Girl Scouts Train for the Inca Trail

Adventure is out there!

Adventure is out there!

Troop 71106 of Fort Collins, Colorado, with the Girl Scouts of Colorado Council, is  hiking the 5-Day Inca Trail Trek.  A lot of their program is travel-oriented, and they sold over 12,000 boxes of cookies this year to help raise money for their trip to Peru.

They exemplify the Girl Scout value of service to the community, when last year they raised funds to donate a high adventure gift.  In 2013, they donated $10,000 for a zip line at camp, in memory of a former troop member, who died.

You can see their Inca Trail Trek on the AWR Interactive Map:
