From day trips to local businesses to international adventures, Girl Scout troops often plan trips, travel and other activities beyond their regular troop meetings. Many of these trips and activities require approval by the Girl Scout council – either because they involved high risk activities or overnight stays or to fulfill Safety Activity Checkpoint requirements.

If a troop is planning an extended trip of three nights or more, they must go through the Extended Troop Trip Planning workbook, which goes into the ins-and-outs of planning a Girl Scout trip.


Destinations are adventures designed just for Girl Scouts ages 11-17 and are as diverse as outdoor experiences in the EuropeCosta Rican jungle or learning about the aquatic biology of the Great Lakes – there is truly something for everyone! Girl Scouts in grades 7-12 may apply for Girl Scout destinations.
