Some Girl Scouts To Sit Out Cookie Sale In Protest

Girl Scouts logoMINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Some Minnesota Girl Scouts say they will sit out an upcoming cookie sale to protest plans to sell off some of their camps.

Financial pressures and declining membership have led the Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valleys council to sell four of its 12 camps.

The sales have upset some Girl Scouts and leaders, who have formed an opposition group. One of its leaders, Kim Zaiman of Maplewood, says her daughter and some other members of their troop won’t be selling cookies when the annual sale starts Saturday. And she says the boycott is gaining support.

National Girl Scout officials say many councils have sold property to save money in recent years.
