Camp Registration Q & A
I want to go to camp! What’s next?
Great - we're excited that you are excited.
STOP! Are you looking to register for Troop Mini-Camp?
Registration opens April 3 - Please click on the "REGISTER FOR CAMP NOW" button above.
All camp registrations will require a $30 deposit, payable by credit card online.
First Time Registrants:
Click on Register for Camp button above. This opens our web portal, CampInTouch, where you’ll be prompted to create an account before registering. Be sure to use an email address that you use regularly as your username and make a note of your username and password as you’ll be returning to this portal to complete camp forms.
Welcome back! Click on Register for Camp button above and use your CampInTouch account information (used last year to access forms) to register. If you can’t remember your username, or password, no worries! You will be prompted to reset your login.
Camp merchadise can be ordered during the registration process.
Already registered and need forms? Everything you need is on the CampInTouch page. Save your password and login; you'll need to get back to this page numerous times for forms and to get additional camp information as it is posted.
Need help? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to assist you.
I really want my friend to go to camp with me but she isn't a
Girl Scout. Can she come?
Of course! You don’t have to already be a Girl Scout to join the adventure. All girls are welcome! Your friend just needs to join as a member before she can begin her camp registration. Tell your friend to go to girlscoutsofmaine.org/join, where she can become a registered member for $40, then have her sign up for her summer adventure.
Do I need to make a deposit when I register?
Yes, all registrations require a $30 deposit.
But I've been working on the Free Camp Challenge. Do I still pay a deposit?
You go girl! Yes, you still need to submit a $30 deposit to hold a spot in the session that you want, so register early. Once we know you've earned your free session at camp, we will refund your $30 deposit or apply it to your balance, depending on the camp session you choose.
It's important to know that the Free Camp Challenge entitles you to up to the value of a one week Classic Camp session. If you complete the Free Camp Challenge and choose a camp session with a higher cost, we will apply the value of a Classic Camp session to your chosen session and you will be responsible for the remaining balance. This reward must be used at a GSME camp during the summer of 2018 - sorry, it cannot be carried over to another year.
When is all the money due?
Camp balances must be paid in full by May 31, 2018. Any camp registrations received on or after May 31, 2018 will require full payment at the time of registration.
How can I pay?
We accept credit card, money order, or personal check. Cash is accepted if you pay in person at one of our service centers - please do not send cash through the mail!
Can I apply for financial assistance?
Yes. GSME has a small amount of financial assistance set aside to help families in need send their girl to camp. All members may apply for a GSME Campership - another great reason to be a registered Girl Scout!
How do I apply for a campership?
We award camperships based on family need on a first come, first served basis, until all the available assistance has been awarded. If you are a registered Girl Scout, after you complete your registration for camp, you’ll get information on how to submit a Campership application. Families are expected to contribute and a $30 deposit is required. Applications are due March 21, 2018. Decisions will be made by mid-April.
OK I’ve registered. What’s next?
All your registration confirmations and camp communications are sent via email and important information will be available in your CampInTouch account. We will use the email address that you use when signing up on CampInTouch for updates and reminders. Please make sure you are using a current email address to avoid missing any important information. If you need to update your email, or aren’t sure of what it is, contact Customer Care at 888-922-4763.
Oh no! I don't have access to a computer or the internet.
Call Customer Care at 888-922-4763 for any assistance in registering.
What happens if I need to cancel?
We hope you won't need to cancel, but if you do, GSME will retain a $30 non-refundable, non-transferable administrative fee and the remaining camp fees will be refunded to you. However, after May 31, 2018 refunds (minus the $30 administrative fee) can only be considered for health reasons, and must be verified by a note from your doctor.
For camp updates, keep tabs on our website, make sure to check out GSME emails, and follow us on Facebook.
