Whether it’s your first summer as a Girl Scout or your fifth, our Summer Day and Evening Camps are the perfect place to discover new experiences, connect with new friends and return home at the end of the day. With over thirty diverse camps sprinkled across our region, you are sure to find the camp that’s just right for you!

While at camp, you’ll try new things, challenge yourself and gain confidence as you sing songs, play games, make arts & crafts, and earn badges. Each program is as unique as the volunteers who run them.  If High Adventure is your thing, many camps include activities like archery, canoeing, and team building. Some programs even offer optional overnights and field trips!

No matter which camp you choose, you’re sure to have your best summer yet!

Additional Information

Financial Assistance

Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital strives to make camp available to all girls regardless of their family’s economic situation. Financial assistance is available for one day or evening camp per camper per summer.

To apply for financial assistance, please complete and submit the application located here.

All requests must be submitted at least ten business days prior to the date you would like to apply for camp. Financial Assistance applications are reviewed on a rolling basis every ten-business days. You will receive an email only after the request is reviewed and approved. The email will contain a code to use when applying for camp. If you have more than one camper, please complete a separate request for each child. All application information is confidential.

Payment

When registering for camp, be prepared to pay the fee in full. Payment plans for Day and Evening Camps are not available. Camp fees vary by camp and by program. The differences in the fees represent the wide variety of programs available across the council. Financial Assistance is available - see the Financial Assistance section for more information.

Volunteer

All of our Day and Evening camps are run by qualified, enthusiastic, and compassionate volunteer camp directors. Parents, Girl Scout Troop Leaders and other qualified adults also frequently volunteer their time to help girls have a great camp experience! In most camps, full time volunteers have guaranteed entry for their campers to attend camps. Other camps, may offer a reduce rate for campers of volunteers.

Each camp handles volunteer registration differently. If you are interested in volunteering at a day or evening camp as a unit leader, program leader or even to check campers in at the bus stop, please contact the camp directly using the volunteer contact listed under each camp’s description.

Who can Attend Camp?

Most of our Day and Evening camps are open to girls completing grades K-12. Check the individual camp description for specific grade requirements.

We welcome non-Girl Scouts to attend camp. Any girl who is not a current member is welcome to attend camp, but they must register and become a Girl Scouts Nation's Capital member. The annual registration fee is $15. You must register 24 hours before selecting a camp, and registering online though the online events registration site. To register as a member, please click here. If you have questions about the registration process or have problems, please email regisration@gscnc.org.

Boys are eligible only at certain camps and must be children of volunteer staff.  Ages vary with each camp. Preschool age children are only eligible at certain camps and must be children of volunteer staff.

High Adventure

High Adventure opportunities vary based on camp, unit program and the camper’s current grade. High Adventure activities are weather dependent and can be canceled due to weather or conditions. 

How to Apply

Remember, some of our camps fill very fast and the Council office receives hundreds of phone calls and emails on opening days of registration. Please, check your account information at least 24 hours prior to the opening day to test your account.

Log into your account on our Event Registration site.

  • If you have previously registered your camper for camp or for a council event, your login has remained the same.
  • If you have trouble accessing your account, or cannot remember your log in information. Do not make an additional account. Please email registration@gscnc.org for assistance.
  • If your Girl Scout membership is with a different council, please email registration@gscnc.org for further instructions.

When registration opens, log in and click Activities to find quick access to all of this summer’s camp offerings.

Remember: Campers must register for the program units based on the grade they will be completing this year. 

Placement

Placement is not automatic for all camps. Some camps place campers based on first come; first serve, while others use a lottery system. See the specific each camp’s description for more details.

Lottery – How it Works

Campers registering for a lottery camp must pay in full at the time of registration. Paying for, and completing registration, does not guarantee the camper will be placed into the lottery camp. If the camper is not selected through the lottery, a full refund will be issued only after the camper turns down the waitlist. For specific dates and fees for lottery camps, please consult the individual camp’s webpage.

Camp Confirmations

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email or letter. This information comes from the camp directly, so arrival dates can vary depending on lottery deadlines, closing dates and placement dates. Please refer to each camp’s description or website for more information.

Before and After Care

Camps do not offer before or after care (extended hours).

Health Forms

Registration for day or evening camp requires parents to submit a health form. Parents will complete one health form per child, even if they are attending multiple Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital day or evening camps. Parents will receive unique link for their camper by May 1st and after confirmation of payment and registration. All health forms will be completed online. 

Please note if a camper fails to submit a health form by camp’s deadline, the camper’s registration could be cancelled. Health form deadlines will be included with the link.

Health Forms

Medications at Camp

If your camp takes routine medication or needs emergency medication while at camp, you must complete additional forms. Any medication, prescription and over the counter, will not be administered at camp without the forms.

For all medications, prescription and over the counter, you must submit the Medication Authorization form. And, if your camper requires emergency medication or specialized healthcare including the use of an Epi-pen, insulin, and/or an inhaler, you must submit the Specialized Healthcare form. These forms are mandatory only if you anticipate sending medication to camp with your camper. The forms can be found on this page beginning in February.

Any medication brought to camp must be in the original container, and prescription medication must include the pharmacy label.

With the exception of emergencies, all campers must self-administer all medications with the guidance and supervision of trained health staff in the camp health center. Camps cannot administer medications that are not prescribed to the camper, or over the counter medications not included on the Medication Administration form.

Please come back to this page for more information and applicable medications forms beginning in February.

Girls with Special Needs

Each year, many girls with special needs participate in our summer camp programs. If your camper has medical, physical, developmental, social, or other special needs we encourage you to work with us to find her the most appropriate camp program. They can join other girls their age for swimming, hiking, singing, and other camp activities. If your camper has special needs, she is welcome to attend Day and Evening camp.

Refunds for Girl Scout Membership will not be issued.

Girl Scouts Nation's Capital reserves the right to cancel any program listed due to insufficient enrollment or other extenuating circumstances. Alternate programs or refunds will be offered.

Camp Behavior

Providing a safe, healthy and positive experience for every camper is top priority. At camp, we expect campers will act in accordance to the Girl Scout law and be “considerate and caring” of others as well as “be a sister to every Girl Scout.” Please encourage your campers to help create a safe camp community by speaking to staff if they see unacceptable behavior among other campers in their unit, cabins or shower house. The staff are there to ensure every camper is having a safe and fun experience at camp.

The director and camp staff will do everything possible to help campers adjust to camp life.  However, the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital reserves the right to send home from camp any girl who consistently exhibits unsuitable behavior or endangers the camp community, or whose actions towards others are unacceptable. The camper’s parent/guardian is responsible for picking her up from camp in these cases.  There will be no refund.

Teen Girl Scouts are encouraged to participate in leadership roles at Day and Evening camp. Depending on the camp, there may be opportunities for teens to serve at Aides or Aides in Training (AIT). Consult the individual camp’s description for details on requirements. Camp Aides and AITs must be available for all required trainings. Trainings, and training dates, vary from camp to camp.
