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!
