We firmly believe that every girl who wants to attend camp should attend camp, so we encourage you to consider applying for financial aid. Don't let anything stand in the way of a summer filled with friendship, fun and new-found confidence. All girls are welcome to attend camp without regard to race, color, religion, national origin or socio-economic status.
Thanks to the generosity of individuals, civic organization and foundations, financial aid to attend a GSSNE summer camp program – day or overnight – is available for girls who, without this assistance, would not be able to attend Girl Scout camp. Families applying for financial aid should expect to pay as much as they possibly can.
Click here for the form you'll need to apply for financial assistance; we encourage you to explore this option if you could use some help to pay for camp! Haga clic aquí para obtener una solicitud de asistencia financiera en Español.

Complete applications may be mailed to GSSNE, 500 Greenwich Ave, Warwick, RI 02886. Financial aid applications are evaluated on a rolling basis. Questions? Call us at 401.331.4500 or 800.331.0149 and ask for a camp registrar to assist you.
