How to pay for summer camp for your girl

We believe every girl should have the opportunity to experience camp and shouldn’t be excluded from this for any reason. Because of this, we have camperships and grants that allow our girls to attend camp without the potential financial burden.

Recently, WKBW spoke to a former camper, our Director of Camp Administration, and CEO about Girl Scout summer camp and our financial aid options. Check out the video below to learn more and contact Customer Care at customercare@gswny.org or 1-888-837-6410 to learn more today.

Camp Financial Aid Deadline is Approaching

We believe in the benefits of camping for your girl, like providing her opportunities to develop and improve her leadership skills and educate her about acceptance and tolerance. Because of this, we want to provide every opportunity we can to get her there.

Financial assistance is available for all who fill out an online camp application. You can begin the process by going online to register here. As a reminder, our camperships are meant to assist you, not cover the entire cost.

Once you fill out an application, you will be asked to complete the Financial Aid – Household Income Information section, including how much you plan to be able to contribute. We provide a section for you to explain why you’re asking for assistance in as much detail as possible. You’ll also be required to submit income verification documents.

Please remember all of what you submit is confidential and we will never share your story with anyone else.

Other than the income requirements, there are a few considerations to remember:

  • Your girl must be a registered member of Girl Scouts of Western New York
  • Your application is due by June 1
  • You must be caught up on all your payments for cookies, QSP merchandise, programs, and prior years camp fees

We look forward to seeing your girl at camp!
