Girl Scout Travel

Travel

Girl Scouts love to travel—from the field trips they take as Brownies to the global adventures they go on as teens. If you love exploring different places and cultures, then Girl Scouts is the place for you.

You can experience all that our country has to offer, whether you’re “blasting off” at Space Camp in Alabama, taking in a Broadway show in New York City, or visiting the birthplace of Girl Scouts’ founder, Juliette Gordon Low, in Savannah, Georgia. And you can plan even bigger adventures around the world, traveling with other Girl Scouts who share your love of adventure.

Check out Girl Scout Destinations, the ultimate adventure program for girls ages 11 and older. With a ton of different trips to apply for every year—from surfing camp on the east coast and breathtaking hikes out west, to the crazy-cool wonder of new cultures abroad—there’s something amazing for everyone to experience.

Make friends from all over the country as you travel with Girl Scouts from different states, see and learn new things, and pack your bags full of inspiring, life-changing experiences and memories. Find your trip today!

Where can you go?  Places like China, Costa Rica, Switzerland, Patagonia, Peru, Scotland, Germany, Mexico, and more!

What are Destinations?

It’s a term sometimes used to describe the three options in the Travel Pathway. But basically, Destinations mean TRAVEL!

Three kinds of trips are available:

Destinations

  • Trips designed for individual Girl Scouts from across the nation and globe; includes domestic and international opportunities
  • For girls age 11-18
  • Home councils (that’s us!) send girls’ applications to the trip sponsor
    Due to us by November 13 (for Round 1) or February 5 (for Round 2)

Getaways

  • Short-term domestic travel for Girl Scout troops or groups
  • Apply directly to the event sponsor
  • Ages vary; see event listings

International Events

  • WAGGGS programs and international events for troops and groups hosted by international scouting and guiding organizations.
  • Apply directly to the event sponsor
  • Ages vary; see event listings

How can I help pay for the trips?

Glad you asked! In addition to participating in the Fall Product and Cookie programs, individual Cadette, Seniors, and Ambassador can apply for our council’s Travel Grant. It’s a grant of up to $500 to go towards any of the three types of GSUSA Travel (Destinations, Getaways, or International Events) OR a council-sponsored trip (a trip that our council plans and puts on).

Applications are awarded on a rolling basis.
