Early Birds got the Worm 

$5 in Cookie Credits for girls who registered early  


All girls who registered for the 2012-13 Girl Scout year before June 30 received $5 in cookie credits.  Those additional credits are now available on family accounts in UltraCamp.  


Early bird patches will be sent out soon.  Registering early means the early bird really did get the worm...or cookie credit?
