Registration for sessions can be done online – online registration -
or through regular mail. We recommend online registration because our placements are done on a first come first serve basis.
With online registration, you can check availability and you will know instantly if your daughter has made it into the session or will need to be placed on the wait list.
If you would like to register through the mail, please use the registration form found at www.gssjc.org/residentcamp under the forms section.
Your registration includes the camp session activities, a camp T-shirt and patch (both given at camp on the last day). You may also choose to pre-pay your Trading Post or Ship Store (camp store) allowance upon registration.
Girl Scout camp is a recreational and educational program where understanding a camper's special needs in advance helps to ensure a positive experience. We encourage girls with disabilities to attend camp. Call 713-292-0224 to discuss your daughter's needs and how we can best accommodate her stay at camp.
Those registering online will receive immediate confirmation to their listed email address. Those registering via mail (registration form available at www.gssjc.org/residentcamp/forms.htm) will receive an email confirmation once their registration has been processed. This could take up to five business days after it is received at the main GSSJC office.
A $50 deposit per session is required for all registrations with the exception of those requesting a full campership. (See page 4 for more details on camperships). You are free to make payments at any time on your camp balance. Payment in full is due no later than April 30, 2013.
After the due date, we will send an invoice to each registrant’s address on file noting any remaining balance. Some of our sessions are quite popular and do draw large waiting lists. After April 30, we reserve the right to place someone on the waiting list in your space if you have not paid your balance.
Once you register, you are free to make layaway payments to your account as often as you’d like. Payments can be sent to: GSSJC Resident Camp Registrars, 3110
Southwest Freeway, Houston, Texas 77098.
Layaway payments cannot be made online.
Please make sure to note the camper's name, week and session on the check so payments are properly credited. There is no limit on the number of payments you make to your account; however, we ask that each payment be a minimum of $10. The April 30 payment due date still applies to those taking advantage of our layaway option.
***All registrations made after
April 30, 2013 must be paid in full.
**Please note that all registration confirmations and camp communications are sent via email. We use the email address that is noted on your Council file. Please make sure you are using a valid email address to avoid missing any important information and reminders that may be sent out before camp. Any changes to your current email address on file can be made online via the "My Account" tab.
