Travel the World!

In Girl Scouting, travel is about fun, exploration, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences that allow you—the girl—to learn to appreciate other cultures, new places, and the outdoors. Through all of this, you learn about yourself and you become a leader as you plan, budget, earn money, prepare, and participate in regional, national, and international trips.

If you are interested in traveling, start talking to your troop leader and fellow Girl Scouts. There are so many opportunities out there waiting for you! You can travel with your troop throughout Utah, the United States, and even internationally, or you can travel individually on a Girl Scout destination. Visit Girl Scouts of the USA’s website for travel tips, guides, and opportunities.

Girl Scouts of Utah offers training for your troop to attend to get you prepared for traveling. Talk to your troop leader to sign up for a Planning Extended Overnight and National Trips Training to learn everything you’ll need to know!

There are also several travel opportunities available through GSUSA for Juliettes and troops alike. Here's just a brief look!
