Destinations for summer 2020 and 2021 are now open!
Girl Scout Destinations are the ultimate adventures for individual Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador girls! With different trips every year, there’s something for everyone. Pack your bags full of life-changing experiences and make friends from all over the country as you travel with Girl Scouts from different states.
Destinations require an application and reference form. There are two application rounds:
- Round 1 Applications/References due December 1
- Round 2 Applications/References due February 15
Adventure Is Out There
One parent of twin Girl Scouts that went to a horseback riding camp said of the application process, “When they told people that they were accepted into the camp, they were certain to include an explanation of the application process. There was something about applying and being accepted that was quite exciting for them.”
Joining one of these trips takes an independent spirit and for girls that “love being on their own,” as one parent put it.
Emily Jones, Girl Scout Senior, says of her trip to the Channel Islands: “Going on the Channel Islands Destinations trip has inspired me to travel the world and explore what is out there for me to see. I want to see the world, not just from photos, but in person.”
“[My experiences here] inspired me to want to find a profession that helps people in poverty or those experiencing violence,” stated Molly Sheridan, Girl Scout Ambassador, who traveled on a Destination to India in summer 2019.
“My journey made me see the world differently,” said Aubri Matthews, Girl Scout Cadette, of her Destinations trip to Australia and New Zealand.
Girl Scout Senior, Danielle Knudson, says, “After my Destinations trip, I want to try new things that might scare me. I want to find new activities to challenge myself.”
