Mystery House Contest

For Girls: There is at least ONE secret Mystery House in nearly
every Service Unit. Each Girl Scout to stop by a Mystery House location and/
or leave a cookie door hanger will receive a certificate and a special patch!
2023 Mystery House Clues coming in January.

Wanted: Adults willing to host a Mystery House!
No Girl Scout cookie buying or previous experience required.
2023 Mystery House Hosts Needed coming in January.

Our Mystery House contest encourages girls to keep going door-to-door after the booth sale period begins. The goal is to have at least one Mystery House in every Service Unit.

Here’s how it works:

  • There are several Mystery House locations throughout
    Orange County.
  • Each Girl Scout to leave a door hanger or visit a
    Mystery House in person location will receive a
    certificate and patch!
  • Girls should leave a door hanger with the girl’s first
    name, Troop # and contact information for an adult
    leader or parent/guardian.
  • Hosts will provide GSOC with the information for each
    Girl Scout who has left a door hanger or visited in-person. GSOC will mail the patch & certificate directly
    to each Girl Scout.
  • Girls should not ask customers if they are a Mystery
    House. Girls must follow all Girl Scout safety rules and
    should not enter homes.
