Mountaindale West Day Camp’s policy is any camper (girls and PAs) that is accepted into camp with a volunteer, and that volunteer drops out of camp, all campers associated with that adult are also removed from camp. The privilege of registering early and guaranteeing a camper is in camp, is an exchange for the adult fulfilling the promise of helping for the week. If the adult quits (drops out), they did not follow through with their promise to the camp, and as such, everyone from that family will be removed from camp because they were given the special registration time frame.
The Directors of the camp reserve the right to consider a change in this policy if there is a serious injury, illness or family emergency. If you experience such an event, please be sure that the Directors are contacted.
If a camper is not offered a spot at camp, their waitlist request will be held until July 14, 2017 (the Friday before camp week starts) in order to fill any dropped spot that might occur prior to camp.
There is no formal e-mail stating that a camper does not make it into camp since we are holding the waitlist until camp starts.
Did you earn a cookie credit? Did you know that you can use your credits to help pay for camp? Here is what you do:
Register for camp; pay full fee
Write the camper’s name in Sharpie on the cookie credit card. Only the camper named on the cookie credit card can use the credit. The credits are not transferable and cannot be applied to any other family members or friends.
Between April 1, 2017 and July 20, 2017 (Thursday of camp week) mail to the Registrar or hand deliver during camp your cookie credit.
Please include a slip of paper that has the camper's name, the amount of credit on the card and what amount of the card balance you would like to apply towards the camp fee.
Once we have received the cookie credit, the credit will be validated through the Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington and then applied toward your registration fee. A check for the cookie credit amount will be mailed to you once this process has been completed.
Please note – this process could take 1-2 months; depending on our ability to validate the credit.
Send cookie credits to the registrar at the address below.
