In Rhode Island, the cookie incentives are as follows:
For 25-69 boxes a patch
70-99 boxes a larger patch
100-149 a 100+ patch
150+ boxes a 150+ patch plus a T-shirt
In addition, each girl receives $.20 towards camp credit which can be doubled
if they go to a 2-week resident camp.
The cookies sell for $3/box and the troop gets $.25.
Other councils offer different incentives using stuffed animals at the 125
box level. When my children and I were in that council my troop consistantly
sold 1500 boxes of cookies.
For whatever reason, stuffed animal incentives and backpacks work!
