Troop Trips

Short Troop Trips:

Travel that is a one to three night stay and/or not on a Girl Scouts of Alaska property. Applications for short trips are due one month prior for in-council travel, and two months prior for out-of-council travel. Short trip applications must be approved before girls proceed with further planning. Registered Girl Scouts (girls and adults) are automatically covered by Girl Scout insurance for two nights or less. You will be asked to provide a list of all registered and non-registered participants, adults with appropriate certifications, and to review the safety checkpoints for your trip/activities.

Extended troop trips:

Travel lasting three or more nights, as well as any trips involving special equipment and/or activities with a “high risk”. Applications for extended trips are due four months prior to regional travel, six months prior to national travel (out-of-council), or two years for international travel. Extended trip applications must be approved before girls proceed with further planning. You will be asked to provide a list of all registered and non-registered participants, adults with appropriate certifications, and to review the safety checkpoints for your trip/activities. Troops will need to purchase additional insurance (plans differ depending on location and activities) for every participant, both registered and non-registered Girl Scouts. Troops planning and extended trip may apply for Troop Trip Cookie Credits (see Troop Trip Cookie Credit Application for more details).
