Don't forget to check out GSUSA's excellent trip planning resources as well! (See below.)
A field trip is a trip that takes place outside of your normal troop meeting time or place, but occurs in your town or city. It does not include overnights.
Field Trips At A Glance: A basic overview on what to expect and how to prepare, including girl-to-adult safety ratios.
Let’s Go! Field Trip: Ideas on how to help
girls drive the planning of your field trip. (Also located in
the Resources tab of the Volunteer Toolkit.)
Ready to get going? We no longer require council approval before a field trip. However, we do ask that you complete the Field Trip Notification Form a week before your trip. If an activity is high-risk, our Troop Support team will reach out for more information.
