Is Camp Gallahue taking precautions regarding COVID-19?
Yes, safety is our number one concern. Please refer to the
COVID-19 section of our website for more information.
Is my daughter ready to go to camp?
We have a great tool
that will help you determine what is best for your Girl Scout. Take
readiness quiz to decide if your daughter is ready for an
overnight camp or if day camp might be the best option for her.
Can my Girl Scout attend as an individual?
She doesn't need to have her troop to have a camp adventure! Many
girls visit camp on their own and make brand new friends that stick
with them for life!
Can my Girl Scout bring a buddy?
Girls can bring a buddy from their troop or a friend who is not yet
a Girl Scout. Buddies can be placed together according to program
session, age, and Girl Scout level. During the registration process
you may want to indicate a buddy you know is also signing up for the
same camp session as you. Your buddy should also request you when
registering. Please limit your buddy requests to one buddy. Buddy
requests are accommodated when possible but are not guaranteed.
What if my girl is not a Girl Scout?
You don't have to be a Girl Scout to attend one of our camps.
Whether she's a first-time camper or an experienced adventurer, an
outdoor enthusiast, or a creative artist, your girl will find her
perfect program at one of our camps. For all girls who are not current
Girl Scout members at the time of registration, a non-refundable $35
registration fee will apply.
When does camp registration open?
Registration officially opens January 31 at 9 a.m. Online
reservations will be accepted at that time on a first-come,
first-served basis. Paper and fax registrations may be submitted prior
to January 31; however, placement will not occur until January 31
during regular business hours. Registrations received after January 31
will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
How do I register?

What does my registration include?
Registration fees include a camp experience, camp patch, 2 badges,
and a t-shirt. Plus, your girl will get to make memories that will
last a lifetime!
What if the weather is bad?
While at camp, every counselor is in touch with the camp director
who has access to a weather radio. We will be aware of any storms
headed our way and have procedures in place to protect our campers.
Some activities may be affected by weather, and in this case, refunds
are not issued.
How can I prepare my camper?
It is important for families to talk with their camper about what to
expect at camp this summer. The American Camp Association has great
resources for families available at https://www.acacamps.org/campers-families.
May I visit my camper during camp?
Our camps are not open to parents, family, or other visitors during
camp sessions so that we may provide a safe and secure environment for
all participants. All participants and staff must be registered, and
all adults must have completed background checks prior to the start of
camp. We also offer family camp opportunities (Lead Your Own
Adventure) at Camp Gallahue, see the dropdown above.
We do welcome adult volunteers that are able to work the entire week
their Girl Scout attends camp. We will waive camp fees for your Girl
Scout for working that week. Adult volunteers will be working in our
kitchen and providing food service to our campers.
Can my Girl Scout attend multiple sessions?
There is no limit to the number of sessions each girl may attend
(financial assistance is available for one session only). If attending
multiple sessions, there is no need to submit additional copies of the
health history form.
Is financial assistance available?
Yes, financial assistance is available. Girl Scouts of Central
Indiana is committed to providing a positive experience to every girl
who wants to be a Girl Scout. PAG's are provided so that a family's
economic status will not be a barrier to participation.
To apply, submit the PAG application with your camp registration and
health history form. A $35 deposit per girl is required to secure her
placement. This deposit is not refundable unless your child cannot be
placed into a session. Use a separate grant application per girl.
Please fill out your PAG at the same time as your registration form.
All applicants will be notified by email if their request is approved.
All PAG information is kept strictly confidential. A limited number
of grants are available for one camp session per girl.
When do my camp fees need to be paid?
Full fee must be paid no later than May 31 for all camp dates.
Failure to do so will result in loss of reservation. A minimum $35
deposit is due at the time of registration.
When does registration close?
Registration closes two weeks before the beginning of each camp
session or when the session is full, whichever is first.
What is the refund procedure?
The camp fee does not cover the entire cost of your child attending
camp. The remainder is covered by various funding sources that support
Girl Scouts of Central Indiana. For this reason, the refund policy is:
· Refunds are given only if written cancellation is received
at least two weeks prior to sessions.
· $25 of fee will be retained for handling charges.
· No refunds for family camp.
Refunds are not given for no shows or campers leaving camp early due
to personal reasons including homesickness, sports, family vacations,
behavior, lice, etc.
