Dreaming of Future Travels? Plan with GCNWI!

Even though travel might not be at the top of your list right now, dreaming and planning ahead should be! There are multiple fun ways that you can travel as a Girl Scout, including traveling with your troop, going on a Destination, or joining a council-sponsored trip.

Look ahead at our council-sponsored offerings!

These trips are planned for 2021 and 2022, and are subject to change in consideration of COVID-19 precautionary measures. Please review and stay updated with our COVID-19 guidelines.

Get Ready for Fun in 2021!
