Q: How will my child be supervised?
A: Camp professionals are trained to supervise campers to make sure they are properly fitted for a life jacket, but also making sure they are changing their clothes every day, drinking water, and applying sunscreen. Girl Scouts places a high priority on safety and train staff in all aspects of camp life.

Q: How is camp staff selected and screened?
A: Camp staff includes homegrown Girl Scouts who have many years of experience in scouting, as well as students from local universities. After references are verified, all counselors are required to have an interview with the Camp Director. All staff must pass a criminal background check. The most important trait we are looking for in our camp staff is the desire to create a lasting experience for your daughter.

Q: How will I communicate with her at camp?
A: In general, we work to promote independence and group cohesion in campers for discouraging telephone contact. We ask that all cell phones remain at home. The Camp Director will contact the guardian if a camper is having trouble adjusting to camp life after 24 hours onsite or if there is a health concern. Parents may virtually visit their camper daily by viewing photos on a website operated by an outside source at no charge. Campers also love “real” letters and care packages mailed to them during their stay.

Q: What if she has special needs?
A: In order to lay the foundation for success, parents and Camp Directors must partner in sharing information about your daughter’s health history. While Girl Scout camp can accommodate 95% of all girls, the other 5% require a different environment with staff trained to meet their needs. With this in mind, please contact camp@gsgatl.org prior to registration if you question whether your daughter’s needs can be met at our camp. If this isn’t the best camp environment for success, we will assist you in the search for a camp setting that is setup to provide a great experience for your daughter.

Q: How will my daughter's special dietary needs be handled?
A: We can accommodate for a variety of special dietary needs. Examples of ones we accommodate for regularly are nut free, gluten free, no pork, no seafood/fish, vegetarian, lactose free, and no red meats. If you have a camper with more extensive allergies or combination allergies such as no wheat/egg/dairy we might ask you to bring items that are safe for her to consume.
Dietary restrictions must be on your camper’s health history and email the camp director as well. It is also a good idea to communicate with the camp prior to your campers arrival. We ask this be done via email/phone at least 2 weeks prior to her arrival. We appreciate parents that touch base with us prior or immediately following the registration of camp to make sure we are all on the same page if the allergy is complicated.
The most important thing to ensure the camp can accommodate your camper’s food restrictions is to communicate with them directly.

Q: What if the pick up or drop off times do not work for us?
A: Sleepaway campers
Scheduled drop off and pick up times are listed in your ‘What to Expect Packet’. If you need to arrive later then the scheduled time contact the camp director 1 week prior to the start of her camp session and let them know what time she will be arriving.,br> While camp staff are preparing for your camper she will not be able to arrive prior to the start of the published arrival time.
If you need to pick up your camper prior to the stated pick up time, let the camp director know when you drop her off. There is no late pick up options.

Q: Can my camper have a buddy at camp?
A: Campers are welcome to sign up for camp with a friend or two who are within one grade of each other and interested in the same session of camp. If camp buddies are different grades (for example: fourth and fifth grade), they will be placed in a living unit based on the younger camper’s grade.
Even the best of friends need time to explore their individual interests and make new friends while at camp. Camp buddies stay in the same cabin, but may or may not select the same camp activities. Campers registered for horseback riding are grouped according to riding skills, camp buddies in the riding program may be at different skill levels and may not be placed in the same riding period. If they choose different activities or are placed in different activities due to horseback riding, they will still be together again in the cabin, during unit time, at meals and all-camp activities.
Many girls come to camp without a buddy. Camp is a wonderful place for girls to make new friends. Our annual outcome survey of campers tells us that 99% of girls make new friends at camp.

Tier A Pricing
The actual cost for each girl to attend camp. This includes costs like program supplies, staffing, training, insurance, certification, and inspection fees, food, and maintenance costs.

Tier B Pricing
Camp fee that is much lower than the true cost of camp. These rates are subsidized through fundraising, special events, and the hard work of Girl Scouts during the Cookie Program.

What is Tier Pricing
We believe that every girl, regardless of financial circumstances, should have the opportunity to experience camp. To keep camp affordable for all families, we’ve adopted a voluntary tiered pricing structure.

While the cost to maintain our outdoor properties and create inspirational programming continues to rise, we understand that families have differing abilities to meet those costs. Tiered pricing gives families the opportunity to choose which option works best for them. All campers will have the same experience regardless.
