Pricing Structure

Realizing families have different abilities to pay, we’re again instituting a voluntary fee structure based on a 3-tiered pricing system. Choose the tier that’s best for you! 

Tier A – Traditionally subsidized cost, representing a $100 subsidy (Enter discount code TierA at registration)
Tier B – Partially subsidized cost, representing a $50 subsidy (Enter discount code TierB at registration)
Tier C – Closest to TRUEST cost of camp, if you’re able to pay this—please do!  (Enter discount code TierC at registration)

Basic Overnight Camp Tier A starts at $500/week. Trips and/or specialty programs may be priced differently; further details can be found within our gsEvents registration site once you’re ready to book your program. 

Tiered pricing does not apply to Mom & Me, Troop Core and trips. Mom & Me costs $55 per person. Troop Core costs $85 per girl, first 2 adults within ratio are free, additional adults are $45 per person. More details can be found within the registration site. 

We want you to know that 3-tiered pricing is: 

1.     Your choice. On an honor system, each family can decide what’s best for them and their budget.

2.     Confidential. Unless the caregiver alerts the girl or her counselors, no one is aware of this information once camp is running, and it won’t impact a girl’s experience. Only members of the year-round camp team who help process registrations have access to this information. Pricing information is only referenced if you need help processing your registration.

3.     Easy. Within the registration process, it’s as simple as entering the discount code listed above. No matter what tier you choose, no additional steps or paperwork are needed.

Summer Camp FAQ

(All sessions are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances.)

Does my girl need to be a Girl Scout to register for camp?

No! Our overnight and day camps are open to all and we encourage campers to bring a friend, Girl Scout or not! If your camper would like to become a registered Girl Scout before camp, simply register here!

Non-members have a $25 fee added during the camp registration process. Non-members may choose whether they’d like to use this amount toward becoming a registered Girl Scout or not. If you decide to join, the $25 fee will be used for your 2022 Girl Scouts annual membership!

Do you offer financial aid?

Yes, financial assistance is available for registered Girl Scouts. Please fill out this request form and submit it online. If you have any further questions, please contact executiveoffice@gsnypenn.org

What training do camp staff and volunteers receive?

All staff receives extensive training prior to the arrival of all campers. Training includes activity programming and outdoor skills, health and safety, emergency procedures, age-level characteristics, meeting camper needs, dealing with homesickness, sanitizing and other COVID-19 response protocols and much more. Staff who supervise and instruct high adventure or specialty activities are required to have additional training and qualifications.

What is the ratio of staff or volunteers to campers?

The ratio is based upon camper age and follows GSUSA guidelines. There will be at least two staff members present with the girls at
all times.

Staff to camper ratios:

Daisies (Grades K-1) 1:6
Brownies (Grades 2-3) 1:6
Juniors (Grades 4-5) 1:8
Cadettes (Grades 6-8) 1:10
Seniors (Grades 9-10) 1:10
Ambassadors (Grades 11-12) 1:10
What safety standards are followed?

Our camps are required to meet established standards set by state and local health departments, GSUSA and where applicable, the American Camp Association (ACA) for health and safety, site, program and personnel. Each camp is inspected twice a summer by the county health department in which the camp is located.

COVID-19 safety protocols are mandated by state and county health departments and are strictly enforced. These protocols are ever-changing, so we appreciate your patience as we make the camp experience as safe as possible!

As of Feb. 10, 2022: We continue to monitor CDC, state and school guidance around COVID-19 mitigation. At this time, our current universal masking and social distancing guidelines remain in place and we continue to require proof of vaccination for overnights.

We have not yet received COVID-19 guidance from the CDC nor NYS Department of Health regarding vaccination requirements for summer camps; at this time all precautions implemented last summer to mitigate risk will remain in effect. We will issue an update at a later date.

When summer camp COVID-19 guidelines are finalized as we get closer to camp season, should you decide to cancel your child’s registration, our cancellation policy states that if you cancel at least 2 weeks (14 days) prior to the start of your camper’s session, you will receive a full refund less the $50 deposit paid upon registration.

Campers will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test on the first day of camp. Parents may elect to have testing done on their own within 72 hours of camp check-in. If testing is not available in your area, rapid testing will be available onsite at all camps during the check-in process.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as this is still a very fluid and ever-evolving situation. If you have further questions, please contact summercamp@gsnypenn.org

What if I do not have a computer or internet to complete my camper’s health profile?

We encourage parents/guardians to complete their camper’s health profile online through JotForm. If you are absolutely unable to do so, please contact us at 1.315.698.9400 or 1.800.943.4414 to mail forms to you. You will need to complete the forms and send them back to our Cicero Service Center (8170 Thompson Rd., Cicero, NY 13039) at least two weeks before your camper’s session, along with their immunization list and physical form.

What is Mom & Me?

These programs are designed for a Girl Scout and any special adult female in her life! Activities are led by trained staff as you participate in some of your favorite camp activities like swimming, boating, arts and crafts, and archery. They are open to all levels, including Daisies! There is a $25 deposit per person for these camps due at the time of registration. 

What is Troop Core Camp?

Troop Core Camp is the perfect program for a troop that wants to enjoy a camping experience as a group. Camp staff facilitates programming including archery, waterfront, arts and crafts, and more. Additionally, all meals and first aid are provided. Troops don’t need to bring a Simply Successful Camping or First Aid training to participate, making for a camping experience that is accessible to all! Troop Core Camp is offered throughout the season and is open to all levels. Cost is $85 per girl and each troop can bring two adults for free. Any additional adults are $45 per person. There is a $25 deposit per person for Troop Core Camps due at the time of registration.

*Please note: we are currently limiting group sizes for these programs. Group sizes will vary by camp, up to 50% capacity of each sleeping accommodation. Check with your specific camp to determine exact maximum group sizes.

What is the cancellation policy?

Payments for all council programs and events are non-refundable unless council cancels the event or the registering person/group cancels PRIOR to the registration deadline. Cancellations made after the registration deadline will not receive a refund. Please note: the $50 deposit paid for overnight/day camp and the $100 deposit paid for trips when registering is non-refundable.

Cancellation notifications should be sent via email to summercamp@gsnypenn.org. Refunds for cancellations are made only if the notification is received prior to the registration deadline. A cancellation may qualify for a refund (minus the deposit fee) if the cancellation is due to a qualified medical reason. A refund request along with a doctor’s excuse must be received within two weeks of the cancellation.

*Please note: a minimum number of campers is required to run all programming. If the minimum is not met, camps may be subject to cancellation.

 

When is payment due? What happens if payment is not made on time?


The last day of standard registration and final payment for all camps due in full is on Friday, June 24, 2022. After this date, we will reach out to remind you that your camper still has a balance. If your balance due is not paid by Monday, June 27, your camper’s registration will be cancelled.

When should all of my camper’s health paperwork in JotForm be completed?

The deadline for JotForm medical forms is two weeks before your camper’s actual camp session. The payment deadline is not the same as the JotForm deadline.

Where are all the health forms?
