Join the 2023 Walkabout March 3-5


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. They also visit cookie customers they may have missed or those 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 remain 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 two to four boxes if asked.

Walkabout Patches are available for those that participate in the GSSJC Council shops! 

Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I have a Walkabout in a shopping center, park, or other public area?

No. To maintain good relationships with property managers, stores and to be fair, walkabouts 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.


Now that you are ready for your Walkabout, let’s make the most of it!

  • Map out neighborhoods for your Walkabout and check them off as you walk them.
  • Decorate your wagon or cart for your Walkabout to create excitement in the neighborhood. (Here are a few resources!)
  • Next, after March 5, go to the Girl Scout Shop nearest you, show your Walkabout photos, and receive a cool patch!
