Transcript of Girl Scout Destinations
Who are destinations for?
destinations are national and international travel opportunities offered through Girl Scouts. These trips frequently include a chance for you to give back to the local community you're visiting through a service project.
What are destinations?
Destinations are usually scheduled between June and August each year, however some trips, like dog sledding, may be offered in the winter.
When are these trips offered?
Girl Scout destinations offers a wide variety of locations for you to visit. Go surfing in Costa Rica, film a movie in Hollywood, hike the Inca trail in Peru, kayak pack in Washington state, photograph wildlife in Wyoming, blast off at Space Camp or explore Iceland, India or Ireland.

July 22- 31, 2015
Make friends from across the country and around the world as you discover one of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) world centers. Enjoy a cultural program of activities and workshops based on the annual WAGGGS themes and initiatives, and see the sights in Cuernavaca, “the City of Eternal Spring,” with 13 Girl Scout sisters. During eight nights at Our Cabana, balance your time among songs, games, traditional Mexican crafts, campfires, a service project for the local community, and Girl Scout traditions and celebrations in five acres of lush, tropical gardens. The world center, located near Mexico City, has welcomed thousands of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides in the nearly 60 years since it opened. Pass through the impressive blue Chief’s Door, enjoy the grounds, and spend some time by the pool or on the tennis and volleyball courts. Explore the culture and history of Mexico!
