If this is your first time to travel with Girl Scouts or you’d like to review what it takes to get a trip across the United States together, join us for an educational evening on the ins and outs of Girl Scout travel. You will leave with a great understanding of what it takes to put together a girl-led trip that is a fun adventure for all!

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • use the readiness factors to help girls and adults prepare for extended trips, discuss different types of Girl Scout travel opportunities, and apply progression to these opportunities
  • put together a trip plan and timeline in keeping with the council’s procedures; Build a team of adults to support the girls in their travels; and clarify the adults’ roles and responsibilities
  • guide girls through budgeting and money-earning to support a Girl Scout trip
  • anticipate common risks associated with trips and manage (reduce or eliminate) those risks; guide girls in achieving physical fitness for the trip; and guide girls in packing for the trip.

Please note that we will be focusing on domestic travel. Girl Scout Destinations and international travel will not be covered during this class.
