Girl Scout Destinations are the ultimate adventure for individual girls ages 11 and older! With different trips every year, there’s always something amazing for you to experience.

Be sure to click on the “gstravel” logo to see important application dates. If you have your heart set on a particular trip, make sure to apply by November 1, 2015!

Here are three reasons why you should you apply for Girl Scout Destinations:

  1. DO SOMETHING YOU NEVER THOUGHT YOU WOULD DO. On Destinations trips, you get to try things you’ve always wanted to do—and do things you never imagined you would! There are so many different Destinations to explore that will offer the challenge you’ve been waiting for!                  GSports14_UT_-4157-Edit
  2. EXPERIENCE A NEW CULTURE.                                                                 Girl Scouts really ARE global. We love to get out there and connect with new people; try new food; and take in new sights, sounds, and stories.  Destinations trips also offer you a chance to use what you’ve been learning in school, too! You can immerse yourself in a new culture—and learn about yourself and your own culture in the process. camel
  3. MAKE NEW FRIENDS FROM NEAR AND FAR!                           You’ll arrive at the airport as girls from different states and countries, but you’ll end your trip as lifelong members of the Destinations Crew. Destinations trips are unique Girl Scout experiences because you travel with Girl Scouts from all over the country, and even with Girl Scouts from overseas. In short, the Destinations program is an awesome way to connect with your national and international Girl Scout sisters!            se;foe                                                                                                                                                                                           Once again, the deadline for the first round of applications is Nov. 1, 2015!

You don’t have to currently be a Girl Scout to take part in Destinations—you can become one when you apply! And if you have a friend who is interested in Destinations, tell her she, too, can register for Girl Scouts and apply for a trip!
