Join the 2018 Walkabout March 9 - 11!

What is a Walkabout? 
A Girl Scout(s) or Girl Scout troop walks the neighborhood selling cookies door-to-door in a residential area with adult supervision, and visit cookie customers you may have missed in January...or who might need to restock their favorites!

Who can resist our esteemed sweet treats when a Girl Scout is at their front door with their favorite cookies?! Not us! Door-to-door sales remains one of the most effective ways to sell cookies. In a recent national study, 78% of those customers who were not approached during a cookie sale stated they would have purchased 2-4 boxes if asked.

Decided on your strategy for selling directly – now what?

Here are our answers to some frequently asked questions:
Can I have a Walkabout in a shopping center, park or other public area?

No. In order to maintain good relationships with property managers, stores and to be fair, walk abouts are only allowed in non-commercial areas. All booth sales must be coordinated through the council, including driveway booths.

Can we do a Walkabout as a troop at one of our meetings?

Yes! What a fun outing for your troop and a great way to help girls reach their goals!

Can we do a Walkabout as a family?

Yes! Girl Scouts embraces family involvement.
