The Garden Valley School District has established the travel club that allows students to travel to cities, countries, and continents to learn about other cultures, economic systems, and governments. 

Each member of the club is responsible for raising money to cover the cost of a tour. The primary source of income for these young people is through fundraising, sponsorship, and donations. Recently we have sold cookie dough, wreaths, held bake sales, chili feeds, and have sold snacks during concessions at middle school and high school basketball and volleyball games. We would like to thank all those who have supported us in our endeavor of traveling abroad.

If you have any questions or would like to make a donation to our club, please contact Ryan Wessels @ 462-3756 or email
