Girls earn Cookie Credits to help pay for day camp, resident camp, Girl Scout Gold and Silver Award projects, and other exciting and fun Girl Scout activities.
Cookie Credits can be redeemed for:
- Council-approved day camp
- Council-approved service unit encampments
- River Valleys’ resident camps
- River Valleys’ program events such as:
- Events with sports teams
- Robotics programs
- Horse Tail programs
- Girl Scout Shop and Camp Trading Post purchases

- GSUSA destinations (learn more about destinations)
- Council-approved Girl Scout Junior, Cadette, Senior and Ambassador extended troop trips
- Completed Girl Scout Bronze Award projects
- Approved and completed Girl Scout Silver and Girl Scout Gold Award projects
In the spirit of girl planning, girls should make decisions as to how they will use their Cookie Credits — whether for their own use or for the benefit of the troop.
Cookie Credits expire mid-September in the year following the Cookie Program season during which they were earned. For example, 2014 Cookie Credits will expire in September 2015.
