Girl Scouts posing with local children in Costa Rica

“On the second-to-last day at the beach, the girls and I helped a local school by painting the kindergarten building. The next day we got to go back and meet all of the kids. We got to experience what school is like for them – also we learned more about their culture, and music.” –Brooke S., GSCTX Girl Scout, on her Destinations trip to Costa Rica

TWO UNIQUE WAYS TO TRAVEL

 

Destinations

Go on a journey of a lifetime with other Girl Scouts from across the country. Destinations are hosted by GSUSA. There’s financial aid available specifically for Destinations trips.

Council Trips

Girl-led and girl-cherished! Grab your Girl Scout Sisters and plan your own adventure – from the sights you’ll see, to the food you’ll eat! Adult trip leaders will be there to help when you need them, but the journey is all yours!

No time to help plan the trip? No worries! Just email the trip coordinator, pay your deposit, and your spot is reserved. If you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers. Check out some of our Frequently Asked Travel Questions. You can also use these checklists (domesticinternational) to help you prep for travel near and far.
