GCP has some exciting events in store for this year. Check back for our soon to be installed Speaker Series. We'll let you know the date the boys will give a slide-show presentation about their trip.

Trip Description:

The participants traveled to the Chilean Patagonia and did home stays with local teens from the town of Puerto Natales. The whole group traveled to Torres del Paine National Park. In the park they participated in a Huemul Census, rehabilitated trails, explored the park. Then spent time on a working Patagonian sheep and cattle ranch for two nights.
