Girl Scouts often provides structured and guided trips to explore these new and far off places. By joining the group, you can become a Girl Scout!
The Girl Scouts on the Go Travel Pathway offers girls leadership and cross-cultural opportunities through regional, national, and international travel. It includes planning, money-earning activities, and participating in the travel experience. Girls can participate through a council-sponsored group or with destinations - a nationally sponsored program by GSUSA in which girls apply for a specific destination and meet other girls from across the street, across the country, or across the oceans. Girls will be provided with the appropriate travel progression or experiences to prepare them for international travel opportunities.
- After three months of planning and money-earning activities, girls head to Chicago for a three-day group getaway. The girls stay at Hostelling International’s downtown hostel, earn a Girl Scout patch, take a tour and see a show.
- Younger girls help plan and organize a day trip to the beach. Once there, they search for sea shells and learn about the ocean.
- Girls discuss and select a service-learning project focusing on the protection of the Costa Rican rainforest. After two years of preparation, research, money-earning activities, and a progression of smaller trips, they spend three weeks working on a service project in Costa Rica. When they return, the girls coordinate a service project to raise awareness about deforestation in Central America.
- Younger girls tour a local ice cream shop, getting to sample new flavors and learning about the process.
- Girls plan, prepare, and travel to a community within their region to assist in building with a local Habitat for Humanity affiliate for one week.
All Girl Scouts will receive a Passport to Leadership to help them track and record their favorite Girl Scout memories.
