Specialty Courses

Are the girls in your troop/group ready to hit the road? Travel is one of the reasons that girls stay in Girl Scouting. Take one of the two travel courses to prepare yourself and the girls for a fabulous trip and memorable experience.

Statue of LibertySee the Country

This course allows girls and their advisors to explore beyond their local region and throughout the United States. This fun-filled, hands-on course will provide Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors, Ambassadors, and their advisors with resources to guide girls through the trip planning process using Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s policies, guidelines, forms, and paperwork. Progressive trip planning is key to the overall travel experience and helps prepare girls and adults for traveling around the United States as they become ready.
GSOFCT encourages Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors to complete this training two years prior to their desired trip timeline. This course involves in-depth work on planning, budgeting, accommodations, and travel.

Prerequisite: Out and About*
Course length: 90 minutes

passportSee the World

This course is designed for those who are planning to travel beyond the United States' borders. The course will look at the essentials of traveling together through airports, getting passports, and what forms are needed with GSOFCT, GSUSA, and with World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. Participants will engage in activities that will help them plan for their trip - from budgeting of time and money, to considering meals, transportation, and accommodations. To ensure for realistic timelines, this course is best completed three years prior to the intended travel dates. GSOFCT encourages Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors to complete this training.

Prerequisite: Out and About*
Course length: 90 minutes

*Please Note: We strongly encourage Girl Scout Leaders/Advisors or other approved troop/group adults to complete Out and About training prior to participating in a See the Country or See the World course. Out and About training must be completed by at least one approved volunteer traveling with their girls on a trip.

Additional trainings can be scheduled for individual troops/groups. Please contact the Volunteer Service Department at for more information.
