Fully immerse yourself in the life, culture, and customs of India during Holi, the festival of color. Travel with Girl Scouts of Japan and USA Girl Scouts Overseas!
About the Trip
With our home base at the Sangam WAGGGS World Center in Pune, India, you’ll celebrate the Indian festival of color, Holi, like a local – through traditional customs as well as modern dance, fashion, and food. You also will discover the colorful city of Pune through visits to its diverse historical and cultural sights.
Join a group of Girl Scouts from around the United States, USA Girl
Scouts Overseas, and Girl Scouts of Japan for a unique opportunity to
learn about each other and the special part of the world we are
visiting. Together, we will explore the intersection of our cultures
and the culture of India. Through culture immersion, reflection, and
new relationships, you’ll leave Sangam with a new lens through which
to view the world and a new commitment to creating a world that is
more just and accepting of everyone.
