Is financial assistance available?

Yes! Financial assistance and a variety of camperships are available for all programs except for family camp. Contact us at or 1-800-621-7042 for more information or fill out the financial assistance application.

When will I know that my daughter is in the program she wants?

If you choose to register online, you will know immediately that your daughter has been accepted into the program. Your registration will not be accepted if space is not available. If registering by mail, you will receive a confirmation email when your registration has been processed.

When is final payment due?

Final payment is due on June 1 or your registration is subject to cancellation. A late payment fee of $20 will be added to all balances paid after the June 1 payment deadline and for late registrations submitted after June 1.

Can I register after June 1?

Yes! If there is space in a program, you can register up until the week before camp starts. A late registration fee of $20 is added to all resident camp registrations after June 1.

What if I need to cancel? What is your cancellation policy?

Resident camp cancellations received before June 1 will receive a full refund, less the $40 non-refundable deposit.

Cancellations made after June 1 must include a note from a doctor or other suitable documentation. Acceptable situations include camper illness, family emergency, job transfer, etc. If eligible for a refund, less the deposit, a written request must be submitted to the Council Headquarters within two weeks of the first day of the camp session you were registered to attend. Refunds are made by council check and will be mailed. Please allow four to six weeks for processing.

If a camp session is cancelled by GSOH due to low enrollment or other reasons, campers will be given a choice to transfer to a suitable open session or receive a full refund of amount paid.

Can campers stay with a sister or friend?

Yes! If girls are registering for the same program, they can request one other girl as a buddy. Buddies must be requested by name, not troop number.

Where can I find more information?

Each program lists a grade range which a camper needs to complete in order to attend. Since a rising 4th grader has just completed 3rd grade, she is not eligible for Junior programs yet. Popular camp programs are often repeated for many years, so encourage your camper to try something different this year and look forward to next year when she will be old enough for the program she is interested in attending.

Can I visit camp?

Visitation is not allowed while summer camp is in session. The camp open house is a great opportunity to visit the camp, meet some of the staff members, and have your questions answered prior to your daughter’s camp session. Please see the latest issue of myGSOH for information about when the open house will take place.

What if I need to switch to a different week after my registration has been processed?

A $20 transfer fee will be applied. Please check your dates carefully!

What if I need to cancel? Will I receive a refund?

To qualify for a refund of a camp fee paid, you must submit a written request to Council no less than 15 business days prior to the first day of the day camp and state why you will be unable to attend.

A refund request based on last minute cancellation because of sudden illness, death of a family member, or other family emergency must be submitted to the Council within two weeks after the first day of the camp session you were to attend. In the event of any cancellation, 10% of the fee paid will be retained for handling charges.

Refunds will not be issued for no shows, verbal requests, requests made after day camp, or if requested with less than 15 business days’ notice.

Can we go to day camp as a troop?

No, girls can register individually or with a buddy, but day camp is not a troop activity.
