New Travel Form: Non-Commercial Rental Properties

Early last fall, GSUSA shared a guideline that did not permit Girl Scouts to use AirBNBs, VRBOs and other non-commercial rental/vacation property due to safety and insurance risks. Many volunteers and parents were concerned that this change put undue financial stress and pressure on girls and their opportunities to travel and see the world. We heard you! After careful research of potential risks, we have created this checklist for girls and volunteers to use prior to making a reservation and then again once troops/families arrive at their destination.

Volunteer-Led Girl Scout Trips

Looking for more travel options? Volunteer-led trips are geared towards individual girls and girls wanting to travel outside of their own troop. Planning for these trips is girl-led, so girls can help design their dream travel experience.
