Every girl deserves a chance to see the world. Girl Scouts offers many different travel opportunities so girls can see new places, meet new people, and learn about different cultures and ideas. Whether exploring their own neighborhoods, their regions, their country, or the world, Girl Scouts are continually expanding their horizons.
Girl Scouts can travel with their troop, and they can join both council-level and nationally sponsored adventures.

River Valleys Travel
Local volunteers are working with Girl Scouts River Valleys to create travel adventures for local Girl Scouts. See our upcoming trips:
Belize: Wildlife Adventure
If you are a girl or troop who loves adventure, making new friends, and exploring other countries and cultures, this 2019 travel opportunity to the tropics of Belize is just for you! Join River Valleys as we hike through the jungle, snorkel in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean, tour the Lamanai ruins, visit a local school, and whiz through the treetops on a zip line. Get ready to travel #likeagirlscout!
