Traveling with Girl Scouts isn’t your typical vacation. On these trips, you’ll make friends from all over the country and worldwide while experiencing the Girl Scout leadership keys to Discover, Connect, and Take Action, and do badge work along the way.  These trips are sponsored by councils across the country and are for all Girl Scouts ages 11 to 17.  

Applications are now being accepted for Girl Scout Destinations; the deadline for round 1 applications is fast approaching on November 15, with rolling deadlines for trips extending to February 1.
