When is day camp?

In 2017, Girl Scout day camps throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington will run from June to August. Each camp runs for one week. Specific dates and locations of each day camp will be available on this page by March 1.

When does registration open?

Each day camp sets their own registration open dates, running from February to May. Please check this page beginning March 1, 2017 for specific information about each camp.

When does registration close?

Each day camp sets their own date for closing registration. Many camps close registration once they hit a maximum capacity, so register early! Camps close registration at least one month before camp, but many close much earlier than that.

How do I register for day camp?

Some day camps offer online registration, some offer paper registration, and some offer both! Information about each camp's registration process will be posted to this page as it become available. Questions about a specific camp? We can help! Email us at daycamp@girlscoutsosw.org.

I’m having a problem with online registration. What do I do?

Contact the registrar or the director of the camp. Contact information will beposted to this page as it becomes available. If you do not hear back within five business days, contact daycamp@girlscoutsosw.org.

What forms do I need to fill out for day camp?

If a camp uses online registration, most forms will be completed as part of the registration process. If a camp uses paper forms, they will require the Day Camp Camper Registration Form (#870) and the Day Camp Health History and OTC Medications  Form (#872). Camps may also require additional forms that are specific to the camp or to the program that your  Girl Scout is participating in.

My Girl Scout has special needs. Can she attend day camp?

Reasonable accommodations can be made for girls who are differently abled. Please contact daycamp@girlscoutsosw.org or the day camp director prior to registering to determine what accommodations are necessary and if a specific day camp is the right fit for your Girl Scout.

Who staffs day camps?

Day camps are run entirely by volunteers! Every volunteer is a Girl Scout member, has passed a background check, and has received safety training. Each camp has a volunteer health supervisor who is certified in first aid and CPR or is a trained medical professional.

This sounds fun– can adults come too?
