Day/Twilight Camp

 

Outdoor activities, new friends, and special memories are part of what makes Day/Twilight Camp a great experience for girls. Day/Twilight camp locations vary to give your daughter more options and give you a more convenient trip to and from camp. Each camp has a unique theme as well. Whether a girl chooses camp close to home or miles away, each day she can return home self-confident and bubbling over with stories of friendship, new-found skills, and memories of sunny days or glowing campfires. All Day/Twilight camp sessions are run by Girl Scout volunteers. Session grade levels shown are for the grades girls will enter in the 2017-2018 school year.

Please Note: Day/Twilight Camp forms are sent directly to a designated individual associated with that camp and NOT to a GSNETX service center.

How To Register
screen_64_color

The Day/Twilight Camp Registration and Health History forms are required for every child registered at camp.

  • Registration Option #1
    This offers the best chance for placement. Volunteer yourself or find another adult(s) who will volunteer to take training and serve on the Day/Twilight Camp staff for the week. Each adult working the entire camp session may submit up to six (6) child forms with her or his Adult Volunteer Staff Application. Volunteers will not necessarily be placed in a unit with the children they have registered. See registration information for adults. NOTE: If an adult volunteer cancels their participation, the children registered under their name may also be cancelled if the camp's adult-to-girl ratio drops below safety-wise standards.
  • Registration Option #2
    Individual girls who register for Day/Twilight Camp without an adult volunteer or who have incomplete forms will be placed on a waiting list and placed in a camp unit if enough adult volunteers are available to meet Girl Scout adult-to-girl safety ratios. If placement in camp is not possible, the total camp fee will be refunded. All children placed in camp will be assigned to age appropriate units under the supervision of adult volunteers.
  • Fees
    $55 per girl; $30 for boys and preschoolers of volunteers working as Day/Twilight Camp staff. All checks or money orders should be made payable to the camp you are attending. Information concerning what is covered by this fee, financial 
    assistance and cancellations, and refunds can be found under "Frequently Asked Questions."
  • Non-Girl Scouts
    A $15 non refundable fee is required for annual membership dues to the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. for any girl, current grade K-12, who is not currently registered as a Girl Scout. She must also complete a registration form.This in addition to the $55 camp fee.
  • Parents and/or Campers Meeting
    Most camps have required a pre-camping meeting for parents/guardians of all campers. Campers are expected to attend with parents. The meeting generally covers specific details about participation in camp, answers questions about clothing, and provides a simple equipment list.
  • Buddies
    Two girls (in the same grade) who register for the same camp may request placement in the same unit. In order to ensure that girls will be placed together, they must request to be placed as buddies on the Day/Twilight Camp Registration Form. If both girls do not request each other, there is no guarantee they will be placed together. Learning to connect to others and make new friends is part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Because of this, entire Girl Scout troops may not be placed together. Individual camps vary.

Frequently Asked Questions
question-mark_64

I am volunteering at day/twilight camp – how do I register for day/twilight camp? Any adult volunteering to work at any day/twilight camp will register by using the online application.    

As a day/twilight volunteer I am including 6 girl’s registrations with my registrations, where do I send the girls' forms? Girls’ forms & payment should be mailed to the camp they are planning to attend. Include a copy of the email you receive once you complete the first step of the online day/twilight adult volunteer process.

Who do I make the check out to for day/twilight camp? The checks should be made payable to the name of the day/twilight camp attending – i.e. if you are attending Summer Sensation then the check should be made payable to "Summer Sensation." 

I would like to use my cookie dough to pay for all or a part of my campers fee? Mail your cookie dough along with your campers registration & health form to the camp you wish to attend.  

I am volunteering to work at day/twilight camp and want to bring my 6-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter. Do I need to register them? Yes – all boys (ages 6-12) and preschoolers (ages 3-5) need to register with the same forms as a girl would use for registration. Send those completed forms to the camp where you will be volunteering. Contact each camp to see if they have units for preschool children and boys.

Can I get a refund if my daughter can’t attend day/twilight camp after I have mailed in the registration? $10 of the camp fee is non-refundable after placement and will be deducted from any refund. Before the camp date a written request to the camp director must be received at least 15 days before the start date of camp. After the last day of the specific camp, a written request to the camp director must be received within one week of the camp close date.

Can a non-member attend a day/twilight camp? A girl who is not currently a member of Girl Scouts should go online and complete the 2017 membership registration and pay the $15 fee.  

My daughter is interested in attending day/twilight camp as a program aide (grades 7 & up) – how do I find out about this opportunity? Contact the camp she is interested in signing up for and they can give you specific details.
