Girl Scout Travel

Travel

Every girl deserves a chance to see the world! Whether you’re exploring your own neighborhood, going on overnight camping trip, or flying across the world—you’re always expanding your horizon with Girl Scouts. Travel with Girl Scouts from our council and across the United States. There’s an entire world out there waiting to be explored by you.

Ways to Travel

Girl Scout Destinations

Girl Scout Destinations whisk you to the far corners of the Earth! These trips are sponsored by councils across the country and are for all Girl Scouts ages 11 to 17. On these adventures, you will meet girls from all across the work while developing your leadership skills and gaining confidence through travel. From hiking through the Andes to snorkeling with turtles in Costa Rica, adventure is out there!

Girl Scout Destinations are travel programs available to individual Cadette, Senior and Ambassador girls. Each girl applies individually, and on her trip she will have the opportunity to meet girls from all over the US and travel to destinations all over the world! Get more information, download the application and check out the 2019 & 2020 trip listings  here!
