Did you know that almost 30 girls jetted off to Paris and London two years ago. A similar number of teen girls are headed to Costa Rica next summer to do an awesome service learning project in the rainforest. Girls and adults often ask me what’s next? What’s the 2018 trip? Well get ready to be super excited because the 2018 Girl Scouts So. AZ international trip is a GIRLS CHOICE trip!
This fall we will be promoting 4 trip choices for girls to learn about the options and get excited. Then, in the late fall, we’ll hold an electronic vote to determine the trip choice of our teen girls! More to come later on the actual voting process and eligibility to vote. In the meantime, let me introduce you to our trip options. All of these options are tours run by EF Tours for Girl Scouts- Trusted travel partner of GSUSA and Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona. *minimum number of girls (TBD) will be required in order to run the trip. All costs are estimated until the trip is booked and girls are registered. Girls must be Cadettes or older to travel. Other age restrictions may apply. Interested adults may apply to be chaperones, but if their daughter is traveling in the group, they will not be selected.
Come along with us and let’s start dreaming!
