Are you interested in visiting new destinations throughout the world? Then this is the place for you! Exciting adventures await you when traveling with your sister Girl Scouts.
There are many opportunities for travel in Girl Scouts. Learning to plan trips and travel as a group is one of the basic experiences in Girl Scouting. In Girl Scouting, travel is about fun, exploration, and progressive experiences in appreciating the outdoors, new places, and other cultures. As girls grow older and more experienced in travel, the scope of their travel broadens to include travel across the country or abroad on a girl planned trip with sister Girl Scouts, or as an individual in a council or Girl Scouts of the USA sponsored Destination for Girls.
Safety is the most important thing to consider when planning trips and traveling. Girl Scouts of the USA provides guidelines for travel in Safety Activity Checkpoints. Information from activities to transportation to number of adults needed is covered in this important document.
ANY overnight trip, day trip greater than 250 miles one-way and ANY international trip must be registered with the council by completing and turning in Troop Trip Application Form (MS-50a/b), available through your Neighborhood team, MSE or online.
Destinations are a program for teen girls to travel as an individual and go somewhere new, meet new people and enjoy new experiences. Trips fall into five categories: international, outdoors, science, people, and getaways events.
Getaways are short term travel opportunities designed for Girl Scout troops or groups.
International events are hosted by international scouting and guiding organizations and include World Association of Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting World Center programs and large camping events.
Share your experience with girls who are considering taking a trip next year and offer to speak to a troop, other than your own, in your area about your trip.
