2019 Cookie Entrepreneur Officer Celebration

On Saturday, May 18, GSCCC celebrated our Cookie Entrepreneur Officers who sold 1,000 boxes or more of Girl Scout Cookies this year. More than 100 girls gathered at Camp Skimino in Williamsburg to be rewarded for their success. The camp, a year-round, 98-acre location recently won the title of Best Summer Camp as part of Coastal Virginia Magazine’s Best of Readers’ Choice Award contest, making it the perfect place to celebrate this year’s top sellers! Want to attend this camp? Click here to register for summer camp by May 31.

At the outdoor event, the girls enjoyed high-adventure camp activities like canoeing, rock wall climbing, archery and more. Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast CEO Tracy Keller congratulated the girls on a job well done before the girls shared their goals for the upcoming season, some go-getters even aiming to sell 5,000 boxes!
