Girls begin their exploration of travel together by learning how to plan their own trips. Leaders gently guide girls into increased responsibility and plan trips of growing complexity and distance over time based on their grade level and previous experience. Girls learn valuable life skills when learning the logistics of travel, goal setting and money earning to fund their experience, how to roll with unexpected changes, and the feeling you get when accomplishing your goals. Check out the How to Travel with your troop section below for more detail on getting started with troop travel.
COVID-19 Update: Troops should assess and consider local state and county health and safety guidance for all of the areas that the trip will include. Consult Girl Scouts Together for the current travel guidelines.
If your troop has questions or needs support, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-338-5248.

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!
