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.

Don’t forget that girls can save Cookie Credits they earn from year to year in order to spend them on long-range, council-approved trips, troop trips, or Destinations.

Girl Scout Destinations

Girl Scout Destinations are the ultimate adventure for individual girls ages 11 and older! With new opportunities every year, there is 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.

Explore Destinations.

Council Travel

In Summer 2019, Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland hosted two big travel opportunities. Check out the event pages 8 Wonders of Kansas and Colorado trip for more details.

Stay tuned for a big announcement about council travel in Summer 2020 and Summer 2021!

Troop Travel

In addition to regularly scheduled troop meetings, troops or groups of Girl Scouts often plan trips together – 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.   

Use the Travel Appendix as a resource for successful planning, the Travel Checklist to keep track of required paperwork, and submit your Travel Application in plenty of time for approval. Before beginning money-earning activities, refer to Chapter 5 of Volunteer Essentials and submit an application.

Please note: 

  • A Travel Application is required for all overnight activities, near and far.
  • At least one traveling adult must be certified in First Aid and CPR. CPR training requires an in-person testing component. Find upcoming courses on the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland events page.
  • Travel of three or more nights requires the purchase of Girl Scout supplemental insurance through Mutual of Omaha. Contact us at 1-888-686-MINT or info@gskh.org to complete this purchase.
