Travel Pathway

Girl Scouting offers many safe and unique travel opportunities for girls of all ages to see new places, meet new people, and learn about different cultures.  Travel Pathway programs offer girls, regardless of previous Girl Scout involvement, leadership opportunities through regional, national and international travel.

Girls are encouraged to explore their world and learn what they can do to make it better through travel program activities and service projects.  Whether you are a Brownie going on an overnight, a Junior participating in a trip to the capital or a teen heading off to another country, Girl Scouts are constantly expanding their horizons.

The Travel Pathway: Is available to any girl regardless of previous Girl Scouting involvement.

  • Offers troop/group, council and GSUSA initiated destinations.
  • Incorporates the Girl Scout Leadership Experience processes:  girl-led, learning by doing, and cooperative learning
  • Presents girls with opportunities to prepare, plan, money-earn and participate in travel opportunities
  • Engages and supports both existing and new volunteers
