Travel Opportunities

If there’s one thing Girl Scouts love, it’s traveling. From the field trips they take as Brownies to the global adventures they go on as teens, exploring different places and cultures is an important part of scouting. Where can you go as a Girl Scout? We’re glad you asked. You have the opportunity to travel to places like China, Costa Rica, Switzerland, Patagonia, Peru, Scotland, Germany, Mexico… the list goes on!

If you’re wondering how to pay for it all, don’t fret. Money earned from participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program is often used to help finance travel opportunities.
