Cookie Dough

Cookie Dough/Fall FUNds Redemption Form

What is Cookie Dough?

Cookie Dough is credit that may be earned by Girl Scouts during the annual Cookie Program. Girls choose to earn “Dough” in lieu of another recognition item. Check your order card insert for more information on the amounts of Cookie Dough you can earn.

Cookie Dough is issued independently by each council and cannot be transferred to other councils. Cookie Dough earned at other councils cannot be accepted for redemption by GSKSMO.

Girls who earn Cookie Dough will receive a postcard stating their amount earned in April.

Fall FUNds can be used the same way Cookie Dough can be used.

Here's how you can use Cookie Dough:
 

Girl Scout Shop Purchases

SHOPPING IN-STORE:
Cookie Dough can be redeemed for in-store purchases at our council store, located at our headquarters in Kansas City. The shop is open Monday–Friday and some Saturdays. View store hours

Girls (and their parent/caregivers) can redeem their Dough when they check out; simply tell the cashier the girl’s name. Balances left will be left on account and cannot be redeemed for cash. Troop leaders can shop with the girl’s Cookie Dough if the troop leader has possession of the postcard mailed to the girl. If the parent has lost the card we can provide a replacement (request must be emailed at least one business day in advance by emailing us). The leader must have that card in possession to use the Dough. This provides us proof of permission for use.

SHOPPING ONLINE:
Cookie Dough can also be used in our online shop however a special code is needed. Complete the Cookie Dough/Fall FUNds Redemption Form to request a code. It may take up to four weeks to receive your code and codes expire September 30, 2018. Keep in mind that once you request the online code you can no longer use Cookie Dough in the store. Refunds are not available. As with most online shopping, shipping and handling fees may apply.

Resident Camp

Turn that Dough into s’mores and sleeping under the stars when you use Cookie Dough for resident camp. We've established partnerships with surrounding sister councils who have agreed to accept GSKSMO Cookie Dough for your Girl Scout to attend one of their resident camp programs. Please refer to the Resident Camp Programs page to find out which councils are accepting our Cookie Dough.

Once you have selected the camp you would like to attend please visit that council’s camp registration page to register and pay any applicable deposits. After registration, you will initiate Cookie Dough use by filling out the Cookie Dough/Fall FUNds Redemption Form and emailing to campdept@gsksmo.org. Please allow 2-4 weeks to verify Cookie Dough amounts and for the amount to be applied to your camp balance at the sister council. It’s important that you follow the partner council’s camp payment policy and timelines to secure your registration.

*Please note that Cookie Dough may only be used for resident camp program registration at the councils and camp listed on the Resident Camp Programs page. Once Cookie Dough use has been requested it will not be refunded and that amount cannot be used for anything else.
