For the past six years, Shannon Forest has sent students from the senior class to Costa Rica on a mission trip as part of our 12th Grade REACH Program.  Over 100 students have participated in this incredible experience, and you can too!  If you travel to Costa Rica, you will visit two different communities – the mountain village of Cot where you will build relationships with local families and high schoolers, and the slum community of La Cuenca.  At La Cuenca you will serve alongside Hugo, a local missionary who ministers to the people of La Cuenca through an organization called Sonrisas con Esperanza (Smiles with Hope).  Your experiences in both places, as well as the welcoming hospitality of your host families and the joy found in even the most impoverished homes, will leave you forever changed.

Check out this awesome video from last year’s trip!
