Before the Program

The 2022 Cookie Program begins December 11th, 2021. Ensure your troop is prepared by following our “Before the Program” Checklist below:

All Girl Scouts in the troop are registered/renewed for the 2021-22 membership year.

The Troop Cookie Champion has completed the Product Program Champion Agreement and the 2022 Cookie Program Training in gsLearn.

Host a caregiver meeting to discuss the Cookie Program, important dates and details, and distribute materials.

Set up your troop in eBudde.

Set up your troop in Digital Cookie (DOC).

Getting Set Up in eBudde

Log in to eBudde. At the start of the program, you will receive an email with login instructions.

Review your Troop Dashboard.

Enter your troop details in the Troop Settings tab. If not already entered, you’ll be asked to enter your bank name, bank account and routing numbers and your opt-in/opt-out status for rewards.

Verify all of the girls in your troop appear on your eBudde roster. If you have missing girls, double-check they are registered for the 2021-22 membership year. If they are registered, contact Member Care at with your troop number and girl’s name(s).

eBudde App

The eBudde App provides support for volunteers at every phase of the Cookie Program. It has everything you need to manage orders on the go, all from your mobile phone or tablet! Available for download wherever you buy apps.

Getting Set Up in Digital Cookie

You will receive an email on November 23rd, inviting you to log in to Digital Cookie. Use the link from that email to open Digital Cookie or login here. You will get access to Digital Cookie before girls and families have access on Dec. 11th.

You will be prompted to create a password. Create a password that you will remember and keep it handy in a safe place throughout the program. Login using your new password. Your email address should be the same email address you received your Digital Cookie email from.

Complete the welcome requirements (video and Terms and Conditions). If you are also a parent of a Girl Scout, you may be asked to complete additional welcome requirements. *If you are a parent, your site will change slightly on Dec. 11th when girl access begins. You will be able to change your role from Parent to Volunteer.  

Once you’re logged in as a volunteer, you will be able to setup your Troop Links. See tipsheets below for instructions. Your troop links can be used by customers who want to support the troop but don’t necessarily have a connection to a Girl Scout. Troop links will appear on the GSUSA Cookie Finder on February 18th, 2022, but are available to use throughout the entire program.

Hosting a Cookie Rally

When Girl Scouts band together, they are unstoppable! Celebrate the Girl Scout sisterhood by hosting a cookie rally to encourage girls to grow and learn as a team through the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Whether you gather in person or via a virtual event, use these resources for inspirational and informative activities that will help each girl realize she can do anything – especially with her sisters by her side.

Cookie Rally Guidebook – Use this guidebook to help you plan your rally event from start to finish!

Not ready to host a rally on your own? GSCB is hosting a 3-part rally series December – February. Check out our Events Calendar to find out more and encourage your Girl Scouts to sign up. (P.S. FREE patches are available for participating in GSCB rallies! These will be available with the troop final rewards at the end of the 2022 Cookie Program.)
