GSKH Travel

Every girl deserves a chance to see the world! Girl Scouts offers many different travel opportunities so girls can see new places, meet new people, and learn about different cultures and ideas. Whether exploring their own neighborhoods, going on overnight trips, participating in council-sponsored trips, flying to one of the four world centers, or going on a Girl Scout Destination, Girl Scouts are continually expanding their horizons.

Troop or Group Travel

In addition to regularly scheduled troop meetings, troops or groups of Girl Scouts often plan trips together. Some Girl Scout troops work together just for travel! Traveling can include anything from a local day trip to an international adventure. Girls and adults work together to plan, budget, and arrange trip details according to the guidelines and requirements for travel.

Forms page

Information and links for troop and group travel are found in the Travel Appendix or on the Forms page.

Council-sponsored trips

Do you have an interest in travel? Whether you have little travel experience or a lot, a new adventure is waiting for you. Check out these options and register online for your favorite! Don’t forget that girls in fourth through 12th grade may bank Cookie Credits from year to year in order to apply them toward a long-range council approved trip (including troop trips) or a destination. Adults, we didn’t leave you out! If you are interested in our travel committee or being a chaperone, please contact info@gskh.org.
