Paying for Camp
Participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program
The Girl Scout Cookie Program helps girls learn goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics, but did you know that it can also help send you to camp?
Cookie Cash earned through selling cookies can be used for camp, program events, shop merchandise, membership dues, and approved Girl Scout Silver and Gold Award Projects.
Financial assistance is available for registered members of Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan to girls go to camp. Assistance is awarded based on need and will not exceed $250 per camp season.
Complete and return the Financial Assistance Request Form with your 2014 Resident Camp Registration Form and $50 deposit ($25 of deposit is non-refundable). You will be notified within two weeks of your application being processed.
Deposits & Balance Due
Within two weeks of processing your registration, you will receive a letter or e-mail confirming your placement and a balance-due statement. You may pay your balance with Cookie Cash, Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan gift card, cash, check or credit card. The balance of all camp fees must be paid in full, or payment arrangements made one week (three weeks for travel sessions) prior to the session start date (An unpaid balance will result in the cancellation of your daughter’s registration).
