Every girl deserves a chance to see the world. Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma is going to Los Angeles, California and Hawaii in July 2020. What will we do while on this trip? You get to help decide. The travel group meets together to plan out all the fun adventures!

Girls must be 13 years old by June 1, 2020 to attend this trip. 

Girls must apply for the trip and be accepted. When you click the register button it will take you to the girl application. Girls must provide names and email addresses for two non-relative references during the application process. Girls will be emailed with acceptance or denial for the trip. Once accepted you will be sent a link to register for the trip and pay your deposit. 

Cost of the trip is approximately $2000 with a $100 non-refundable deposit. Price may increase depending on flight pricing and what activities girls choose to do. Final price and payment schedule will be decided by September 1, 2019. After paying the initial deposit girls can use Cookie Credit to pay the remainder of the fee. The travel group also plans and participates in extra money-earning projects. Girls may also apply for a travel scholarship through council. 
 

Deposits are non-refundable. There are no refunds after the registration deadline.

FAQs about council-sponsored trips:

What’s included in the program fee? Transportation costs, all meals, overnight accommodations, entrance fees to all attractions, activities, patches, Girl Scout insurance, and group t-shirt.

Why is travel important for girls? Girls will gain independence and learn important leadership skills on the trips. Girls will learn to navigate a new city they are visiting using public transportation and using map skills. They will have to use money management as they budget for the activities we plan. Manners and etiquette are taught and fun fancy nights out. If going aboard girls may even learn a new language. These are just some of the independent skills girls will be taking away from council trips. 

How do I know my Girl Scout will be safe? Safety of girls is always our number one priority. Although the girls are planning the trips, council staff will make sure that the activities are safe and appropriate. We will not go to places which are not safe. 

Can I attend the trip with my daughter? Council trips are designed to be a girl-based trip, which means we want to take as many girls as possible on a trip with the minimum number of adults needed. These trips are for girls, not adults. You can apply to chaperone a trip but we do not guarantee chaperone spots. Only special circumstances will allow chaperones to attend a trip with their daughters but that is at the council’s discretion.

What if my Girl Scout doesn’t know anyone on the trip? That’s ok! The girls are from all over eastern Oklahoma so they will have that in common. She will be able to make new friends with girls her own age. We will have planning meetings and in-person get-togethers as a group before the trip as a chance to get to know one another. 

Do you worry about discipline on these trips? Both girls and parents will be signing a behavior contract before leaving for the trip. If the girl does not adhere to the contract she will be asked to leave the trip at the expense of the girl and her family.
