Financial Assistance

We are committed to ensuring all girls have the opportunity to participate in Girl Scout Summer Camp. In order to remove financial barriers that may interfere, we offer limited funds to help members who would be unable to join in Summer Camp activities without financial support from our Council.

GSCSNJ encourages all girls and adults who need assistance paying for Summer Camp to complete the Financial Assistance process. Non-Girl Scout family members attending Family Camping (i.e. parents, young siblings, and boys) can also apply for Financial Assistance.

Special consideration is given to families impacted by COVID-19.

Financial Assistance Details

Financial assistance is available to girls who otherwise would not be able to attend camp.

  • Financial assistance is available only to girls living in one of Girl Scouts of Central & Southern NJ's communities.
  • Financial assistance is available on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are exhausted.
  • Girls applying for assistance are asked to complete the Financial Aid forms and wait for a response BEFORE registering for a week of camp. 
  • You will not be reimbursed for items previously purchased or money spent before financial assistance is approved.
  • Campers applying for financial assistance do not need to be Girl Scouts, but must register as a member for financial assistance to be awarded
