Nationally and Internationally hosted Destinations

Destinations are nationally and internationally hosted travel opportunities for girls.  Trips can take girls kayaking off the coast of Costa Rica, feeding pandas in Hong Kong, hiking into the Grand Canyon, exploring the Galapagos Islands, and many other adventures!  Destination opportunities are announced each year on the Girl Scouts of the USA website in September or October.  Early registration deadline is before Thanksgiving each year, but enrollment may be extended on many trips until spring, if spaces are still available.    Follow this link to see what adventures are awaiting you!

 

The Travel Committee

Many of the travel opportunities currently offered by Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas are planned and coordinated by volunteers on the council's Travel Pathway Committee.  Members of this committee oversee that travel opportunities meet safety guidelines, incorporate the Girl Leadership Experience, represent a progression of travel experience, and introduce girls to new cultures and experiences. Committee members are also asked to use their travel experience as chaperones for travel opportunities.

Series Pathway

Category: Pathways
Written by Hits: 961

The Series Pathway offers activities for the same group of participating girls, scheduled over six to eight weeks, relating to a specific theme or purpose. Series are developed with the intent that each registered participant attend all sessions scheduled throughout the course of the offering, because sessions are designed so that each day builds towards the next and culminates upon the delivery of the last session activity.


Series are thematic in nature and developed to support the council's program initiatives in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), healthy living, financial literacy, environmental awareness, as well as Girl Scout signature programs such as leadership journeys, and Uniquely Me!  The Be a Friend First (BFF) series equips middle school girls with the knowledge and power to prevent, recognize, and address bullying among their peers.

 

All event programs are based on the following standards:

•  Be mission-driven to develop girls of courage, character, and confidence

•  Align to the New Girl Scout Leadership Experience 

•  Adhere to all local and national safety standards

•  Be relevant and accessible to all populations

•  Provide opportunities for continuous involvement

•  Are developed and facilitated by volunteers in partnership with council professional staff

•  Provide consistent learning opportunities for both girls and adults

What does camp do for girls?

Camp programs encourage girls to develop independence, self-reliance, outdoor living skills, problem solving, and community living skills.  In an outdoor environment, under the supervision of supportive adults, girls take responsibility for their daily tasks, ranging from keeping a clean living area to preparing dinner in the outdoors.  Camp programs build girls' self-confidence and teach them to overcome challenges.

Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas offers day-only, one-night, weekend, and resident camp programs so that girls use progression to build their comfort with camping.  

Look for day, weekend, and week-long camp opportunities in the In Motion Program Guide.

 

Where do we camp?

Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas has two beautiful camps, Camp Bayview near Los Fresnos, and Camp Green Hill near Mathis.  As girls develop their camping skills, they can explore other camp locations such as state parks, independent camp sites, national parks, and other approved locations.
