These GSGWM trips are organized by internationally recognized tour company EF Tours, and chaperoned by GSGWM staff and volunteers. Any registered Girl Scout who is over the age of 14 at the time of the trip may register for these amazing trips. Adults may register through EF or apply to be in charge of a trip through council. Both individual girls and troops may register.
Three European capitals combine to provide countless incredible memories for your troop—from the hospitality of the Irish, to the sophistication of the English, to the romance of Parisians. Find out why Dublin has so many colorful doors, see where Shakespeare drew his early inspiration, and put your camera’s memory to the test with photos of the Eiffel Tower!

Dublin, London, Paris Chaperones:
Sheila Morris hails from Concord, NH and has been a Girl Scout for 24 years, 15 as a leader. She has served over 200 girls during her leadership years and is currently a leader in three troops. She is the Community Cookie Chair and the Volunteer Support Coordinator. She has said that "Scouts is my full time unpaid job where I get paid with girls' smiles, and get to see girls learning to become leaders, work in a group to make decisions, and experiencing new things!" She has three daughters (20, 18, & 16) all of whom are involved in scouting. She has traveled regularly with her troops and has been able to try things, learn, explore and see places because of Girl Scouts. In fact, she just went zip lining through the treetops in Honduras and snorkeling in Cozumel with her Ambassador troop while on their cruise. Sheila is outgoing and happy! She loves to read, go to the beach, and play with her three dogs.
Jackie Bruleigh, GSGWM Coordinator of Marketing, Social Media and Website
Jackie has been a Girl Scout locally for 18 years, serving as a girl member on the board of directors, and working as a Farnsworth camp counselor for 3 years before joining GSGWM full time as the New Media Coordinator. She holds a BA in History of Science, History of Medicine and a MPH in Social and Behavioral Science (with a focus on health in the media) from Yale University. This is Jackie’s first job after graduation, and she’s thrilled to be working to make Girl Scouting more accessible through the internet. Jackie lives in Boston, where she writes and performs comedy and tries (and fails) to keep her tea and book collections in check.
