About travel

Travel

Girl Scouts love to travel—from the field trips they take as Brownies to the global adventures they go on as teens. If you love exploring different places and cultures, then Girl Scouts is the place for you.

You can experience all that our country has to offer, whether you’re touring space camp in Alabama, taking in a Broadway show in New York City, or visiting the birthplace of Girl Scouts’ founder, Juliette Gordon Low, in Savannah, Georgia. And you can plan even bigger adventures around the world, traveling with other Girl Scouts who share your love of adventure.

Where can you go? The four world centers: Our Cabaña in Cuernavaca, Mexico; Our Chalet in Adelboden, Switzerland; Pax Lodge in London, England; and Sangam in Pune, India, are owned and operated by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). Staffed by volunteers and paid international staff, the centers offer Girl Scouts and Girl Guides a comfortable, inexpensive, and safe place for short stays or long-term accommodations. Or apply to go on a Girl Scout destination to places like China, Costa Rica, Switzerland, Patagonia, Peru, Scotland, Germany, Mexico, and more!

Many Girl Scout troops finance this travel through money earned selling Girl Scout Cookies. Learn more about our Cookie Program.
