What will my camper eat while at camp?
We provide well balanced, kid-friendly meals three times a day
and always have snacks should a camper need one in between meals.
What if my camper has dietary restrictions?
When you are registering your camper for camp, make sure that
you note any dietary restrictions and food allergies in the
registration form. We often have campers who are vegetarian, vegan,
gluten-free, lactose intolerant and much more. We always make sure to
have food that suits every camper and staff's needs.
How should I prepare my camper for their first week of camp?
Help prepare your camper to care for herself by having her
spend a weekend with a friend or relative. Talk about and practice
self-care. Examples of this would be taking a shower by themselves,
brushing their teeth, brushing their hair, putting on deodorant, etc.
You can also find more information on being a first time camper here.
What happens if my camper has lice?
At check-in, your camper will be screened for lice/nits.
Campers will not be allowed to stay if they have lice/nits and
parents/guardians are responsible for treatments. No refunds are given
for lice/nits. Girls may return to camp after receiving treatment at
home and, if found to be lice/nit free, may then join camp.
Can I call my camper while they are at camp?
Campers are not allowed to receive or make phone calls while at
camp. If there is a problem or if your camper is not adjusting well, a
Camp Administrator will contact you.
Where can I send mail to my camper?
You can send mail to your camper to their camp location! Please
be sure to address the mail as below so that it is easier for us to
get mail to your camper:
Camper Program (i.e.
The Camp's Address
City, State and Zip Code
Camp addresses can be found here.
You can also drop mail off at check-in so your camper receives a
letter in the first few days. If campers would like to send letters
home while they are at camp, we suggest you send her with pre-stamped
and addressed stationary.
Can I send my camper e-mails during their camp session?
You can send your camper e-mails through our one way e-mail
system at camp! Each day, at a specified time, the camp staff will
print your e-mails out and deliver them to your camper. This is a one
way system, however, so while you can send them e-mails, they will not
be able to respond!
Can I see pictures of my camper while they're at camp?
Yes! We have a photojournalist that travels around camp and
takes photographs of all of the girls doing activities each day. We
will then post them to a site where you will be able to see pictures

Does my camper have to be a Girl Scout to attend camp?
You do not have to be a currently registered Girl Scout to
participate in our programs. However, non-registered girls will be
registered as Girl Scouts for $25. Registering as a Girl Scout means
you will have access to all of the programs offered throughout the
year, and you will be the first to hear about camp next year.
Do you provide scholarships for camp?
We want every girl to be able to attend camp regardless of
their financial situation. Camperships are available to currently
registered Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont members who have
participated in either the Fall Product or cookie program this year.
If there are any incomplete parts of the application, it will be
returned to the applicant and must be sent back before the deadline.
Any delay in this process may impact the opportunity to be considered
Camperships may be applied toward resident or day camp sessions at
Camp Pisgah, Camp Ginger Cascades or Keyauwee Program Center
Campership applications for members of the same household must be
filled out separately and turned in at the same time.
Campers will only be considered for a campership for one session of camp.
Families will receive an e-mail the first week of April letting them
know the status of the scholarship application. Families that receive
a campership will need to sign the acceptance letter and return within
10 business days to receive the funding.
Girls will be required to submit a letter to the council by
September 15, following their summer camp session, telling the
scholarship committee about their experience at camp. If a girl fails
to submit this letter, she will not be eligible for a campership the

family, the deposit is retained. If the council must cancel a
program, the deposit is refunded or may be transferred to another
program. Deposits are not transferable to another camper, other than
- If the council cancels a program due to low
enrollment, a full refund will be issued, including the $50 deposit.
Full refunds are also made for girls who cannot be placed in one of
their choices and choose not to accept a different session. Deposits

- In the case of a camper’s illness, a refund, less the
deposit may be made if cancellation is submitted prior to the first

participate in camp must be submitted with a written request from
the parent/guardian. The request must be submitted no later than two
weeks after the start of the missed session.
- No refunds
will be made within four weeks of a session’s start date except for
medical reasons as indicated previously.
- No refunds are
given for campers who choose to leave sessions early or who are
asked to leave due to behavior issues.
What is the transfer policy for camp sessions?
Due to the work involved in changing a camper’s session, there
is a $15/session change fee, unless the council has to cancel a
program and a camper changes sessions as a result.
Can my camper bring a friend to camp?
Girls will have many opportunities to make new friends during
their time at camp and coming on their own is always an exciting
adventure. However, some girls prefer to attend with a close friend.
Two girls wishing to attend camp as buddies must provide that
information in their registration. Space is provided to indicate one
friend’s name, and both buddies must request each other. We cannot
accommodate more than one buddy combination per girl. Cabin/tent
assignments will be honored for one buddy only.
What activities can my camper participate in?
Each camp has various activities that girls can participate in.
Most of these include the climbing wall, archery, boating (canoeing,
kayaking or paddle boating), hiking, arts and crafts, daily swimming
(weather dependent), outdoor cooking, team building activities,
Congdon Adventure Park (Keyauwee Program Center only) and many more!
What happens if my camper gets homesick?
Homesickness is a very real and natural emotion when anyone
leaves a familiar family surrounding. Counselors are trained to deal
with homesick campers and help them adjust to camp. Campers are
encouraged to try new activities and adjust to camp during the first
48 hours. In cases of extended homesickness, the Camp Director or a
member of the Camp Leadership Team will contact parents to discuss
steps to help the camper. Should the family decide to pick the camper
up early, no refunds will be issued.
It is helpful if parents discuss homesickness with their campers
before they attend camp so that campers already know what they might
experience. We find it beneficial to help your camper find tips and
tricks that work for them- for example: writing letters home,
bringing a favorite stuffed animal or bringing family pictures to keep
in their unit.
What if my camper doesn't feel well while at camp?
They will see our health supervisor to determine what the issue
may be. If the issue persists, a member of the camp team will call the
family to let them know what is happening and to decide the best
course of action.
What if my camper takes medication?
We have a health supervisor who will dispense medication to
campers according to the labeled directions unless we receive a note
from your physician. All medications must be in its original
packaging. This includes all over-the-counter medications, vitamins
and topical creams.
Can my Girl Scout use Cookie Dough, Daisy Dollars or Nut Bucks to
pay for camp?
Yes, we have a form that you can fill out to pay for camp using
these P2P monies.
What do I do if there are no spots available in my preferred program?
You can join the waitlist for your preferred program at no
cost! We recommend registering for your second choice program, just in
case no spots become available in the preferred program. If a spot
becomes available, we will reach out to members of the waitlist in the
order they registered, and we can transfer payment over to the
How are camp staff trained?
Staff go through 14 days of staff training. Our staff are
trained and certified in all of our activities and on any and all
topics that may arise during camp, such as senstitive issues,
What should I do if I need to pick up my camper early?
If you need to pick-up your camper early, this is not a
problem. Please let camp staff know during check-in.
