Traveling is an exciting way to teach girls new skills and introduce them to new experiences. A Girl Scout trip is defined as any time a group has an activity at a location other than the regularly scheduled meeting place. All Girls will need a Parent Permission and Health form filled out. Before traveling with girls, ensure that you have trained adults in place for the following roles:
Troop Trip Organizer
Assists girls in planning, budgeting, and organizing short outings, overnights, or longer trips. Troop Trip application must be submitted to your Volunteer Support Coordinator 6-18 months in advance.
Licensed Troop Camper
Assists girls in planning, budgeting and preparing for a troop camping experience where girls will cook and/or sleep outdoors. Training for this role is required.
Drives girls and adults on field trips, outings and trips and ensures the proper safety procedures are all followed while transporting girls.
Provides first aid as needed. Must have a current First Aid/CPR certification; training for this role is required.
