Travel Pathway:  Council Sponsored Trips!

We believe that each and every girl deserves a chance to see the world! That’s why we developed these trips—to give you opportunities to learn about new cultures and meet new people. You will also develop valuable skills such as goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. You know these skills from participating in the Girl Scout Programs, now sharpen them as you travel the world!

We are currently planning up to two years in advance to allow you the time to fundraise for the trip. It is also the perfect time to use your cookie money towards a trip! Decide if you want to participate in one trip or all of them!  If you are interested in the trip or want to learn more please contact travel@girlscoutsnorcal.org

Council trips are supervised by approved volunteers who have a passion for travel. These adults are there to help the participants every step of the way, ensuring the girls are ready for their upcoming adventure. They will also assist the girls with money-earning opportunities to help finance part of the trips.

Tip for Cadettes – Every other year Cadettes visit Savannah, Georgia or London!  The Birthplace and Pax Lodge are two of the most popular Girl Scout venues to visit.  The trips alternate each year so girls can participate in multiple travel opportunities as Cadettes.
