Travel Pathway

Where in the World will Girl Scouts Take You?

Girl Scouts offers many travel opportunities so girls can see new places, meet new people, and learn about different cultures and ideas. Whether exploring your own neighborhoods, going on overnight camping trips, participating in community service projects, or flying to one of the four World Centres, Girl Scouts are continually expanding their horizons.

You can participate in the Travel Pathway as an individually registered girl member or by traveling with your troop, service unit, or council. The world is your playground; where will you explore today and dream of conquering tomorrow?


Check out some of the amazing travel adventures available to you through Girl Scouts:

Troop Travel

Girl Scouts offers the opportunity to experience travel through progression with your troop, starting with short trips and building up to international trips when you become older girls!

At your next meeting, ask your friends where in the world do they want to go? How can you make it happen? Earn money for a few years using Girl Scouts' awesome business program until you reach your dreams and find yourselves traveling where you imagined at the start of this unbelievable journey.

Here are a few options for troop travel within Girl Scouts!

National Travel – Progression is the secret to learning how to become a world traveler.  Start traveling locally with your troop, then explore the boundaries of the council, venture into another state, or across the country!  There is no better way to discover the world then with your friends!

Getaways are a fun option troops can explore when planning their own travel adventures.  Getaways are short-term national travel opportunities designed just for Girl Scout troops. They are offered by GSUSA partners or councils and open to any registered troop.

International Travel – International travel gives you the chance to make new friends, learn about other cultures, build leadership skills, and share ideas with women and girls globally. Girl Scouts of the USA founder Juliette Gordon Low was a prolific traveler herself and believed in the global leadership skills girls can attain from traveling the world.

International Events – hosted by World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts World Centre programs and large camping events hosted by international scouting and guiding organizations.

World Centres - Feel the magic by visiting either England, Switzerland, India, and/or Mexico.  Each country is home to one of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) four world centres where girls from around the globe can learn more about each other, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides, and the countries they are visiting. The centres offer special programs, and the facilities provide inexpensive lodging for members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (this is you!).

The world is waiting … where will your troop go next?


Individual Girl Travel

If your troop is not interested in traveling the world, but you are, Girl Scouts has lots of opportunities just for you to travel and meet new friends by registering for trips hosted by authorized Girl Scout groups (council trips or destinations) nationally or internationally!

Council-Sponsored Trips - We believe that each girl deserves a chance to see the world! That’s why we developed these fabulous council trips – to give you opportunities to learn about new cultures and meet new people. Council trips are open to any registered girl member and are a wonderful chance to expand your horizons within Girl Scouts by sharing your love of travel with new friends.

destinations - Girl Scout destinations can whisk girls around the country and to the far corners of the world where they will meet other remarkable girls, develop leadership skills, gain confidence, and enjoy valuable learning opportunities to take action. Girl Scouts destinations are open to girls ages 11-18 and fall into five categories: international, outdoors, science, people, and getaways.
