Who can attend our camps? All girls are welcome to attend Girl Scout camp. There is a fee due at registration for campers who are not currently registered Girl Scout members. This fee is due in addition to the deposit.
Accreditation – All camp programs meet standards of health, safety and program excellence set by the Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA). Camp Grove Point is accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA). The ACA symbol guarantees that the highest standards possible are met in the areas of safety, staff, cleanliness and program excellence.
Camp Staff – GSCB hires professional, nurturing camp staff and volunteers. Our staff is carefully selected from applicants from all over the world. They are chosen for their maturity, program design abilities, experience and interest in the outdoors. All staff attend training in girl safety, program execution and camp skills.
Health and Safety – Your camper’s health and safety are our first priority. All programs are planned and staffed according to the high standards of GSUSA and the state. All summer camp programs have a certified first aider who is also trained in CPR. Our Resident Camps provide a licensed nurse or have a health supervisor who is in daily contact with a licensed doctor for consultation if necessary. If your camper has any allergies or health concerns, please contact the Director prior to camp.
Camper Behavior – Camp life is an excellent opportunity for girls to live and work together. It is the camp staff’s responsibility to ensure that girls find productive ways to work through their differences. However, if a girl cannot follow the behavioral agreements set by the camp, she may be asked to leave. It is the parent or guardian’s responsibility to pick up their camper when notified. No refunds will be issued if a camper is sent home for behavioral issues.
Refunds and Cancellations – Camp fees, minus non-refundable deposits, will be refunded only if a camper does not attend due to serious illness or accident. Illness or accident refund requests must be verified in writing by the attending physician. All other refund requests must be submitted in writing by June 1, stating the reason for the request. If a camper does not show up or stay the entire program due to homesickness, behavioral problems, parent request, lack of enjoyment, early departures, late arrivals or schedule conflicts, etc. there is no refund. GSCB reserves the right to modify or cancel any program listed in the brochure. Deposits will be refunded only if the chosen program is full or canceled and no other program is desired by the camper.
First and Second Choice – Be sure to list both a first and second choice of programs on your registration form. If the first choice is full, we will place the camper in her second choice.
Financial Assistance – Camp financial assistance or “camperships” are available to help offset campers’ costs.
Swimming Evaluation – At the beginning of each session (where swimming is available), our aquatic staff hosts a swimming evaluation for all campers. This is a non-threatening, non-competitive activity designed to evaluate each camper’s swimming ability and comfort level in the water. All swimming levels are welcome at camp.
Sleeping Arrangements – Campers live together in groups based on their grades and programs. We have a range of accommodations including: Four-person platform tents with wooden floors and cots: This is a favorite of many and a traditional element of Girl Scout camps everywhere. The majority of campers will live in traditional platform tent units. Four-Person Adirondack: shelters with three walls, a fourth screen wall and bunk beds.
Bring a friend to camp – Do you have a friend who is not a Girl Scout? Does she love the outdoors and making new friends?
Bring her with you to camp this summer! Imagine all the fun you two could have together at camp.
EZ – Pay - We know the current economy can be challenging on family budgets. To make it “EZ”, we are offering a new payment option.
Sign up for EZ-Pay on the registration form and pay for summer camp in installments.
