"Many many years ago, Wanda Windersnap, longed to learn more about the outdoors. A classmate at school introduced her to the amazing Girl Scout Program. It had all of the wonderful outdoor activities she loved. However, Wanda decided that she didn’t want to be a Girl Scout because she wasn’t a fan of the Girl Scout Law and Promise. She didn’t want to promise to be honest and fair, faithful and kind, considerate and caring. Wanda preferred to lie, cheat and steal. As she grew up, she decided to start her own group.
The Wild Wilderness Warriors were created. This group prided itself on extreme outdoor skills but didn’t like to follow any rules. They left a wake of trash and ruined nature wherever they traveled. It was sad really. They didn’t have any manners.
Because they liked to participate in extreme outdoor activities, they needed to raise funds. While Wanda Windersnap never wanted to be a Girl Scout, she did want to be able to sell their cookies to raise funds for her group. She saw the success of the Girl Scouts and wanted that for herself. So, one dark night, Wanda stole the original Girl Scout Cookie Recipe and locked it away so that the Girl Scouts could not make their cookies. She intended to hide the recipe until the public demanded their cookies! Then, she planned to have the Wild Wilderness Warriors bake the cookies and steal all of the Girl Scout customers.

Girl Scouts must unite to solve the clues and find the famous recipe! Without the recipe, the success of future Girl Scout Cookie Sales is doomed! You have 45 minutes before Wanda Windersnap and the Wild Wilderness Warriors return from the grocery store with the ingredients to start baking their “Wild Wilderness Warrior’s Buttery Bites” Can you save the day? Cookie lovers everywhere are counting on you! ""
