Fall Product Program

 

Why Participate?

  • The Fall Product Program (selling magazines, nuts and candy) is a great way to kick off the Girl Scout year by quickly earning money for uniforms, Journey Books, camp and other fun troop activities.
  • Girls have the chance to earn additional bonus rewards and patches earned only by girls that participate in both Fall AND Cookie programs.
  • Girls learn five life skills: goal setting, money management, decision making, business ethics, and people skills.
     

How Troops Get Started:

  • Make sure all girls in your troop are 2021 registered members
  • Ask your service unit if a Fall Product training or Rally will be hosted 
  • Submit your Fall Product Troop Agreement Form (Forms and Guides section below)
  • If you are opening a new troop bank account or changing signers on an existing bank account, complete and update all Troop Banking paperwork (troopbanking@girlscoutcsa.org)
     

Ask your Service Unit Product Manager for more information, or Member Services at info@girlscoutcsa.org or 800-474-1912.

Individually Registered Members can also participate in Fall Product program!  You will not need to open a bank account. For more information about how you can participate, please email info@girlscoutcsa.org.
