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.

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.

From beginning to end, experience natural beauty and thrilling adventures beyond what you ever imagined. Registration is $95 per person.
