Cookie Dough

Girls who participated in the Girl Scout Cookie Program may have Cookie Dough available that can be attributed to the balance. If you wish to use cookie dough to complete your deposit, requests can be made to customercare@gssc-mm.org or by calling 800-849-4475. It's important to know that the best way to secure your spot is to complete your registration and deposit online. Requests for registrations to be completed with Cookie Dough will be processed in the order received, but spaces cannot be held and may no longer be available.

Deposit

Each camp session requires a non-refundable deposit at the time of registration and will be applied to your session cost. Deposits cannot be transferred to another camper. A $50 nonrefundable deposit is required for all camp programs. Exceptions may apply to short-week programs.

Health Information

Scholarships

Thank you for your interest in camp scholarships. Our hope is that every girl has an opportunity to attend summer camps to make lifelong memories and friends. Camp scholarships are available for girls attending summer camps at The Cathy Novinger Girl Scout Leadership Center, Camp Mary Elizabeth, and Camp WaBak. 

Your girl must be an active Girl Scout member to apply for a camp scholarship for summer camps. To be considered for a scholarship, all applicants must register for camp and pay the $50 deposit. Scholarships are available based on financial need and may cover partial or full costs of camp, minus the $50 deposit fee. Only completed applications will be considered for scholarships. Completion of application does not guarantee scholarship funding. 

Applicants will be notified of camperships by March 31, 2022. If funds remain available, a second notification of camperships will be sent to applicants before camps begin in June 2022. Please note, any remaining Cookie Dough credit must be used towards camp programs before scholarship funds may be provided.

Apply here.

Waitlist

When a camp is full, a link to a waitlist form will be provided in the session description. Please fill out this form. If a spot becomes available, you will be contacted and will have 48 hours to complete registration and payment.
