Advice for a successful trip
Travel plans are often arranged several months in advance and
contingencies must be planned ahead of time for re-scheduling,
cancelling, or pivoting to a virtual activity. For all planned trips,
create a timeline and identify a final date when decisions must be
made about whether or not to move forward with the planned trip, based
primarily on the safety of our girls, along with financial commitment
deadlines and/or other factors.
Consider purchasing travel insurance and read all fine print and
ensure COVID or pandemic related cancellation is covered; it is often
excluded. Decisions about whether or not to approve troop travel or
proceed with planned council-organized travel will be based on all
current health and safety guidance available in our jurisdiction as
well as for the destination jurisdiction to ensure the safety of girls.
