Passport to Travel
Passport to Troop Travel
Required for: One registered and screened adult volunteer per troop taking a troop/group on an extended trip lasting 3 nights or longer. The Passport to Troop Travel course must be completed every (5) years.
There are a variety of ways that a Girl Scout can participate in travel. She can plan a trip with her troop, she can travel with a group of Girl Scouts that have come together specifically to travel, or she can participate in Destinations, national or international trips set up by GSUSA for individual girls. Whatever avenue she chooses to explore it is the Travel Consultant’s job to guide her through the process. This course will prepare you for this position.
Remember every troop/group must have a trained Travel Consultant who has completed the Passport to Troop Travel course before planning an extended trip.
Passport to Troop Travel is a (face to face) 3 hour session. Course topics include program implementation, how to partner with girls, setting realistic timelines, budgeting and money earning, trip preparation, and information on the Global-Local Connection. Preregistration is required!
