Two Registration Dates for Sleep-Away Camp Volume

- On January 28, at 10:00 AM registration opens for Camp Winona and Coles Trip.
- On January 30, at 10:00 AM registration opens for Camp Potomac Woods and May Flather.
Our website contains details about each of the sleep-away, day and evening Camp programs as well as dates for par-ent information sessions, financial assistance information and transportation logistics. By mid January, every registered Girl Scout family will receive a camp poster in the mail. The camp flyer includes all of the day and evening camp dates and locations. It also highlights the four sleep-away camp properties and the types of programs being offered. A complete list of all of sleep away camp pro-grams can be found online: http://www.gscnc.org/sleep_away_camp.html.
Before Registering for Camp
Remember, sleep-away camp registration is first-come, first-served. Encourage parents and leaders to up-date their camper accounts now, before registering for camp, to minimize technical difficulties and ensure swift registration. The online system will only allow girls to register for camp programs based on the grade currently listed in their account. If the grade in their account is incorrectly listed, parents will receive an er-ror and be unable to register. For safety reasons, it is critical that the contact information in each account is also updated. The contact information is given to camp staff as emergency contact information; please en-sure its accuracy for girl safety. For detailed instructions on how to update your camper’s account visit: http://www.gscnc.org/SACregister.html
Summer Day & Evening Camp Applications Accepted
Registration opens on February 11. To register and view a list of all day and evening camp offerings visit: http://www.gscnc.org/camping/SDEP.html
