How to Apply for Financial Assistance

Summer 2018 Deadline for Financial Aid Requests: June 1, 2018

Any girl member who lives within Girl Scouts of Northern California’s jurisdiction is eligible to apply for financial help to attend one of our Girl Scout camps! Girls who live outside of the GSNorCal boundaries must contact their local Girl Scout Council for financial aid information. Our financial assistance program is need-based and takes into consideration multiple factors, such as household income, family size, and any extenuating circumstances when allocating our financial resources.

1. Register for your camp program. The first step in applying is to register your girl for her camp session! We can't process financial aid requests until a camper is registered and her camp placement has been confirmed. Campers must pay the security deposit for their camp session up front; however, if your full financial aid request is not granted, you'll be able to cancel your registration and request a refund for the deposit.
2. Complete the Financial Aid request form and send it to Girl Scouts of Northern California. Completed forms can be sent by fax or mail:
Fax: 1-408-287-8662

San Jose, CA 95128
