The GSC Alumnae fosters lifelong Girl Scout connections by providing opportunity for involvement, supporting and promoting the work of Girl Scouts of Citrus and inspiring generations of girls who change the world.
The Girl Scouts of Citrus are happy to announce and exclusive travel opportunity for their Alumnae members! During this Journey we will support two food packing event partners (pack melas in the city) as we explore, tour and enjoy the beautiful sights of our Nation’s Capital. This trip is filled with fun, adventure, and meaningful service to the communities where we travel. Your time in DC is customized, and every travel detail is arranged in advance!
Experience our nation’s capitol as you never have before! Remember that YOU will participate in creating the itinerary that best suits your organization or group. Based on the group’s interests we will customize a Journey to include the traditional tour sites such as the Capitol Building, the Pentagon, the Jefferson Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial and newer attractions such as Newseum!
On each DC Journey, we create a moment for your group. We will combine traditional touring with other purposeful activities to cultivate a Journey to remember.
We engage teams in meaningful service projects easily and swiftly. For example, after your group enjoys time at the Capital Building tour, we may bring them nearby to a food packing event where they will pack a quick thousand or two of meals, and learn about the issues of hunger and homelessness that our Capital (among many other cities) face. Then, they will move along to another section of the city and continue their time in DC.
Some of the sites that may be included in your customized itinerary are:
Washington Monument, World War II Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, Korean War Memorial, the White House, Iwo Jima Memorial and Dr. Luther King, Jr. Memorial.

It’s here, right where we live. It affects every single neighborhood in our region. It impacts people of every age, race, religion, and ethnicity. Hunger robs children of a chance to learn, undermines health, and makes getting and holding good jobs hard.
The Capital Area Food Bank is the largest organization in the Washington metro area working to solve hunger and its companion problems: chronic undernutrition, heart disease, and obesity. By partnering with 444 community organizations in DC, MD, and VA, as well as delivering food directly into hard to reach areas, the CAFB is helping 540,000 people each year get access to good, healthy food. That’s 12% of our region’s mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, and grandparents.
SOME (So Others Might Eat) is an interfaith, community-based organization that exists to help the poor and homeless of our nation’s capital. We meet the immediate daily needs of the people we serve with food, clothing, and health care. We help break the cycle of homelessness by offering services, such as affordable housing, job training, addiction treatment, and counseling, to the poor, the elderly and individuals with mental illness. Each day, SOME is restoring hope and dignity one person at a time. We invite you to join us.
On this trip we will be staying at a hotel near the Mall and in walking distance to may of the sites! We will also have bus tours on several days.
