Colonial Coast Scouts Headed to the South Pacific!

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.
