Building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.


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, going on overnight camping trips, participating in community service projects, or flying to one of the four world centers, Girl Scouts are continually expanding their horizons.

Girl Scout destinations
Girl Scout destinations fall into five categories: international, outdoors, science, people, and getaways. Facilitated by Girl Scouts of the USA and hosted by individual Girl Scout councils, GSUSA, and contracted organizations, such as Outward Bound, Girl Scout destinations events or trips open girls up to whole new worlds and ideas.

The Girl Scout camping experience allows girls to live together in simple outdoor settings, to learn how to make their own decisions, and to do fun activities with other girls their own age. The most important benefits for the camper are the opportunities to make new friends, to enjoy the outdoors, to gain confidence in herself as she tries new activities and gains new skills, and to be a member of a caring community.

World Centers
England, Switzerland, India, and Mexico are home to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) four world centers where girls from around the globe can learn more about each other, the Girl Guide/Girl Scout Movement, and the countries they are visiting. The centers sometimes offer special programs, and the facilities provide inexpensive lodging for members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
•  WAGGGS World Centers
Girl Scout troops and groups travel from across the United States year-round to visit Savannah, Georgia, where Juliette Gordon Low founded the Girl Scouts in 1912.  Girl Scouts can visit the Girl Scout First Headquarters and the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace while in Savannah.  Both offer programming for troops and groups and the opportunity to learn more about our Founder and the early years of Girl Scouting.
