GSWPA's Coming Attractions
Girl Scouting offers girls cross-cultural opportunities for regional, national and international travel as well as resources in travel planning and progression. Girl Scouts in 6-12 grade who are interested in a Travel Pathway, can apply for specific destination travel trips through GSUSA or take a road trip with girls throughout our council. These once-in-a-lifetime day, weekend, week or longer adventures are made possible for all girls—thanks to the proceeds earned through participation in the MagNut and Girl Scout Cookie Sale Programs.
