Resident Camp

My camper's program is full; what should I do?

If you call us, we can add you to a waitlist. Unfortunately, very few waitlisted campers make it onto the roster, so please consider signing up for a second choice if your first choice is full.

Is financial assistance available?

Yes! Financial assistance and camperships are available for all programs in this guide, except Family Camp.

Is there a confirmation packet or packing list?

Everything you need to know is included in the Summer Camp Success Guide!

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. Requests for more than one buddy will not be honored. Please request a buddy by name, not troop number. 

My camper has special needs. Will she be successful at camp?

Many girls find that camp is a place where they are not judged for their differences, but embraced for their unique skills and traits. Girls need to have a certain level of independence to come to camp. Our staff members do not have training to handle some cases, nor can we arrange for every accommodation. If you have any questions, please Customer Care

When is final payment due?

Payment for standard resident camps is due by June 1. Adventure Trek payments are due by May 1. A late fee of $20 will be added to any payments not received by June 1 (May 1 for Adventure Treks).

Can I register after June 1?

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

Cancellation Policy

Resident camp cancellations made before June 1 (May 1 for Adventure Treks) will receive a full refund, less the required non-refundable deposit. Cancellations after June 1 (May 1 for Adventure Treks) must include a doctor’s note or other suitable documentation.
