GSNEO Travel Groups

Absolutely love to travel?  Check out GSNEO travel groups!

Girl Scout Senior International Travel Group

Join a special group dedicated to international travel opportunities for older Girl Scouts. We’ve traveled the world for more than 20 years, with Girl Scouts!

We don’t want to take the place of your regular Girl Scout troop. We offer older girls and troops international travel opportunities for those who wouldn’t be able to do it on their own.

Getting you ready for the world!

We meet monthly, usually on Sunday afternoons or evenings. Come learn about the countries we’ll be visiting, how to pack, what to pack, to stay safe and healthy, about the currency and how to budget money. You’ll learn about cultural diversity, affinity and respect for other cultures and people. Our group consists of girls from all 18 counties that make up Northeast Ohio council. Make some new local and not so local friends!

Have fun while you learn and earn! Lots of money earning opportunities for girls and adults to work together to support trip costs. We hold car washes, spaghetti dinners, concession events, plant sales, sell cookies and more.

Who can join?

Any interested Girl Scouts, ages 11 – 17, from the Girl Scouts of North East Ohio council can join. Please note that Girl Scouts must be 14 years old prior to trip departure and/or entering 9th grade in September of the trip year to travel internationally. However, money earning opportunities are available for all girls wishing to travel on future trips.

Adults are welcome to join our tour on a space available basis. You will not be responsible for supervising Girl Scouts.

Meetings

Brook Park Community Church, 16845 Holland Road, Brook Park, OH 44142

We meet the third Sunday of the month. 4 – 5 p.m. next trip; 5 – 6 p.m. fundraising, 6 – 7 p.m. future trip
