Some of the most memorable moments in a Girl Scout's life happen while attending special events and taking trips. However, there are requirements and forms to complete before you can be on your way.
All trips require adherence to Safety-Wise and GSSA Policies and Procedures found in Volunteer Essentials, especially with regards to permission slips. Permission slips and health history forms must be completed and available to responsible parties for the duration of the trip. All the necessary forms can be found on the Forms and Resources page at www.girlscoutssa.org.
Troops planning any overnight trip must receive permission from Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama. The Overnight Trip/Camping Application is also available on our Forms and Resources page at www.girlscoutssa.org. This form must be completed and forwarded to Cheryl Miller at email@example.com two to four weeks (depending on the length of trip) prior for approval. Cheryl is also available to answer any questions you may have regarding troop trips.
Trips lasting three or more nights, (not including a federal holiday) require the troop to purchase additional GSUSA insurance from the council.
More information about planning and taking trips with your girls is available in Volunteer Essentials.
