Costa Rica: Exploring The Rainforest!

The Costa Rica crew is having an absolute blast in the rainforest! In the few short days they’ve been there, they have already gone ziplining, rappelling, and tree climbing. They’ve also started their service project and we can’t wait to see what their hard work accomplishes. Below is the groups handwritten blog post, the activities are typed out below 🙂
