What's New This Year?
Online Health Records
GSSJC is proud to announce that we are improving the registration experience using a new registration platform for all 2019 summer camp programs, meaning all the forms you had to print out and bring to check in are a thing of the past! Parents and caregivers will be able to complete all health forms online using a personal computer, tablet or phone—no paper to bring to check in!
New and Improved Programming
Camp staff has reviewed the programming at each of GSSJC’s three summer resident camps and based on lots of data, like girl interest, camper evaluations and camp industry best practices, have streamlined sessions to focus on each camp’s area of excellence. This will allow each camper to have a rich, skill-building experience while she explores a specialty area, along with allowing her more time during the day to explore her chosen interests. Camp Agnes Arnold will focus on outdoor skills and adventures, and canoeing progression. Camp Casa Mare’s focus will be on sailing progression, and STEM and art skill-building. Camp Misty Meadows will focus on enriching, progressive equestrian programs, and sports enjoyment and skill-building.
New Trading Post Procedures
Each overnight camper will have a $10 Trading Post allowance included in their session fee. This will eliminate the uncertainty of picking an amount during registration and ensure every camper gets an equal Trading Post experience. Our Trading Post offerings will still be the camp souvenir shop, but realigned to sync with the new amount for each camper. (Due to the design of the programs and to keep costs low, Trading Post is not available for CIT and Aide sessions, and is also not available for adult registrations.)
Camp Pack Delivery
Camp Packs will now be delivered to your camper during check in at her session! No more shipping fees or waiting for the camp pack to be delivered. Simply order a camp pack during the registration process and pick it up at camp during check in.
Cancellation/Additional Health Insurance Protection Plans
Our new registration platform, in addition to the added benefit of online health forms, also provides parents and caregivers the option of purchasing a protection plan. What is a protection plan? A protection plan is additional insurance for the camper—should you need to cancel your camper’s session less than four weeks before camp starts, should your camper need to leave camp early for any reason, or should your camper have any medical expenses while at camp, the protection plan will be the first-payer coverage for any of those options. Plans are affordable and a one-time payment during registration. (Please note: GSSJC does not sell or provide these plans - these plans are available from a third-party vendor. Protection plans are not refundable by GSSJC.)
