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!
