Attendees to all Girl Scouts River Valleys events are expected to follow the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Girls and adults cannot bring or use weapons, alcoholic beverages, drugs (other than those prescribed by a physician), or tobacco products at any River Valleys event or onto any River Valleys property.
If, for any reason, an attendee’s behavior is not within our expectations, she/he will be asked to leave as soon as possible. We will expect a parent/guardian to pick up a girl as soon as possible, and adults will need to provide their own transportation. This is at the expense of the parent/guardian or adult attendee. We will not refund session fees.
Pets are not allowed on any River Valleys property or camp. Exceptions are made for service animals.
Outdoor events are usually held “rain or shine,” so dress/pack appropriately for the weather and season. Please see our Packing Lists for a complete list of items you’ll need.
River Valleys occasionally cancels an event due to severe weather. If a program event is canceled, you will be notified as soon as possible. Please feel free to call River Valleys’ main line at 800-845-0787 for updates or with questions relating to severe weather.
River Valleys Cancellations
All camp sessions are subject to cancellation or rescheduling by River Valleys. If a session is canceled by River Valleys, and the camper is unable to attend an alternate session, all fees will be refunded, including any deposit made. If a program is canceled, you will be notified by phone.
Customer Cancellations and Transfer Requests
Registrants can cancel or transfer to another camp session up to 30 days before their camp session. To transfer or cancel your camp session and receive a refund (less the nonrefundable deposit), we must receive written or verbal notice at least 30 days prior to the start of your camp session.
Refunds will be issued in the same form as they were paid (i.e. check, cash, credit card, Cookie Credits, or Fall FUNds). Registrants must be paid in full 30 days prior to camp. Refunds will not be issued for cancellations received less than 30 days prior to a camp session. Exceptions may be considered for emergency situations only.
Cancellations Due to Illness or Communicable Disease
Requests for refunds (less applicable non-refundable deposit) or transfers for girls or adults who have a communicable illness or medical emergency will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us with any questions.
Cancellations Due to Lice
Please check your camper for lice before coming to camp. All overnight camp participants are screened for lice upon arrival at camp or at the bus stop. Any individual found to have lice will be required to leave camp. Individuals are allowed to return to camp after 24 hours if they are found to be lice-free. There are no partial refunds for days missed. If an individual is unable to attend camp because of lice, their registration may be transferred to another applicable camp session if one is available. No refunds will be issued if another session cannot be determined.
You can learn more about lice at headlice.org.
Partial Session Attendance
Camp registration fees are not pro-rated for any reason. If a girl or adult is only able to attend a portion of camp due to lice, illness, or other unforeseen circumstances, they will still be charged the full camp registration fee.
Participants are responsible for all items brought to events or camps. Neither Girl Scouts River Valleys nor the camp can be held responsible for the loss or damage to a participant’s personal belongings. It is best to have your name on all items. Any items left behind will be kept at camp for one month and then donated to a local charity.
Please check in with your camp’s director before bringing any personal sports equipment to camp or adult trainings.
