How do I register my girl for camp?
Camp registration opens
online at 10 a.m. of February 3, 2020 at
www.girlscoutshs.org/camp. We encourage you to register as early as
possible to ensure your girl gets the session she wants.
A $50 deposit is required to register your girl with the final payment
being made no later than two weeks prior to session start date.
If your girl is planning on using Passport Bucks from the Fall
Product or Girl Scout Cookie Program, register her as soon as possible
and pay the $50 deposit. Pathway Bucks cannot be used to pay the
deposit. Once she has completed the Cookie Program and received her
Pathway Bucks she can apply them towards her final balance.
My camper’s program is full; what should I do?
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.
financial assistance available?
Yes! Financial assistance
(“Campership”) is available only to members of Girl Scouts Heart of
the South who were active members as of December 1, 2019. Please call
800.624.4185 to request an application.
Girls are also
able to participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program and select
Passport Bucks as part of their rewards to apply towards the cost of
camp. Ask your troop leader for more information.
there a confirmation packet or packing list?
Everything you need
to know is included in the “Summer Camp Success Guide” that will be
mailed to you upon registration. You’ll find packing lists, forms that
you will need to fill out, check-in and check-out times, and more
valuable information about camp.
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. Every effort is
made to honor this request.
Will my daughter earn badges
while at camp?
Some sessions will have Girl Scouts earning
badges this summer, others will have them checking off requirements
towards earning them. Please see session descriptions for details. A
list of requirements met will be sent home with your daughter.
Will my daughter need money while at camp?
snacks are included in the session cost. Campers can purchase
t-shirts, souvenirs, stamps, etc., from the trading post. Money is
collected when the girls check in at camp. Any unused money will be
returned at the end of the session.
Are cell phones,
tablets or laptops allowed?
No. Camp gives girls the opportunity
to unplug and be present in their experience.
New this year is a pilot program for girls entering grades 7-12.
Girls' cell phones will be collected and placed in protective pouches
at the beginning of the camp session. Girls will be able to use their
phones daily during designated times. There will be a minimal usage
fee for the week.
How can I communicate with my daughter
while at camp?
We highly encourage parents, siblings and family
to write to their campers either electronically or by mail.

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 do need to have a
certain level of independence to attend some camp sessions.
For campers that may need assistance, the Elizabeth Gwin
Special Session is able to accommodate both girls and boys with
special needs. There is a separate application process for this
session online at www.girlscoutshs.org/egsession.
have any questions, please contact Emilie Hutcheson, Director of
Outdoor Leadership Experience at email@example.com, or
Do we need to get a physical exam?
No. Physical examinations are not required; however, we do require
campers to fill out a Camper
Health Form with a parent’s signature every year.
When is final payment due?
Final payment for resident camps is
due two-weeks prior to session start date.
What if we
need to cancel?
Please let us know as soon as possible if your
girl is unable to attend her session. Refunds, minus the deposit, will
be given only in case of camper illness, or death in the family.
Documentation will need to be provided. Refunds will not be given
after the start of the session.
