Book now to reserve your spot on Chelsea Glauber’s bottle school trip: July 8th to 14th, 2023 ***Booking Options Below***

Hi friend,

I have dreamt about doing this friend’s trip since I went on my first bottle school trip in 2012 – I am so happy that YOU will be there! Some of my best memories in life have been on these trips (this will be trip #7) and I can’t wait to share this experience with you. It promises to be a 40th bday adventure like none other.

There’s so much to love about it — Antigua is so charming and fun to explore, Lake Atitlan is a beautiful and special place, and being in the community building a school alongside the kids/students is so fulfilling and an absolute blast! Everyone that has gone on this trip, has at least one amazing moment in the community that impresses upon their heart a “feeling-memory” so deeply they swear it will stay with them forever. If that doesn’t make sense now, it will soon. We’ll be talking about it for the next 40 years, at least 🙂

This is an all-inclusive trip — meals, hotels, and transportation (except for flights and travel insurance) are included. Just one meal at the lake and the boat rides (which are about $3 a person) are not included. One of the meals I’m most excited about (although they’re all good!) is our Sunday brunch at the spectacular Casa Santo Domingo in Antigua, a 1500’s convent turned hotel. Actually, the whole week will be a culinary delight. When we’re in the community we will have a dedicated chef, Christie, who was trained here in the states (or someone that works with her.) All of our lodging will be cute, quaint, and clean (oh, and comfortable of course). I’m excited for sing-a-longs in the van — I know you are too — and all the adventure and memories to come.

Can’t wait! (well, for everything except the part about turning 40)

Much Love,
Chelsea

Fundraising for bottle schools

You might also like to fundraise for Hug It Forward bottle schools. Fundraising for bottle schools is optional – it is not a requirement of participating in a bottle school trip.

If you choose to fundraise, we suggest a $250 fundraising goal, but some people choose to do more or less than this. It’s really up to you – how much you think your friends and families can give, how creative you can be, and how much time you’re prepared to put into it.

See more information about fundraising.
