Troops or groups can travel together on a number of trips that become progressively more challenging. Some examples:
- Field Trips—discovery trips around the neighborhood, short hikes in local parks, or visits to zoos or museums. These trips get everyone accustomed to walking, staying together, and listening.
- Basic Trips—go a little farther than field trips, or last a little longer. Popular trips include visits to a local hostel for a cultural food experience, a day trip to Michigan’s Adventure, or an overnight in a museum. These trips often overlap with camping trips, whether in cabins or tents.
- Advanced Domestic Trips—last several nights or more, and cover more terrain. A trip to Yosemite, to San Francisco, or a trip to Washington, D.C., are typical examples.
- International Trips—visits to a World Centre, exploring art in Paris, or participating in a jamboree in Australia are among the many options available to well-traveled troops.
- Getaways—Getaways are short travel programs designed specifically for Girl Scout troops! New Getaways are posted throughout the year, so be sure to check them out periodically.
