5 Ways to Make Summer Camp Affordable

March 21, 2016



By Kristi Doebler, Camp Director, Camp Hardee

We all love  going to camp every summer, but sometimes the cost of camp can be hard for a family to cover. There are a few different ways that our Council can help to get a girl to camp, and a few that she and her family can do as well.

1. Get your Early Bird Discount! Save $25 on your camp registration fees simply by registering early! March 31st is the last day to take advantage of our Early Bird pricing. After that, you’ll need to pay full price.

2. Apply for a Campership! A what? Scholarships + Camp = Camperships. We have financial assistance available for any currently register Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines member to apply to our summer camp programming. To apply for financial aid, first register for camp, pay the $75 deposit, and then submit the form. Applications are due on April 1st. Each girl may apply for financial aid for one session, up to $200.

3. Use that Cookie Dough! Cookie Dough earned during the Girl Scout Cookie Sale program may be applied to resident camp sessions, special summer events, trading posts, day camps, and Council sponsored events. The easiest way to apply your Cookie Dough towards these activities is to choose the Camp option on the Superstar Destinations Survey.

4. Work for it! Girls, you can take ownership of your camp experience by helping to contribute to your fees. With your parents’ permission, you can talk with your family, friends, and neighbors to see if there is anything you can help them with to earn some money. Some ideas include walking your neighbor’s dog after school, babysitting for your aunt, or helping a friend’s family clean up their yard.

5. Ask for camp as a gift! When you are making your wish list for birthdays and holidays, add camp to that list. While that toy or game is fun for a few months, your memories for camp will last a lifetime.

We believe camp is for all girls, which is why our team is committed to helping your girl experience the wonders and magic of a summer camp experience. Have questions? Contact us at We can’t wait to see you this summer, it’s going to be a blast!

The Early Bird Catches the Worm – 2014 Registration is Open

April 3, 2013

By Leslie Flood, Chief Business Officer

Wow – the 2014 Early Bird Registration opened on April 2 and we already have Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines troops renewing their memberships.  A big thank you to Troops 864, 1754, 210, 1152 and 1744!

Register Online Now to Receive a $10 Council Gift Card

Early Bird Patch 2013

Early Bird Patch 2013

Each troop that re-registers online by June 20th with at least 5 girl and 2 adult members will receive a $10 Council gift card and Early Bird patches for each girl and leader registering early.

Did you know that we have a new membership fee for 2014? At the 2011 National Council Session in Houston, delegates voted to increase the annual and lifetime membership dues starting with the 2014 membership year. Annual GSUSA dues for girls and adults will be $15.00.

The lifetime membership fee is 25 times the annual fee, so on October 1, 2013, the lifetime fee for adults will be $375. If you are interested in purchasing a lifetime membership, please take advantage of the current fee and save $75.

Lifetime Membership makes a Great Gift!

Lifetime membership is a great gift and a great value for our dedicated Girl Scout Ambassadors. Girl Scouts who will graduate high school this year can purchase a lifetime membership at the reduced rate of $156. Girls also have the option to pay all or part of the reduced lifetime membership fee with their Cookie Dough.

Family Partnership Donation!

Renewal time is Family Partnership donation time. A new feature in CORE now allows you to donate to Family Partnership when you renew your membership.  Thanks for your support!

Whether you register on C.O.R.E.  or by paper, please take time now to renew your membership for the 2014 year! The online process is quick and simple and can be done by the parents (preferred) or through the Troop Management link.  If you have any questions, please contact us at

Troops not using the online registration system can register early too by completing and returning their paper girl and adult registration forms with one troop check per batch.  Troops must submit their paper registrations by June 20 to receive their Early Bird patches.
