Expanded Cookie Dough Uses

We are excited to announce the Expanded Use of Cookie Dough for Summer 2021! We have outlined three new ways girls will be able to use their Cookie Dough this summer. We are allowing troops to request reimbursement for Cookie Dough for their approved activities and events, something only Service Units have been allowed before, and we are allowing girls to use their Cookie Dough for a friend they bring with them, some restrictions apply, please see details below. Finally, we are also selling discounted Lagoon and Roaring Springs ticket through the store, but act fast there are limited quantities available, see details on reserving your tickets today.

Because there are special considerations with Cookie Dough we have to be very thoughtful in how it can be used. Below is a list of ways it will expand for Summer 2021 beginning today and ending September 30, 2021:
 

  • Troop Activity and Event Reimbursement, must fill out the  Troop Activities and Event form for approval
    • Must have 2 Adults and 2 Girls attending event or activity
    • Maximum $100 in Cookie Dough reimbursable per girl per event
    • Must be pre-approved, and reimbursed after event takes place
    • Troops cannot use as a fundraiser
  • “Bring a Friend” for all approved events 
    • Cookie Dough can be used to “Bring a Friend” to the same event or activity as the girl that earned the Cookie Dough. Only one “friend” per event per girl can be approved for reimbursement
    • Can be used for non-Girl Scout girls in grades k-12 when Plan 2 insurance allows non-Girl Scout attendance to the event
    • Can be used for other Girl Scouts in grades k-12
    • Reimbursement will need to identify the Girl Scout using her Cookie Dough for a specific friend in reimbursement forms
  • Lagoon and Roaring Springs tickets
    • Must be a Girl Scout member to purchase

Event Registration

Registration for Girl Scouts of Silver Sage sponsored events is based on space available, and processed on a first-come-first-served basis. Unless otherwise specified, registrations close one week prior to the event.

Troops and individuals (girls and adults) must be registered for the current Girl Scout year to register or participate in an event. If the event is a recruitment event, an exception will be made.

The appropriate event/activity adult-girl ratios, as outlined in SafetyWise and Volunteer Essentials, must be followed. Event listings will indicate whether it is a drop off event or if parent/guardian or leaders are required.

Event registrations can be completed online through the links below or through the council calendar.

Waiting List

If an activity has filled, we do start a waiting list. Quite often a girl will not be able to attend, so we do refer to the waiting list to fill these spots. If you receive notification that an activity is full, please contact program@girlscouts-ssc.org to add your daughter to the wait list.

Juliettes

Juliette Girl Scouts may attend all events for their program age level unless otherwise noted.

Bring-a-Friend

A Tag-along is defined as a non-registered child, or a registered Girl Scout who is not of the level specified for the program, event, or activity.

Tag-alongs are not permitted at an event unless the event registration specifically states otherwise in which case Tag-alongs must pay the event fee.

Cancellation Policy

GSSSC is reluctant to cancel programs. However, occasionally the need arises due to weather, safety concerns or low registration. When bad weather results in a cancellation, every attempt will be made to contact the registrants. Please maintain accurate contact information with Girl Scouts so staff can reach you in the event of a last-minute cancellation.

Drop Off/Pick Up Policy

• Due to safety rules and staffing requirements, participating Girl Scouts cannot be dropped off more than 10 minutes early. Guardians who arrive earlier will be asked to stay until the 10 minute time is reached.
• If a Girl Scout is picked up late, a $15 fee for every 15 minutes or fraction thereof will be applied.
• If you are going to be late, you must contact the Council office (or Program Phone in your confirmation email) to avoid being charged the late fee.
• After 15 minutes, if no one has called Council, activity staff will call guardian and if needed, emergency contact.
• Girl Scouts left after 1 hour past the end of activity, without notification, may be released to the authorities or child protective services

Refunds

Refunds are only given if written cancellations are received prior to the registration deadline, which can be found in the activity description. Full refunds are issued after the printed registration deadline for council programs only if the program is full or cancelled or in the event of a serious illness or death in the family. For serious illness, a doctor’s written note is required within one week after the program
