Additional Information

Volunteer at Day and Evening Camp

Hey, Girl Scout parents and guardians! Want to experience camp with your camper? Join the team of experienced volunteers who create the magic of camp, and you can be a part of your camper’s summer adventure. After all, it’s folks like you, behind the scenes or leading activities and groups that make our amazing camps possible! Fill out the new camp volunteer interest survey to get connected with camps near you: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2020CampVolunteer.

Some of the benefits of volunteering at day and evening camp may include:

  • Spend time with your daughter
  • Priority registration for your camper (at 20 of 22 camps!)
  • Guaranteed placement for your camper
  • Reduced registration fee for your camper
  • No need to arrange childcare for your other children - many camps offer boy and preschool-age units for children of volunteers
  • Developing your leadership expertise
  • Gaining new skills and tools
  • Connecting with fellow Girl Scout volunteers in your area

All volunteers complete a background check through Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital and receive pre-camp training. Volunteer roles include:

  • Unit Leader/Counselor: Guide a group of campers through pre-planned activities with the help of another counselor or a teen aide. 
  • Program/Center Volunteer: Teach a skill or plan and lead a special activity like arts & crafts, nature/outdoors, STEM, high adventure, sports, etc.
  • Health Supervisor: Provide first aid and manage camper and staff safety (requires First Aid/CPR certifications)
Who Can Attend Day & Evening Camp?

Most of our day and evening camps are open to Girl Scouts completing grades K-12. Check individual camp descriptions on gscnc.org/dayandeveningcamp for specific grade requirements. 

Girl Scout parents & guardians can attend camp too as volunteers and experience camp with their campers! There are so many jobs you can help do at camp, from leading a program or group, to bus chaperone and first aid. All volunteers are background checked and receive pre-camp training. Check individual camp descriptions on gscnc.org/dayandeveningcamp for specifics or fill out the new camp volunteer interest survey to get connected with camps near you: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2020CampVolunteer.

Leadership for Teens

Many camps offer aide-in-training (AIT, AIT 1, or AIT 2) and/or aide programs, which gives Girl Scouts in grades 5 and up the opportunity to participate in leadership roles and learn valuable, hands-on leadership skills. Camp aides and AITs can earn volunteer hours towards Girl Scout Journeys, badges or higher awards, and must be available for all required trainings, which vary from camp to camp. Check individual camp descriptions on gscnc.org/dayandeveningcamp for detailed information.

This is the Teen Leadership Chart
Campers with Special Needs

Each year, many campers with special needs participate in summer camp programs alongside other campers of their age. If your camper has medical, physical, developmental, social, or other special needs, we encourage you to work with us to find the camp program that best suits their needs. Please contact Denise Viau, Camping Services Manager, at customercare@gscnc.org or 202-274-3308, before registering your camper to discuss camp options.

Payment

Be prepared to pay the entire camp fee in full when registering for camp. Payment plans for day and evening camps are not available. Camp fees vary by camp and by program - check individual camp descriptions on our webpage at gscnc.org/dayandeveningcamp for specific camp pricing. The camp fees collected at registration are used to pay for all camp expenses such as programming, bus transportation, property rental fees, storage fees, and more. The differences in prices represent the wide variety of programs available across the Council. Financial Assistance is available, see the Financial Assistance section above for more information.

Refund and Cancelation Policy

Refund policies and deadlines vary from camp to camp. Visit gscnc.org/dayandeveningcamp to view each camp’s refund policy. Except in extenuating circumstances, Council will not override a camp’s refund policy. Refunds for Girl Scout membership will not be issued.

Girl Scouts Nation's Capital reserves the right to cancel any camp due to lack of volunteers ensuring Girl Scout safety ratios, insufficient enrollment, or other extenuating circumstances.

In the event of a camp cancellation, you will receive a notification and a full refund.

Financial Assistance

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

Complete the financial assistance application.

Applications must be submitted at least 10 business days prior to registering for camp.

Financial aid applications are reviewed on a rolling basis every 10 business days, and you will receive an email only after the request is reviewed and approved. The email will contain a code to use when registering for camp.

If you have more than one camper, please complete a separate application for each child.

All application information is confidential. Questions? Contact registration@gscnc.org.

