Arvada Girl Scout travels to Costa Rica

Costa Rica

Arvada Girl Scout Charlotte B. traveled to Costa Rica for an unforgettable adventure! She was able to make the trip after receiving the “Look Wider” International Travel Scholarship. After returning home, Charlotte shared her memories with her Girl Scout sisters:

“During the trip when we were at the beach, we had the opportunity to help and pick up the trash. When we were picking up the trash on the last day, we were able to see the sick sea turtles come to land to either die or lay their eggs when the other turtles weren’t there, so they wouldn’t make the others sick. That showed me how most of us didn’t really think about the sick turtles and what would happen to them. Going sure opened my eyes to what happens down there and how that can effect the community.”


The “Look Wider” International Travel Scholarships are made possible by the Rae Ann and Richard Dougherty Look Wider International Travel Fund Endowment at Rose Community Foundation. Thanks to this generous commitment, Girl Scouts of Colorado will award scholarships to girls every year.
