Registration & FAQS

Registration Information

Ready for the best summer ever? Camp is open to all girls entering grades 1-11 in Fall 2022 — no prior Girl Scout experience is required! If your girl is not already a registered Girl Scout, $45 will be added to your total camp balance to cover Girl Scout annual membership dues. Explore the rest of our website to see all the opportunities available to her as a member.

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!

Here is a printable packing list!

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 who they are. While girls need to have a certain level of independence to come to camp, we will do our best to make accommodations and give everyone a good camp experience. Prior to signing up for camp, please talk through your specific needs with the Camp Molly Lauman camp director to ensure we are able to accommodate.

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, not including the non-refundable deposit. Cancellations after June 1 (May 1 for Adventure Treks) must include a doctor’s note or other suitable documentation.
