Girl Scouts backpacking


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.

Travel as a Troop

Troop travel is planned and implemented by girls and adults in troops. The majority of the participants belong to the same troop, or they can coordinate with other troops to travel together. Travel should be age appropriate and should be progressive based on the travel experience and readiness of the girls in the troop. Troop camping and troop sponsored events at Girl Scouts – Diamonds Camps and Properties are also available.

You can experience all that our country has to offer, whether you’re “blasting off” at 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.
