To aid you in your travel planning for international trips or extended domestic trips of three
nights or longer, Girl Scouts of Rolling Hills Council offers the following information
packets. These documents are relatively large, so you will need to exercise patience in downloading the files.
The Extended Trip Packet (Adobe Acrobat file - 208K) has a checklist/timeline
with time frames for both domestic and international trips.
The International Supplement (Adobe Acrobat file - 215K) is taken from a document
produced by GSUSA and includes useful details regarding international travel, from assessing
girl readiness to finding youth hostels. It also includes a resource section listing many
publications for further study.
The World Centers Packet (Adobe Acrobat file - 278K)
is also taken from a GSUSA document and has information pertaining exclusively to world centers
and WAGGGS Affiliated Organizations.
The three packets are to be used as follows:
Domestic trips of three nights or longer - use the
Extended Trip Packet only
International Trip - Extended Trip Packet and
the International Supplement together. Use only the
health forms in the International Supplement (they are required), rather than the health forms
found in the Extended Trip Packet. There is a section on required travel documents (visas,
passports, etc.) that should be used to augment the forms and documents mentioned in the
Extended Trip Packet.
World Center or WAGGGS Affiliated Organization visit - use the
Extended Trip Packet,
International Supplement and
World Centers Packet. The first two packets are used
as you would for any international trip. There are only a few WAGGGS/World Center forms in the
World Centers packet and they are to be used in addition to those contained in the other
packets. The Permission to Travel with Minors form is found in both the International
Supplement and the World Centers packet. You may use whichever wording better suits your
We hope, by dividing the information into three separate packets, it will eliminate the need to
sift through information that does not pertain to your trip. It is advisable that the leaders
read through all of the information first to become familiar with the packets, then share them
with the girls.
