Fall Product turns into climbing adventure, high aspirations for cookie sales

Girl Scout Brownie Troop 58700 from Newport, Goshen, Lempster and Claremont, NH, saw the new climbing adventure badge and it was their top choice to earn this year. They had never sold Fall Product before, but set a goal to sell enough to fund this trip. They more than doubled that goal and so once all the calendars aligned, 10 girls climbed as troop on January 26.

Troop Leader Sarah Mills said “I’m so proud of these girls! They learned goal setting with their sales. Today some of them were nervous about heights, but they each got a little higher with every climb. Others were fearless as they reached the top without hesitating. They all cheered on their troop mates and called out holds if needed as the others climbed. Our girls LOVE the new badges and the families are loving how they’re growing through (Girl) Scouts.”

The girls are now determining their goals for Girl Scout Cookie sales. Mills said “On an individual level, several of my girls are trying to maximize their cookie dough to go to Farnsworth this summer and/or do some council day or weekend camp programs. On a troop level, seven of my 10 are third graders and they’re all wanting to earn Bronze awards, so they’re saving most of their cookie money to build the troop account for next year when they start working towards Bronze.”

Londonderry Girl Scouts plan Target Sports Day
