From our own backyard to across the ocean, some of the most memorable
moments in a Girl Scout’s life can happen while they are taking trips!
Travelling can offer a wealth of opportunities for girls to develop
skills in leadership and confidence.
There are four different types of council travel opportunities,
which you can find below. It is recommended girls do them in order, as
a progression of travel experiences helps build travel skills.
Overnight Trips - A trip of one—or possibly two—nights away.
These short trips are just long enough to get girls excited about
travel, but not long enough to generate homesickness.
Regional Trips - (Juniors and older). Three- or four-nights
within the girls’ home region taking girls up to a few hours away from home.
National Trips - (Cadettes and older at time of travel). Travel
anywhere in the country and can last up to a week or more.
International Trips - (Cadettes and older at time of travel).
Travel around the world can require one to three years of preparation.
International trips are available to Cadettes, Seniors, and
Ambassadors, but only to those who have successfully participated in a
progression of overnight and extended trips within Girl Scouting.
