Every girl everywhere deserves the chance to discover the world beyond her everyday scope and connect with others globally. Typically girl members of Girl Scouts- NC Coastal Pines participate in this type of travel through their troop. However, there is another opportunity for a teen in Girl Scouting to expand her personal experience through travel.
From Wyoming to China, there are dozens of opportunities in the coming year for Girl Scouts ages 11-17 to expand their horizons and meet other Girl Scouts from around the county. These opportunities are a part of a GSUSA program called destinations.
So what is a destination exactly? These are continental and international travel events sponsored and endorsed by GSUSA. The trips are divided into several categories: international, outdoors, science, people, apprenticeships and getaways. See here for a list of the 2014 destinations.
With so many choices, you have the opportunity to pick a destination that fits your interests and desires. No matter which destination you choose to apply, you will have the experience of a lifetime! But don’t just take our word for it, hear from other Girl Scouts about their travel experiences on GSUSA’s travel site for girls.
If you are interested in applying for a destinations opportunity or are interested in travel with Girl Scouts, contact Program Director Nephitearya Bailey.
Now, where would you like to explore?
