4-H Costa Rica 2018 Spring Break Trip

Join 4-H Members from across the state on a fully supported trip through EF Tours!  

The registration deadline of Thursday, March 23rd, 2017 is fast approaching…

Costa Rica MapThis trip is scheduled for Spring Break of 2018, is designed as a youth trip, however parents are welcome to participate.  Youth need to be 9th through 12th grade at the time of travel. EF Tours has a wide range of payment options and are willing to customize plans for individual needs, so there is plenty of time for members and families to get the funding together. Youth can also set up their own EF Tour donation page for family and friends to donate instead of giving gifts throughout the year. Enrollment can be done with just a $95.00 dollar down payment.

The program is designed as an introduction to “Service Learning Travel,” with a mix of service and tourism. Our 9 day itinerary has a good mix of service in the mangrove and protected areas as well as kayaking on Lake Arenal, visiting the La Fortuna Waterfall and a Zip-line Canopy Tour. Participants do not need to be fluent in Spanish, but the trip may be of interest for members that are learning Spanish. This tour also allows participants to receive free high school credit and low cost college credit.

All accommodations are in standard hotel style establishments. Youth are housed with 3 other youth participants. Adults are housed in pairs, thus the higher cost of the adult trip.

 All outbound and return travel will be from Portland International Airport. EF Tours have reserved 2 days on either side of the selected travel dates to allow for flexibility in booking the lowest fares. So, youth need to be prepared to travel early and stay late. Airfare is booked about 60 days from departure.

 The current tour cost is $2855.00 for youth and $3555.00 for adults.  With a monthly payment plan set up, the payment of $230.00 for members and $272.00 for adults.
