Matching Girl Scout T-shirts? Check. Camera and photo scavenger hunt to-do list? Check. Map of sites to see? Check! After months of planning, preparation and anticipation, the girls of Troop 10406 packed their bags in August and headed west to California.
Nine Girl Scout Seniors traveled with six adult chaperons over 2,000 miles from Buffalo, MN to spend a week in San Francisco. The troop has gone on two other major trips together; however, this was the first time that they did the majority of planning.
They covered a lot of ground on their trip, visiting Sausalito, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, Fisherman’s Wharf and the huge redwood trees in the Muir Woods. The girls also experienced a ride on a cable car, since no trip to San Francisco would be complete without one.
It was a great week in San Francisco for Troop 10406, and it was another reminder of all the places Girl Scouts can take them.
