Frequently Asked Questions for Parents and Troop Leaders
Online registration will be available in March for your convenience! Please use this registration method to help us gather the information we need for your camper as well as required forms.
What if my camper isn't a current member of Girl Scouts?
If your camper is not a current member of Girls Scouts of the USA, please register her online (www.gssjc.org). Follow the prompts to ‘Join Today’ and when asked to select a troop, select the 'unsure' option. In the pop-up window type ‘Troop 316571’ and continue the registration process.
Please note: The current membership fee for the remainder of the 2019 year, ending 9/30/2020, is $25.00 As of May 1, 2020, an extended membership option will be offered for 17 months of GSUSA membership, ending 9/30/20, for $35.00. This is an option for first-time members joining during the summer months.
Please print and submit the confirmation email received following completion of registration with the required camp registration forms.
Questions and issues with the GSUSA registration process should be directed to the GSSJC Customer Service Staff: 713-292-0300 during regular business hours.
Will my camper get the workshops she wants?
Campers are placed in workshops in order of the following priority:
- Girl Scouts accompanied by an adult volunteering all 3 days—Please volunteer!
- All remaining Girl Scouts with accurate and complete camper registrations.
- Workshops are subject to volunteer support, camper interest and badge availability.
What if I need to cancel my registration? Do I get a refund?
All fees except $10.00 are refunded after camp ends provided the Camp Director receives written notice of cancellation prior to the registration cut-off (date to be announced). Emails should be sent to the Camp Director: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can my camper be in the same group as her friends?
Girl Scout Daisies and Brownies may choose ONE friend to be their "camp buddy". This option is found in the Camper Registration section. Camp Buddies MUST choose the SAME workshops and registrations must submitted on the same day or the pairing may not occur. If mailing the registration forms, the 2 packets of forms must be mailed in the same envelope, so they will be received at the same time.
Please note: No troops are guaranteed to be placed together as this is an independence-building event.
Maximum registration of 330 Campers and Program Aides.
