GSCO Visits Costa Rica in 2021

Submitted by Jody Clair

We have had to cancel the 2021 Orlando trip at this time. However, we are still taking registrations for Costa Rica 2021, as it had been postponed and has new dates for June! I have plenty of space for this amazing trip. See below for the link to the flier for itinerary information and cost. I do NOT have adult spaces at this time unless there is a Girl Scout with a disability who needs additional care. *Please note that this is a very physical trip– flying, walking, ziplines, rafting, and more!

Girl Scouts must be in fifth-twelfth grade this school year to be eligible. If you have questions about what the girls will do on the trip, money, or anything else, please email me. Also, please email me BEFORE submitting a deposit so I can email you an application for the girl to fill out.

Yes! Girls can apply for Cookie Credit reimbursement, AFTER the balance is paid in full and we can print a receipt for reimbursement. I can guide you through this if needed.

If your Girl Scout will be entering sixth – twelfth grade (or graduating) in June of 2021, then they can qualify to attend this trip! I am the main leader for this trip and Ms. Lauren from our troop is my second chaperone. If you have questions, please email Girlscoutjody@gmail.com.

  • This is the trip we were going on in 2020, but needed to change based on COVID-19.

Finally, I can offer troops a Florida 2021 trip! All details (I hope, lol) can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/15oGp0JdcageoyCtu7UIHk8rEIkUtfclFg97CJYQUKkc/edit?usp=sharing  Please make sure to read it through and save the date. Deposits can be made starting now. I know it seems sooo far away, but this gives us time to allow Girl Scouts to earn money and also the more that attend, the cost gets lower. Girls must be entering sixth grade at travel time and girls through 12th grade graduates are eligible. Join us for some fun in the sun!

Hello,

My name is Serenity C. and I am 15-years-old. My troop has a question for you…Is your troop or your Girl Scout interested in traveling and will be age 11 by July of 2021? Well, we have an opportunity of a lifetime awaiting for you if the answer to any of these questions is yes 😉 My mom is working with EF Tours to host an all-inclusive ten day trip to Costa Rica in July of 2021. What makes this program special? Delve into an ecological paradise, walk amid lush rainforests and beneath towering volcanoes in enchanting Costa Rica. Transport your troop deep into a misty cloud forest, get up close to the world’s most magnificent plant and animal habitats, and see sensational waterfalls and hot springs. From beginning to end, experience natural beauty and thrilling adventures beyond what you ever imagined. Registration is $95 per person. Multiple payment options are available and best of all is you can sell Girl Scout Cookies this year and next year to help earn money for the trip 😉 Use this link to see the full itinerary and all the amazing details of this adventure: https://girltrips.eftours.com/2218043ye
