Applying for Destinations
You can apply this year for trips in the current year or the following year! That gives you time to set goals, participate in money-earning activities, and apply for scholarships. Destinations are available for girls ages 11 to 18. 
 

Applying for Destinations
 

1.  Visit Girl Scouts USA’s Destinations site to see all the amazing 
Destinations trip options.

2.  Complete the online application form. If you are 13 or older, you
can complete it yourselft. If you're 12 or younger, have your parent or
guardian complete it with you. You're welcome to fill out the form
up to four times for four different choices of Destination. If you are
selected for more than one, you may choose your favorite or
attend them all.

Before you jump into the online form, prepare yourself by finding
three unrelated references and complete the application worksheet.
The online application must be completed all at one time. You won't
be able to go back to the application or make changes later.

3.  Earn money for your Destination by participating in Fall
Product and Cookie Financial Literacy programs, and apply for
several different travel scholarships.  

Email customercare@gsmw.org with any travel questions.

Destinations Deadlines

First round applications

Second round applications

After
February 2, 2021

First-round Destinations applications are due by January 15, 2021. 

Submitting your application by the first round deadline will give your girl the greatest chance of acceptance.

Because of uncertainty caused by the pandemic and the later first-round application deadline, there will be no “second-round” application this season, but there will be “rolling admission” starting February 2, 2021.

For Destinations that did not fill during the first-round of applications, providers will accept applications on a rolling basis with details sent upon acceptance, within
2 – 4 weeks.

NEW! Early application period for Summer 2022 Destinations
Because there are fewer 2021 options this season, the Destinations program may not be offering your girl’s dream trip.  If this is the case, we encourage girls to set goals for 2022.  Girls can apply for 2022 Destinations by January 4, 2021 but can also wait to see new
2022 postings and apply from May to June 2021!
