VOLUNTEER RUN COMMUNITY CAMP REGISTRATION

FALL + COOKIE REWARDS = CAMP!

Girls can earn Fall Sale Rewards or Cookie Rewards to pay for all or part of their camp registration through the Girl Scouts of Northern California Product Sale programs. Reference the Fall Sale and Cookie Sale order cards for the details and have your Girl Scout talk with her troop regarding their girl and troop rewards plan choice. The girl and troop rewards plan choice is a decision made by the girls for the entire troop.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE INSTRUCTIONS

Any girl who lives within Girl Scouts of Northern California’s jurisdiction is eligible to apply for financial help to attend Girl Scout camps in Northern California. Girls who live outside of this Council must contact their local Girl Scout Council for financial aid information. Girls must be registered Girl Scouts by April 15. DEADLINE: Financial Aid requests must be submitted no later than May 15. Financial aid decisions are not made until camp placement has been confirmed. Families may request financial assistance for one session of any resident camp OR no more than two sessions of a Volunteer Run day camp. All information is confidential. To apply for financial aid:

Complete the financial aid and the camp registration forms in this brochure or on the website at camprocks.org. Note: the camp registration form and financial aid form are two separate forms and are processed separately.

List the name of camp, program, and fee for which assistance is being requested on the financial aid form.

Girls or families must pay at least the deposit for their camp session. Should the financial aid amount requested not be fully granted and applicant chooses to cancel their registration, a refund of the deposit will be allowed. In such case, a refund request must be submitted in writing by August 31.

Financial aid is based on need and this must be clearly demonstrated on the form. The Council takes into account income level, family size, and a detailed explanation of circumstances when granting financial assistance.

Documentation that verifies income level must be provided with the form (i.e. paycheck stub, tax return, unemployment check receipt, etc.)

Incomplete forms or those missing proof of income will not be reviewed.
