Camping Across Europe

Story by Deidre Denkins

Junior Molly Imboden and her Girl Scouts Troop 1771 are taking a 15-day trip to Europe this summer starting on June 8. They will be traveling to Adelboden, Florence, London, Lucerne, Paris and Rome.

Most of their time will be spent touring monuments and other popular attractions like the London Eye, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Vatican and the Trevi Fountain.

“I’m mostly excited to see Florence and visit the Louvre,” Imboden said. “I think it will be really interesting and beautiful.”

The Girl Scouts have been raising money to go to Europe for about three years by selling cookies and doing activities with younger scouts. According to Imboden, her troop does not go on trips this big on a normal basis.

“I’m really excited about this trip,” Imboden said. “We’ve been planning it for a while now, so it’s getting surreal that there’s less than two months until we leave.”

Girl Scout Daylin Diamond is also going on the trip to Europe. She says that since the troop is going to various cities, they will be taking walking tours and busses for the majority of the time. They will also take a train to Switzerland that tunnels underwater.

“I’m so terrified to go through the underwater tunnel on the train because I get claustrophobic very easily,” Diamond said.

Scout member Cora Harms says that her parents are anxious about the scouts’ trip to Europe without them. Especially because Harms will be taking a flight home without her troop while they go on an extended trip to Rome.

“My parents are really excited for us because we have been working hard for this,” Harms said. “But we are going on a trip overseas with a big group of people and we don’t know everyone yet, so I think they’re also kind of worried too.”

Multiple Girl Scout troops are going to Europe at the same time and will take the same flight. There is a tour schedule specifically for the Girl Scouts that they are all following.

“It will be cool to see other Girl Scout members from other troops on the trip,” Harms said.

Harms believes it will be an eventful trip and fun way to end her Girl Scout experience.

“I feel like this is going to be the best part of my summer,” Harms said. “This is such a good way to have fun with my friends before I have to go back home and get ready for things like college and senior year.”
