Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel on one of those cool trips sponsored by Girl Guides of Canada? Well, this year, there are more trips on offer than ever before – four International and three Canadian opportunities! Not to mention the two trips being sponsored by our very own Nova Scotia Council. Check out the Fact Sheets about these trips.

Last year, Dartmouth Shore Area had more successful applicants for Nationally sponsored trips than the rest of the provinces combined! We’ve got a strong history of travel and lots of members who can help you to apply and to prepare for your trip if you’re accepted.

Interested in learning more for yourself or your unit’s girls?

Come to the DSA Travel Briefing on Monday, October 7th to learn more! It will be held in the Community Room of the Tacoma Drive Sobey’s at 7 pm. The details of each of the trips on offer this year will be presented, along with an explanation of the application process and tips on how to apply!

Hope to see you there!

Costa Rica Adventure 2012 – Congratulations to Amanda Clack of Shubie District for being selected for the Nationally-sponsored trip to Costa Rica. Amanda says:

I want to take this opportunity to thank you and the Area council for your financial support for my participation in Costa Rica Adventure 2012, as well as for the generous donation of crests. I had a wonderful time and it was the opportunity of a lifetime. I really enjoyed the service projects we did because they were challenging but fun, and the feeling of accomplishment when we were done was amazing. I really loved the Santa Elena community and its people. Everyone was so nice and welcoming to us, and I think more groups should have the opportunity to go there.

I have put together a Powerpoint presentation about my trip, and I would like to offer to deliver it to any Area units that would be interested. Hopefully this will help to get more girls interested in Nationally sponsored trips, so they might get to have an amazing  experience just like mine. I am attaching a few pictures from my trip, one of me in the cloud forest, one of me with a waterfall, and one with my group.

Thanks again, Amanda Clack.
