There’s nothing like a Guiding trip to enable girls to see the world – and themselves – in a whole new way. Girl Guides of Canada’s nationally-sponsored travel experiences offer girls the chance to increase their understanding of global issues, explore new cultures and communities, and develop a sense of belonging to the global sisterhood of Guiding.
