Every girl deserves a chance to see the world. Girl Scouts offers many different travel opportunities so girls can see new places, meet new people, and learn about different cultures and ideas. Whether exploring their own neighborhoods, their regions, their country, or the world, Girl Scouts are continually expanding their horizons.

From local day trips to coast-to-coast treks, learn how to explore the country with Girl Scouts! GSUSA has created this handy Guide to U.S. Travel to assist you and your troop with the planning of all your troop trips from field trips across town to trips to the corners of the US.
After you’ve reviewed the document mentioned above, explore our “Troop Trip” page for more information on the requirements for Girl Scouts approved travel with your troop.
Girl Scouts can fund their travel experience through the Fall Financial Literacy Program, Cookie Program, and troop and individual “Money-Earning” activities that are approved by GSMW. Please review the additional information below.
“Progression” in Girl Scout travel language means that girls participate in shorter trips to gain skills and experience in preparation for the longer, more distant, or more culturally challenging trips.
You can start the Girl Scout travel progression with your Daisy troop. But even if your troop of Cadettes has minimal travel experience, they can still prepare for an international trip by time they are a Senior or an Ambassador.
Regardless of a girl’s age, they should start their travel progression similarly and take all the steps in between to become prepared for extended and international travel.
Every group is different and has unique experience, but this table shows some general grade level guidelines.