How to Register for Day and Evening Camp

Camp sessions fill up very quickly. We receive many phone calls and emails on opening days of registration. Please check your account information at least one week prior to the opening day using the checklist below to help make registration go more smoothly. For assistance at any point in this process, please contact our Customer Care team by email: registration@gscnc.org or phone: 202-237-1670.

Visit gscnc.org and click eBiz (located in the top right corner of our home page). You’ll need to make sure you know the following for registration:

Login Information: (username and password). If you have previously registered your camper for summer camp or a Council event, your login is the same. Contact our Customer Care team if you have trouble accessing your account, or if your camper’s Girl Scout membership is with a different council.

Once you login to your account, please check the following:

Contact Information: Email any changes to your contact information to registration@gscnc.org.

Your camper’s Guardian 1: Only your camper’s Guardian 1 will be able to register them for camp - not the troop leader, Guardian 2, or family manager. If you need to update this, please email registration@gscnc.org

When registration opens, log in and click Activities to find all our summer camp offerings.

Search for your desired camp: Use the search box on the right side of the page to type in the camp program name.

Click the camp program name in the listings in the center of the page. You may need to click the arrow button near the bottom of the page to go to the next page of listings.

Register for camp! If you have any problems during the registration process, please contact registration@gscnc.org.

Remember, campers must register for the program units based on the grade they are currently in for the 2019-2020 school year.

Camp Placement

There are two types of placements - First Come, First Served and Lottery. Both must pay in full at the time of registration.

  • First Come First Served (FCFS) Camps: placement is automatic for FCFS camps. Once campers are registered online through eBiz, they have a space at camp. However, each camp is volunteer-run, and they need enough adults to help behind the scenes or to deliver programming. Consider volunteering! Most camps guarantee entry and offer priority placement for volunteers’ campers. 
  • Lottery Camps: placement is not automatic for lottery camps. When you pay in full and complete your registration by the lottery registration deadline, you are buying a “ticket” into the camp lottery, not a space in camp. Once the deadline passes, the camp leadership team will randomly select campers from the “tickets” to be accepted into camp and notify parents/guardians via email or mail. If your camper is not selected through the lottery, and you turn down the waitlist, a full refund will be issued. Each camp has different lottery registration and notification deadlines, please see the descriptions for our lottery camps Ashgrove Adventure, Burke Lake Adventures, Camp Crossroads, Camp Fairfax, Camp Summer Magic, and Camp Tuckerman for specific dates and details.
Camp Confirmations

After registering, you will receive an eBiz confirmation email containing the link to view the general day and evening camp confirmation packet at https://bit.ly/SDEPConfirmation. You will also receive a camp-specific confirmation email or letter that comes from the camp directly, so arrival date can vary depending on the lottery deadlines, closing dates and placement dates.

It is very important that you make sure your eBiz contact information is up to date. The camp directors use the contact information listed on you and your camper’s eBiz profiles to send out important camp information. Check your profile information in eBiz, the online events registration site, to ensure all contact information is up to date. To change your profile information, email customercare@gscnc.org.

Camper Health Forms

Registration for day and evening camps is only complete after parents/guardians submit their camper’s day and evening camp health form. Starting in March, the camper’s Guardian 1 will receive a personalized, secure SurveyMonkey link a day after registering for camp from noreply@gscnc.org to fill out and complete the camper’s health form.

  • Please check your spam or junk folder for this email. 
  • Each camper has a unique link to fill out a personalized health form. Please do not alter or share the unique link. It will only work for your camper.
  • Be sure to complete the health form within 15 days of receiving the email to ensure your camper’s registration is complete.

When completing the health form, please be sure to complete each question in full; provide as much detail as possible. Once you have finished every page/section, push the submit button at the end -- incomplete forms are discarded. In approximately 3-5 business days, you will receive an email from noreply@gscnc.org confirming receipt of your camper's form.

If you need to make changes after submitting, please use your original link and complete a new form.

Please complete the health form for your camper even if they have registered on eBiz for a lottery camp. If the camper is not accepted into the lottery and turns down the waitlist, or if you cancel your camper’s registration as accompanying health form will be securely discarded.

