About the Trip

Do you love animals? Come to sunny central Florida to explore career opportunities in marine science, veterinary science, and zoology – all while doing a service project and having lots of fun!

This animal career Destination will include hands-on activities with aquariums, equestrian centers, theme parks, and more. Girls will get to travel across multiple counties during this trip, staying at multiple local Girl Scout camps. In addition to our hands-on work with animals, we will visit a local college to learn about studying animals, participate in a service project, and go tubing down a local river.

Jumpstart your career with animals as you make friends from across the country!
