Girl Scouts love to travel—from field trips in elementary school to global adventures as teens. Our organization is the right place for any girl who loves exploring different places and cultures. Girl Scouts can travel through planning a getaway with your troop, council-sponsored trips, National Girl Scout Destinations.

Planning a trip?

If your troop is already planning a trip, make sure you are ready to go:

The Troop Travel Resource Guide and Extended Travel Training can be helpful for leaders planning a trip for the first time. Girls will want to work through the Girl Travel Planner as they plan their own travel experience as well.

Did you know you can bank program credit earned in the Fall Product and Cookie Programs? Learn more about saving funds to make their travel experience possible.
