Troop Activity Guide

Taking trips is one of the many ways troops can Discover, Connect, and Take Action. Traveling with your troop progresses with the girls, perhaps starting with a hike outside your meeting place and then progressing to overnight camping, to a visit to Boston or New York, and ultimately a long excursion to one of the four World Centers of Girl Scouting in India, Mexico, London, or Switzerland! This is your guide to getting there. PLEASE NOTE: This is a VERY large file and will take some time to download. Make sure to RIGHT CLICK on the link and “Save Link As” and save it to your computer.
