Details of the sweepstakes include:

- Winner receives: A Costa Rica Service Adventure gives one lucky teenager a three-week trip, beginning in the capital of Costa Rica, San Jose. The winner will learn Spanish there, then head off to paddle the rapids of the Pacuare River and zip line through the rainforest canopy. After ‘hanging’ with the monkeys on zip lines, one lucky teenager will get the opportunity to teach English to village children, work with a non-profit organization to preserve near-extinct sea turtles, perform community service to rural villages and end the trip surfing the Pacific Coast.
“Adventures Cross-Country (ARCC) was a dream I had over 28 years ago and I am so proud of what it has become today. We want to see our teens gain leadership skills, experience personal growth & self-reliance, and contribute to communities in need – all the while having the summer of a lifetime! This contest is another way for us to provide teens an opportunity to live that dream,” commented Scott Von Eschen, founder of Adventures Cross-Country.
Past teens who have participated in the Costa Rica Service Adventure comment:
“The Costa Rica Service Two Week trip is a whirlwind of excitement and new experiences. Nothing can prepare you for the amount of fun you will have or the new things you will experience. Most of all, this trip will help you learn more about yourself and the type of person you want to be.”
— Sarah G., ARCC Student
“In only 3 weeks, ARCC has taught me more about myself and others than I ever imagined possible. I will never forget the things I learned, the things I saw, the people I met, and the experiences I had on this trip. Thank you!” - Emily L., ARCC Student
