Financial FAQ’s

What is included in the camp fee?
Camp fees include all activities, some cooking projects, and all-camp lunch on Friday of camp week, crafts, unit photo, camp t-shirt, fun patch and MORE!!!

Is Transportation to and from camp included in the fee?
Transportation to and from the camp is the responsibility of each family. We do encourage families to carpool.

What is the Camps refund policy?
Refund requests will be honored without question through April 30th. Beginning May 1st we will review requests on a case-by-case basis. If you need to cancel your registration, please contact us as soon as possible.

All requests must be in writing and sent to:
Sonoma Day Camp
P.O. Box 299
El Verano, CA 95433

Is financial aid available?
Limited financial aid is available to families based on need. In order to receive financial aid you must complete a financial aid request form and submit proof of income. For more information see out Registration and Fees page. The deadline to apply is May 15th but you will want to do this sooner than later – trust us!

Can I pay with Cookie Dough/Credit or Fall Product Credit?
Yes, you can pay for your camp fees with GSNC Cookie Credit or Fall Product Credit. You must submit your credit card along with your application and be able to tell us the balance on the card. We will work with the Council office to have those funds applied to your campers fee.

***Please note that once the card has been processed for the use towards camp fees they can NOT be refunded. If you qualify for a full refund you will only be given a refund for the fee you paid minus the cookie/fall credit rewards.

When is my FULL payment due?
FULL Payment is due in full by the May 1st deadline. If payment is not received by May 1st, we will presume that you have decided not to send your daughter to camp. Her spot will be given to a camper on the waiting list.

Does Sonoma Day Camp accept Credit Card payments?
No, sorry. At this time we are not able to accept credit card payments – only cash or check. It is our hope that in future summers we will be able to add this feature for your convenience.

Who do we make the check out to?
All check payments should be made payable to: Girl Scouts

Where do I send my payment?
Camp deposits and those wishing to have the highest priority of getting their camper into camp and want to pay in full right away should plan on bringing full payment or at the very least their deposit to one of the Priority Registration Events in February. If you miss those events or need to send in the Final payment owed, it should be sent to: Sonoma Day Camp, P.O. Box 299, El Verano, CA 95433

My check cleared the bank, does that mean my camper was accepted?
ALL checks will be deposited as they are received and the clearing of your check from your bank account does NOT mean that you Scout has been accepted into the program.  If your camper does not make it into the program after the May 15th placements have been made you will be notified and a refund check will be mailed out immediately.
