Costa Rica destination for students, parents

This trip is open to all North Okanagan Shuswap and Vernon School District students currently in Grades 9 through 12.

Pleasant Valley Secondary School is planning its first trip to Costa Rica.

This trip is open to all North Okanagan Shuswap and Vernon School District students currently in Grades 9 through 12.

“Normally the spring break trip has been to Europe but the costs are very high,” said organizer Paul Britton, trades and student transition coordinator at PVSS.

“The cost of this trip is $2,000 less than any trip to Europe and all meals are included.”

The trip will again be through EF Tours, which has been around for more than 40 years.

By signing up early parents/students can make monthly payments to ease the cost.

Any parent/student may go on the website at www.eftours.ca and view the Costa Rica: A Touch of The Tropics tour which is # 1695492TU.

“This is an amazing trip which includes horseback riding on the beach, whitewater rafting, ziplining through the rain forests, volcano tours, crocodile river tours and working with students at a rural school,” said Britton.

“We encourage any students from Vernon, Salmon Arm, Enderby and Armstrong, as well as any parents that want to experience Costa Rica, to take advantage of this amazing opportunity.”

This trip will be limited to 24 students and there are six registered already.

Any interested parents/students should contact Britton at PVSS (250-546-3114 ext. 206)
