Are you a girl who is interested in:

Taking the Trip of a Lifetime?
If you answered yes to any of the above then you may be interested in joining girls from across the nation for Guatemala's Historical and Natural Treasures.
During this trip you will explore the diverse terrain of this tropical paradise on an adventure to Guatemala's colonial cities, picturesque lakes, and ancient Mayan ruins. Guatemala is a richly diverse cultural center situated in the heart of Central America. Guatemala is world renowned for its colonial cities, impressive Mayan Ruins, beautiful tropical forests, and indigenous peoples. You and thirteen other girls will venture to Pacaya Volcano National Park, hike the summit to learn about geology, and traverse the jungle-shrouded ruins at Tikal discovering the ancient and present day Maya. There is so much to experience in this historically rich country of Central America. This trip is chaperoned by two council staff members of Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina who are trained to work with high school girls. The trip is outfitted and organized by Holbrook Travel. A local tour guide will be with the group 24 hours a day once in Guatemala.