If you need the link to your camper’s health form sent again or would prefer to complete a paper health form, please contact dayandeveningcamp@gscnc.org or 202-274-3329. If completing a paper health form, please reach out to the camp and send it to their preferred address. Health forms sent to Council offices will not be accepted.

Please note if a parent/guardian fails to submit their camper’s health form by 11 days prior to the first day of camp, the camper’s registration will be canceled, and no refund will be provided.

What if my Camper is attending Sleep-Away Camp too?

Sleep-away camp health forms and day/evening camp health forms are processed and stored in different secure networks.

  • Sleep Away camp Health forms are processed through CampDoc.com. 
  • Day and Evening camps are processed through SurveyMonkey.

Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to share health forms between the two systems.

  • If your camper is attending both sleep-away camp and day or evening camp, you will need to fill out one health form for sleep-away camp through CampDoc and one health form for day/evening camp through SurveyMonkey.
  • If your camper is attending multiple sleep-away camps or day and evening camps, you will only need to fill out each of these health forms once. Copies of your camper’s health forms will be sent to each day or evening camp and sleep-away camp they are registered to attend.

If you have multiple campers, you will need to fill out one form for each of them.

Medications at Camp

If your camper takes routine medication or needs emergency medication while at camp, you must complete additional specialized forms in addition to the camper health form (see Camper Health Forms for more information). 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. If your camper requires emergency medication or specialized healthcare including the use of an epinephrine pen, insulin, and/or an inhaler, you must submit the Specialized Health Care form. These forms are mandatory only if you anticipate sending medication to camp with your camper. 

The forms can be found at the below links and also in the Day & Evening Camp confirmation packet at https://bit.ly/SDEPConfirmation

If you have questions about the specialized health care forms, please contact dayandeveningcamp@gscnc.org or 202-274-3329.

Except for 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, medications that are not in the original container, or over the counter medications not included on the Medication Administration Form. Prescription medication must include the pharmacy label.

Allergy & Epi Pen Form

Transportation

Bus transportation is available at the following camps: Ashgrove Adventure, Brighton Woods Day Camp, Camp Bay Breeze, Camp Crossroads, Camp Mighty Oak, Camp MountainView, Camp Pleasant Valley, Camp Valley View, and Sweet Little Vacation. Check individual camp descriptions on our webpage at gscnc.org/dayandeveningcamp for more specific information. For camps that do not offer transportation, arranging a carpool with fellow parents is strongly recommended.

Photo Identification Policy

To help ensure camper safety, each camp checks photo identification for all adults picking up at camp or at the bus stop. Campers will only be released to individuals listed on the camper’s authorized pick up list (part of the camper health form). All adults’ names will be cross-referenced with their photo identification. Please inform all individuals on your camper’s authorized pickup list that they will be required to show identification when picking up your camper. Please be patient with camp staff during this process, particularly on the first day of camp.

Before and After Care

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

High Adventure

Many of our camps offer high adventure opportunities ranging from slingshots and archery to canoeing and kayaking. Opportunities for high adventure vary based on the camp, program, and camper’s current grade. Please read each individual camp description online at gscnc.org/dayandeveningcamp for more information about specific camp offerings.

By registering your child for camp, you are giving your permission for them to participate in high adventure activities at camp. High adventure activities can be cancelled due to weather or other conditions. Check individual camp descriptions for or more information about the specific high adventure activities each camp offers.

Camp Behavior

Providing a safe, healthy and positive experience for every camper is a top priority at Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital day, evening, and sleep-away camps. We expect campers will follow the Girl Scout Law, be "considerate and caring" towards others, and "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, on the bus, or at any time during the camp day. The staff are there to ensure every camper has a safe and fun experience at camp.

The director and camp staff will do everything possible to help campers adjust to camp life.  However, Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital reserves the right to send any camper home from camp who consistently exhibits unsuitable behavior, endangers the camp community or whose actions towards others are unacceptable. In these cases, the camper’s parent/guardian is responsible for picking them up from camp. No refunds will be given if a camper is sent home due to unacceptable behavior or inordinate home missing.

Tax Receipts for Childcare

Camp receipts for tax purposes can only be issued after services are rendered. If you would like a receipt for taxes, please complete the Camp Receipt Request after camp has finished - located online at gscnc.org/dayandeveningcamp
