How to Register for a Camp Program

Line of happy girls

General camp registration for summer 2018 opens on December 1, 2017 at 12:00AM!

Girls do not have to be Girl Scouts to register for camp! Our camps are open to every girl without regard to race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or ability. If you are attending troop camp, family camp, or one of our council-run resident camps, please follow the steps below to sign up.

1. Sign Up for a Session

View our program search to see all of our current offerings, and follow the registration links included in each listing to start signing up. Once you register, you’ll receive a receipt indicating your daughter’s camp program, payment, and links to important information, such as packing lists, driving instructions, open house dates, and more.

2. Request to Camp With a Buddy

Girls can room with a buddy at resident camp if they are registered for the same program and session as their friend. To make sure your girl and her buddy are placed together, be sure to list them as "Camper Buddies" on each other's registration forms. Remember that placement with a buddy isn't guaranteed, so register both campers as early as possible.

3. Pay for Camp

At the time of registration, you'll be asked to pay a $150 deposit for each girl-only session and/or a $50/person deposit for Troop or Family Camp programs. For more information, read about paying for camp (by credit card, check, or Cookie Rewards Card) and learn about our financial assistance options.

4. Know Our Policies

Read through our policies on cancellation, behavior, electronics, nits, and more.

5. Get Ready and Get Excited!

Read over the post-registration e-mails you'll receive from (our event registration service), fill out any required forms, check out the Preparing for Camp section of our website, order a camp care package, and hang out with us out on social media to keep in touch as we get ready for summer fun!
