This week in the Peace Corps: Celebrating a scout anniversary
Many Peace Corps Volunteers across the country have the opportunity to work with the Guías y Scouts, including the troop pictured above, which was formed one year ago.
Volunteer Xavier helped celebrate with them by participating in various scout activities including learning how to build a tent, build a fire, team building, and leadership games.
Coming up soon, these kids in Guías y Scout will get to experience their first camping event ever. For many of them, this will be the first time away from their parents and their communities.
The Peace Corps photo series in The Tico Times Costa Rica Changemakers section is sponsored by the Costa Rica USA Foundation for Cooperation (CRUSA), a proud financial supporter of Peace Corps Volunteer projects nationwide.

Volunteers’ last names and community names are withheld from these publications, per Peace Corps policy.
