Girl Scouts boycott cookie sales

MINNEAPOLIS (CNN) - Some Girl Scouts in Minnesota refuse to sale cookies because four camps in the area were sold.

The Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valleys council sold four of its 12 the camps because of the financial pressures.

"It's really unfortunate that that would be the target because cookie proceeds really support all the girls' programming, their local community service and teach them so many awesome things," said Barbara Boelk, Girl Scouts spokeswoman.

The annual cookie sale is the primary fundraiser for the Girl Scouts, and chapters keep 70 percent of the proceeds.
