Who can attend day camp?
Girls served by the Greater Rochester or Assisi Service Units, entering grades 1-6 this fall are welcome to attend. Day camp is open to all girls regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, ability, or socio-economic status. Girls entering grades 7–12 are welcome to come to day camp as Cadettes earning their Leadership in Action (LIA) Award or as Program Aides.
How do I register?
Registration begins April 15th and will remain open until day camp is full or until July 1st. A complete registration includes all documents as listed at the top of the Registration Form as found on the Forms page. You may register multiple campers with a single check. Checks should be made payable to Rochester Day Camp. Send your registration early, as day camp will be filled on a first-come, first served basis!
Registrations should be sent to:
Rochester Day Camp
2216 – 21st Ave. SE
Rochester, MN 55904
How much does day camp cost?
Day camp fees are $100.00 for campers, or $50.00 for siblings, with a $5 discount for Early Bird Registration (postmarked by May 31st). A $10 non-refundable deposit is required with registration to hold a place at camp. Please note: A place at camp will be held only when ALL required forms as well as the $10 non-refundable deposit are received by the camp registrar by June 24th. The remaining fee ($85-$90 for campers, or $35-$40 for siblings) needs to be paid in full by July 1st. Please make checks payable to “Rochester Day Camp” and send payment (check, money order, unexpired Fall FUNds, Juliette Proceed Credits, or Cookie Credits) with your registration.
At this time, payment by credit/debit card is not available.
Each full-time adult volunteer receives half-off of one camper registration. Full-time Cadettes earning their LIA, or older girls who are working as Program Aides do not pay a registration fee and receive a free camp t-shirt.
Is financial assistance available?
“Grants for Girls” fund assistance is available. Please contact us or click on the following link for more information:
Can I Use Cookie Credits, Fall FUNds or Juliette Proceed Credits?
Yes! You may use unexpired cookie credits, Fall FUNds and/or Juliette Proceed Credits. Please include them with your final payment.
Do I need to be a registered Girl Scout to attend day camp?
Yes! Girls not currently registered can register and join Girl Scouts at the same time they register for day camp for an additional $15.00 fee. Financial Assistance is available for registration by checking the box in the permission section on this form.
Can I come to day camp with a friend?
Yes! Two friends may register together as “buddies” and will be placed in a unit together for the week. A single two-girl pair only, please!
What if I have to cancel?
Refund requests will be honored without question through July 1st. Beginning July 2nd, requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. If you need to cancel your registration, please contact the registrar as soon as possible.
What is the Sibling Unit?
The sibling unit is for potty-trained, preschool-aged children, both male and female, of full-time adult volunteers. It is intended to give parents a way to volunteer without having to find alternate childcare for their younger children.
*If you have two girls who are both Girl Scouts, they would each register as a camper, NOT one as a camper and the other as a sibling.
