Girls Scouts of Colorado prepares for the 2013 trip to London, Paris and Lucerne


Only one more year to go and Girl Scouts of Colorado will be taking girls and their leaders on a trip to remember. This past weekend I was fortunate to travel to Paris, France to prepare for our 10 day adventure with EF Tours in 2013. Along the way I learned many valuable lessons about leading these girls through the streets and metro of Paris. I cannot wait to share this trip with all those who sign up to go. It will truly be remarkable, and you will learn new languages, discover ancient and magnificent sites and artwork as well as exploring the culture and cuisine of three countries.

On this preparation tour we were able to visit the Louvre and look at thousands of famous art works, stroll the streets of Montmartre and shop in the Latin Quarter, taste magnificent pastries, practice some French, gaze at the famous Eiffel tower, visit the palace of Versailles which was home to Marie Antoinette, and make some new Girl Scouts friends.

This 10-11 day trip throughout Europe includes visits to TWO Girl Scouts World Centers: Pax Lodge and Our Chalet. You will be able to climb the Eiffel Tower, visit historical cathedrals, see Big Ben, the Louvre and so much more!

  1. Hello!
    We went on the same tour this July that you will be going on next year. Our tour group was mainly comprised of several of our Girl Scouts, leaders & parents from our council – Girl Scouts of Northeast Kansas & Northwest Missouri. A good time was had by all that went. It was a trip of a lifetime & many cherished memories were made during those 10 days.

    Enjoy your journey!
