Travel Opportunities

Troop/Group Travel
Girl Scout travel opportunities are a chance for girls to develop self-confidence and leadership skills by working together to plan the adventure of a lifetime.

To plan a safe and enjoyable troop trip, refer to the Troop Trip Guidelines and Safety Activity Checkpoints.

For a 1-2 night trip to a non-council owned site more than 100 miles away from troop’s community or a trip of 3 or more nights, complete and submit a Troop Trip Application.

The Troop Trip Budget and Itinerary can be used to help plan the troop trip. The medicine permission form will be helpful while away on your adventure.

Additional insurance is required if it is:
  • Any participants not registered as Girl Scouts including adults that is 1-2 nights and more than 100 miles away. Plan 2 insurance.
  • All participants for a trip that is 3 or more nights. Plan 3P insurance.
  • All participants for an international trip. Plan 3PI insurance.
Whether traveling locally or globally, girls and adults can work together to start creating their dream adventure right now with these trip planning tools: Girl Scout Destinations
Girl Scout Cadette-Ambassadors can travel to amazing places, try new things, and meet sister Girl Scouts from around the globe through Girl Scout Destinations.

Girl Scout Destinations generally happen during summer, range from a few days to two weeks, and focus on a variety of topics. Past Girl Scout Destinations have included dog sledding in Minnesota, kayaking in Alaska, engineering in Missouri, astronautics in Alabama, and a service challenge in Costa Rica.

Financial assistance may be available. Priority is given to girls participating in Destinations for the first time. Girls must participate in the Fall Nut Sale and Cookie Program Activity to qualify.

Check out next summer's Girl Scout Destinations, the Explore It! Your Guide to Girl Scout Destinations, and an application. New Destinations are posted in August.
