How to Register for Camp Blue Bay

Online Summer Camp Registration

In our continuing effort to provide the best possible experience for our campers and staff, Girl Scouts of Nassau County is expanding our partnership with CampDoc.com.

CampDoc.com offers online registration in addition to our current electronic health record system for camp. Their system will help us consolidate and integrate camper registration and health information into a centralized and secure location.

The security, confidentiality and privacy of your camper’s personal health information will always be protected. Only Girl Scouts of Nassau County camp health staff will have access to camper health information, and the CampDoc.com site is secure, encrypted and password protected.

Once you sign up for a CampDoc.com account, you will be able to register your camper, select a session and pay online. Once registered you will receive additional information about how to complete your camper’s health profile.  We are excited to continually evolve, building safer, more productive and more efficient systems to create the best experience for you and your family! We can’t wait to see you this summer.

Financial Assistance - If you need financial assistance and reside in Nassau County, please be sure to check the appropriate box during the registration process. Once registration is complete, information and an application will be sent to you.  If the award granted does not meet your needs, your deposit will be returned to you.

Health Information - Camp Blue Bay and Summer Fun Campers are required to have a

Health Examination Form including physical and immunization dates to be completed by a physician.

Parents will need to upload the forms and complete a health history online using Campdoc.com.

Camp Policies

Expectations
A Camper Code of Conduct is included with the registration process. Please review the camp guidelines with your camper before registering, so everyone understands the expectations. Both parent/guardian and camper signatures are required on this document to register for camp. Note: Our camp is an electronic free zone!

Refund Policy
The $50 per session deposit will not be refunded or transferred after camp registration is confirmed. The balance of the fee will be refunded only if the camper does not attend due to illness or injury that is confirmed by physician’s letter. No refunds will be made if a camper cancels, arrives late, leaves early or does not attend the entire session for any reason.

Lottery
All registrations received on or before February 8, 2016 are eligible for placement by lottery. After February 8, 2016 applications will be processed in the order received. Plan to register early as some sessions fill very quickly.
