2020 Girl Scout Camp Information

 

We are excited that your girl will be attending camp with us this year. Below you will find some important information and reminders on requirements you need to complete to ensure everything is ready for the first day of camp. Please read this carefully and complete all requirements. We encourage you to read all information on CampDoc.com, online at girlscouts-swtx.org and in the Camp Guide. If you still have questions, contact customercare@girlscouts-swtx.org

CampDoc.com
Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas (GSST) continues to partner with CampDoc.com one again to better serve our campers and staff. You will receive a notification email from CampDoc.com to login and enter or update your camper’s profile information. ALL information must be completed prior to the camp start date.

Save Time and Complete Pre- Check-In!
Save yourself some time and long lines by receiving a quick pass tag before camp! If you complete all information on CampDoc.com for your camper(s) and every form has a green checkmark, you will be able to receive a quick check-in tag from Customer Care. This quick check-in tag will allow you to skip many of the first day check-in requirements. Once you receive a 100% completion, stop by GSSWT Customer Care Center. They will check to ensure all information is complete and issue you 2 check-in tags that will be utilized when checking in/out your Girl Scout from camp (both Camp La Jita and Camp Metro).  If you have a current photo of your camper, please upload it to CampDoc.com or bring to your pre-check-in visit and we can help get it uploaded.

NOTE: You will be asked to upload your camper’s immunization record in CampDoc.com for both GSSWT camps. Also, Camp La Jita campers (only) will need to upload a licensed physician's health examination form. Each camper who attends resident camp must have a record of a health examination given by a licensed physician. You will find other important downloads in CampDoc.com specific to your camp.

 Contact customercare@girlscouts-swtx.org or call 210-349-2404 if you have any questions on CampDoc.com or other camp requirements.
