All camp registrations will require a $30 deposit, payable by credit card online.

See our "How to Get Your Girl to Camp" step-by-step registration guide.

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! Lapsed members or non-members will have a $40 membership fee added to their camp total.

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?
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 2021 - sorry, it cannot be carried over to another year.

Note: Girls who earned a camp session in 2020's Free Camp Challenge must use their session in 2021 also.  If a girl earned a free session in 2020 and another in 2021, both sessions must be used this summer.  Girls can attend more than one week of camp or choose a higher cost specialty camp.

When is all the money due?
Camp balances must be paid in full by June 1, 2021. Any new camp registrations received on or after June 1, 2021 will require full payment at the time of registration.

How can I pay?
We accept credit cards, money order, or personal check. Cash is only accepted in person at one of our service centers - please do not send cash through the mail! Payment options and payment plans are selected during online registration. On June 2, 2021 remaining balances will be paid by automatic withdrawal from your designated account.

Can I apply for financial assistance?
Yes. GSME has a small amount of financial assistance set aside to help families who need it to 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. Once you are registered for camp, you'll receive information on how to apply for a Campership. Families are expected to contribute as much as possible, and a minimum $30 deposit is required. Applications are due March 30, 2021. Decisions will be made by mid-April.

OK I’ve registered. What’s next?
All registration confirmations and camp communications are sent via email and important information is always available in your CamplnTouch account. Please make sure you use a current email address when you register so you will receive all updates and reminders. You don’t want to miss any important information! Need to update your email or aren't sure which one you used in CampInTouch previously? Contact Customer Care at 888-922-4763.

What do I need to do before camp? (Note: Deadline for forms has been changed.)
All required forms and documents must be submitted by June 1, 2021.* All campers need to provide a current immunization record, and resident campers must have had a physical exam within 12 months of their camp attendance date. All required forms are in your CampInTouch account under Forms & Documents.

*If your physical exam falls between June 1st and your camp start date, please provide your physical exam form two weeks prior to your camp session.

What if I don't have access to a computer or the internet?
Call Customer Care at 888-922-4763 for any assistance in registering.
