Travel

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!

How far will your Girl Scout experience take you? That’s up to you!

 
 
Susu FUNd Travel
To a Girl Scout International World Center!
 

This bi-annual council-sponsored international travel opportunity is designed for Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors who meet the eligibility requirements listed below.  Take off on the next trip to Pax Lodge in London, England in the Summer of 2017!  The application deadline is March 15, 2016.  Thanks to the generousity and vision of Susan Phifer Johnson, a significant portion of the program expenses are provided through the Susu FUNd.  This travel adventure will involve girls in the planning, budgeting, and money-earning, as well as preparations to experience the culture of the country.  When they return they will share highlights of their experience with other Girl Scouts and encourage them to travel to enhance their understanding of other parts of the world.

Girls are required to pay a portion of the expenses.  The amount will be determined by the group based on the itinerary developed by the girls during their planning.  Product sales earnings and money-earning efforts by the group will help offset the individual's cost.  Girls must meet the requirements for international travel, which includes purchasing a Passport.
