Press Rep Susan Shares Her Troop's "Cookie Money" Trip


Hi! My name is Susan. I'm a Cadette Girl Scout in Troop 9204. Last summer, my troop went on a big trip to Atlanta, Georgia with our cookie money. Earlier last year, we voted on what we would do with the cookie money. Would we give our share of the money to the council and bring home cool prizes, or would we keep our share and go on a big trip? We voted to go on a trip.

At the beginning of summer vacation, my mom and I woke up early one morning. We got dressed and packed our bags. We were ready to go to Atlanta, Georgia. My troop met up in a church parking lot where we sorted out who would ride in what vehicle. After that, we drove to our destination.

Once we arrived, we all went to Subway and bought ourselves a sandwich. Then, we went to Stone Mountain. It was so cool! We climbed all the way to the top. The view was amazing! You could see downtown Atlanta from there! We all climbed back down the way we came up and ate dinner on the grass in front of the mountain. Once it got dark, we got to watch a cool laser show on the side of the mountain.

By then it was late, so after the show we drove to the hotel, checked in, and fell right asleep. The next day, we checked out and went to The World of Coca-Cola. We had a great time! We even got to try foreign sodas! Afterwards, we walked to the Georgia Aquarium. I loved the beluga whales!

Finally, we finished our trip off with a walk through Centennial Park, and ate lunch at the CNN center. Overall, I had a fun time on our trip. I hope my troop can sell a lot of cookies this year so we can go on another fun trip!
