2016 Girl Scout Cookie Program

For 10 years, the price of Girl Scout Cookies in southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina has remained at $3.50 per box, despite increases in the cost of cookies from our baker (13 percent increase since 2006). For the 2016 cookie program, cookies in our Council area will be $4 per box.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the nation's leading financial literacy and entrepreneurial program for girls. Through participation in the cookie program, girls learn goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics—aspects essential to leadership, to success and life.

There are 112 councils nationwide and each determines the price of Girl Scout Cookies.
