Travel

Girl Scouts offers girls a chance to see the world, meet new people and learn about different cultures and ideas. Girls can travel as part of a troop, local or council-wide group, or individually through national destinations.

Troop Travel

Girls love trips. Girl Scouts is a great place for them to learn how to plan and take exciting trips, because travel is built on a progression of activities—that is, one activity leads to the next. Girl Scout Daisies, for example, can begin with a discovery walk. As girls grow in their travel skills and experience and can better manage the planning process, they progress to longer trips. Your Journey adult guide has a lot of other ideas about trips that bring the Journey to life.

An Activity and Travel Form or Extended Travel Form is needed for every activity held by troops, service units, or groups of Girl Scouts that goes beyond the regular troop meeting time and place. The planned activity must be consistent with Girl Scout Safety Activity Checkpoints and must relate to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE).

For information about progression, safety and planning travel experiences for your troop, please refer to Volunteer Essentials Appendix for Girl Scout Travel.
