Travel

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 touring 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.

Where can you go?  Places like China, Costa Rica, Switzerland, Patagonia, Peru, Scotland, Germany, Mexico, and more!

How far will your Girl Scout experience take you? That’s up to you!

Council Trips and Destinations are two unique travel opportunities available to GSCTX girls. Destinations are hosted by GSUSA and are eligible for Destination specific financial assistance. Council Trips are hosted by GSCTX.

Upcoming Council Trips

 

Check out these GSCTX-sponsored trips! Girls will coordinate with each trip leader and help plan their trips from activities and transportation to food and entertainment.

Girls who attend these trips are eligible to money earn with the Council Trips troop and can use their Cookie Dough to attend the trip but are not eligible for Destinations specific financial assistance.

Don't have time to help plan but still want to go? No problem! Email the trip coordinator, pay your deposit, and your spot is reserved. Trips are girl-led, girl-planned and girl-enjoyed!

Dates and costs are subject to change based on interest and transportation costs.
Trips already have chaperones; these are not mom-and-me events.
All trip costs must be paid directly to GSCTX. Send check made payable to Troop 3995 to Bryan/College Station Service Center. Include the girl's name and trip in the check memo.
Girls are eligible to use cookie dough for council trips. Not enough cookie dough? Girls can apply for Financial Partnership for Council Trips.
