Where in the world will Girl Scouts take you?
Girl Scouts offers many travel opportunities so girls can see new places, meet new people and learn about different cultures and ideas. Whether exploring your own neighborhoods, going on overnight camping trips, participating in community service projects, or flying to one of the four World Centres, Girl Scouts are continually expanding their horizons.

You can participate in the Travel Pathway as an individually registered girl member or by traveling with your troop, service unit, council or with girls from around the world. The world is your playground; where will you explore today and dream of conquering tomorrow?
