If you are planning a trip with your troop there are several things to keep in mind. It's not just what girls do, but how they are engaged that creates a high-quality experience. All Girl Scouting activities, including troop trips, are designed to use three processes that make Girl Scouting unique. When used together, these processes - Girl Led, Learning by Doing, and Cooperative Learning - ensure the quality and promote the fun so intregal to Girl Scouting.
That's why we strongly recommend older girls take the trainings required for adults so they will assist and take part in the planning process.
At least one accompanying adult volunteer must have completed the appropriate and required GSU and/or GSUSA trainings within the last two years.
-Up to two nights of travel
When planning an extended overnighter, national and/or international trips, adult volunteers must review Volunteer Essentials travel guidelines and follow the appropriate Safety Activity Checkpoints. Paperwork must be completed and on file with Girl Scouts of Utah Program Department six weeks prior to departure.
If your troup would like to travel internationally, you must submit an International Intent to Travel Application. Then you must attend Planning International Trips to recieve your International Travel Application. Due to infrequent demand for this training, it is available by request as needed by the groups and troops planning international trips.
