The Four World Centers
Groups can make arrangement to attend sessions or stay at the four world centers run by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). If traveling to any of the four WAGGGS world centers, groups must make their own arrangements through the world center directly, and must have council approval before doing so. For additional information, go to each world center’s website:
