Virginia's WAVY TV 10 reports that Nearly 60 Girl Scouts from the area will be heading to the land down under. The trip to Australia and New Zealand is a special pathway opportunity sponsored by the Girl Scout Council of Colonial Coast.
The travel pathway offers leadership opportunities and cross-cultural understanding through council-sponsored and nationally-sponsored trips.
According to a press release, the trip to Australia and New Zealand has been a two-year plan in the making. The girls held a variety of fundraisers including the traditional cookie and fall product sales, car washes, and gift-wrapping events.
The girls will start their adventure in New Zealand. After their four-day stay, they will travel to Sydney, Australia.
