Travel Opportunities

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

Troops can travel in a multitude of ways that are progressively more challenging. Some examples of ways that troops can travel together are: 

  • Field Trips (all age levels)
  • Overnight Trips (Brownies or older)
  • Extended Overnight Trips (Juniors)
  • National Trips (Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors)
  • International Trips (Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors)
All of these ways of traveling offer something unique to girls and require a different level of approval, training, and preparation. Review the resources below to learn what is required for your troop of girls to travel the world!

*Note: High Adventure Activities are a separate component of travel that also require paperwork and approval. These includes activities from swimming to rock climbing and everything in between—please see the resources below for further information.

There are also several travel opportunities available through GSUSA. Here's just a brief look!
