It's not too late to apply for a destination! Check online for the 2010 destinations accepting "late" applications. Some of the destinations will be accepting applications after the Feb. 16 date depending on whether the event is full or not. The website has been updated to reflect the destinations that are full. Destinations are great opportunities for Older Girls to gain confidence, develop leadership skills and are a unique learning experience. Please let your girls know about these great opportunities, you don't want them to miss out!

 

If these trips look fun to any girls in your troop, remind them they can use their Cookie Bucks on them. Their hard work during cookie sales can go towards the cost of the destination.   What a goal to set - selling cookies today, could allow you to explore the rain forest in Costa Rica tomorrow!
