If you haven’t spent your Dough yet, or if you’re pondering what to use your new cards for, here are some fun ideas that not only give girls the best bang for their buck – they’re life changing, too!

Join your sister scouts on the adventure of a lifetime! Spend 10 days exploring and experiencing the diversity of Costa Rica. Have fun ziplining and water rafting; participate in the local culture and soak in all that this rich land has to offer. Read about this adventure.
This trip is for any GSSGC high school-aged Girl Scout who is seeking to broaden their experiences and join other girls seeking to do the same.
