Resident Camp Registration Information
Placement Begins Now!
Mail in your registration to Girl Scouts Louisiana East, 841 S. Clearview Parkway, New Orleans, LA 70121.
Non-Refundable Registration Deposit: $50.
In anticipation of a camper’s attendance, various expenses are incurred on her behalf, such as supplies, equipment, registration and camp staffing costs. Accordingly, there is a non-refundable $50 deposit for each session requested due with the registration form. Forms received without the deposit(s) will be returned. As the registration process continues, this deposit is applied to the session fees. However, if the participant cancels a session, the deposit is retained. If the council must cancel a session, the deposit will be returned. Please note that the deposit is not transferable to another camper. Cookie Dough is not accepted as payment for the deposit (but is acceptable for the remainder of camp fees).
The balance of the camp fee must be received at either council office three weeks prior to session. NO FEES WILL BE ACCEPTED AT CAMP.
Partial refunds (less non-refundable deposit) may be given in some instances and are considered on a case by case basis. Written requests for a refund must be received by the council least three weeks prior to the opening day of the session. A partial refund (less non-refundable deposit) may be secured if the council receives a written certificate from a licensed M.D. stating she is unable to attend her camp session or if there is a family emergency.
No refund will be given if a camper is sent home due to unacceptable behavior or homesickness. Full refunds will only be issued for sessions canceled by the council.
Camp Scholarship Request
Financial assistance is available for one camp session to those demonstrating financial need and will be a percentage of the session fee. Confidential camp scholarship request applications are due on April 20, 2012. After this date funds may be limited, but applications will be accepted for review. If you wish to request financial assistance, please complete the form located here and attach it to your daughter's registration form. Deposits are still required with a completed financial assistance form. Return the confidential application with your daughter's camp registration form. Only girls registered with the Girl Scouts Louisiana East council are eligible for financial assistance.
Girl Scout Cookie Dough
Girls who earn Cookie dough or Nutte Bucks may be used toward the balance of the camping fees. Please note on the registration form if you have not received your certificate but are eligible. Cookie dough cannot be used as a deposit.
After registration forms and deposits have been received and processed, confirmation packets will be sent via mail indicating placement in camp session(s), balance due, and detailed information on what to pack, trading post, etc. It will take some time to process registrations. If you are curious about the status of your confirmation packet, please call no earlier than May 1, 2012.
