There are many opportunities to travel when you’re a Girl Scout.
Learning to plan trips and explore new places as an individual, or troop, is a fundamental Girl Scouting experience. Travel is about meeting other amazing girls, developing leadership skills, gaining confidence, and enjoying valuable learning opportunities. Whether an overnight mini-adventure or an international travel opportunity, Girl Scouts learn to appreciate the great outdoors, explore new territories and immerse themselves in other cultures.

GSUSA getaways are prepackaged travel opportunities located in different cities around the country. They are great for first time troops looking to travel. All getaways are quick weekend or short trips that don’t require an application, just a registration. Often programming options are included in the price along with a few meals and sleeping arrangements.
- Girl Scouts Troops ages 11-17.

International Troop Travel
After your troop has experienced domestic travel they may want to travel internationally. There are endless places Girl Scouts are welcome and often travel to. 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 often offer special programs and the facilities serve as inexpensive lodging for members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
