Cookie Stand - This is a “lemonade” type stand a Girl Scout can set up on her own own property (i.e., in front of her house) to sell cookies as her city and/or home owners’ association permits.

Walkabouts - When a Girl Scout troop works together to map out then walk a neighborhood selling cookies door-to-door in a residential area with adult supervision. 

Rolling Sale - Putting cookies in a wagon and doing direct sales to customers in residential areas with adult supervision. 

Caravan - Cadette, Senior & Ambassador Troops go door-to-door with a buddy in a residential area while the supervising adults follow in a car with the cookies.

Can I have a rolling sale/Walkabout/Caravan in a shopping center, park or other public area?  No. In order to maintain good relationships with property managers, stores, and to be fair, only booth sales are allowed in non-residential areas. All booth sales must be coordinated through your Service Unit Booth Sale Coordinator.

Can we do a rolling sale/Walkabout/Caravan 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 rolling sale as a family?  Yes! Girl Scouts embraces family involvement.
