Financial Assistance

Deadline to Apply for Financial Assistance: June 1

Any girl who is a registered Girl Scout living in one of the 19 GSNorCal counties is eligible to receive financial assistance for 1 session of any resident camp or up to 2 sessions of a volunteer-run day camp per year!

Assistance is awarded based on available funds and financial need, which GSNorCal determines based on family size and annual household income. You must submit proof of income from all sources with your application.

  1. Register for camp and pay your deposit.

    If you register online, you'll need a credit card and at least a $150 deposit for each girl-only session and/or a $50 deposit per person for family camp programs.

    To register by mail, fax, or in-person: fill out the paper registration form (PDF) and send your forms and deposits to:

    Attn: Camp Registration
    Girl Scouts of Northern California
    1310 South Bascom Avenue
    San Jose, CA 95128

    Fax: 408-287-8662

    We require a $150 deposit to hold your camp spot while we process your application for financial assistance. If the deposit is a barrier to registration, please email us.

    If you submit the $150 deposit and we do not award the full amount of financial assistance that you requested, you may cancel your camp reservation and request the return of your deposit. Your refund request must be submitted in writing by August 31 to registration@gsnorcal.org.

  2. Complete the financial assistance form.

    Fill out the camp financial assistance form (PDF) and submit it with your proof of income to GSNorCal by mail or fax:

    Attn: Camp Registration
    Girl Scouts of Northern California
    1310 South Bascom Avenue
    San Jose, CA 95128

    Fax: 408-287-8662

  3. Prepare for camp!

    Our goal is to provide an answer to you within 7 business days from when we receive your complete application (including registration, deposit, and verification of income from all sources), about whether you have been awarded financial assistance and, if so, how much.

    While you wait, it's time to prepare for camp!

For your security, do not include your credit card number when faxing a registration form. We will contact you by telephone to request your credit card information. Your registration will not be entered until your credit card information has been received and processed. Placement is not guaranteed. A full refund will be given if a camper is not registered in any program.
