Travel

Girl Scouts love to travel—from the field trips they take as Brownies to the global adventures they go on as teens. If you love exploring different places and cultures, then Girl Scouts is the place for you.

You can experience all that our country has to offer, whether you’re “blasting off” at Space Camp in Alabama, taking in a Broadway show in New York City, or visiting the birthplace of Girl Scouts’ founder, Juliette Gordon Low, in Savannah, Georgia. And you can plan even bigger adventures around the world, traveling with other Girl Scouts who share your love of adventure.

Check out Girl Scout Destinations, the ultimate adventure program for girls ages 11 and older. With a ton of different trips to apply for every year—from surfing camp on the east coast and breathtaking hikes out west, to the crazy-cool wonder of new cultures abroad—there’s something amazing for everyone to experience.

Make friends from all over the country as you travel with Girl Scouts from different states, see and learn new things, and pack your bags full of inspiring, life-changing experiences and memories. Find your trip today!

Where can you go?  Places like China, Costa Rica, Switzerland, Patagonia, Peru, Scotland, Germany, Mexico, and more!

Girl Scout Guide to Global Travel

Adult Guide to girl scout global travel

Girl Scout troops and groups travel from across the United States year-round to visit the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace—a Girl Scout national center in Savannah, Ga. and the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, founder of Girl Scouts of the USA. Built in 1821, the house has been elegantly restored to reflect the 1880s and is located in the heart of the Savannah Historic District. "The Birthplace," as it is commonly called by Girl Scouts nationwide, was the city's first National Historic Landmark. Girls who visit can take part in programs and learn more about the remarkable founder of Girl Scouts of the USA. Educational programs and hands-on activities bridge the gap between the past and the present and introduce visitors to the early years of Girl Scouting.

England, Switzerland, India, and Mexico are home to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) four world centers where girls from around the globe can learn more about each other, the Girl Guide/Girl Scout Movement, and the countries they are visiting. The centers sometimes offer special programs, and the facilities provide inexpensive lodging for members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
