Refunds & Cancellations
Requested refunds are up to the discretion of the council (GSVSC staff) based on individual circumstances. Refunds will not be issued less than 30 days prior to the date of the program, event, camp or training, and will not include any processing fees or unrecoverable program expenses incurred by the organizer(s). Refunds will not be issued for fewer than $5; after applicable refund processing fees.
Session 1 and Session 2 content are the same. Girls who register for both sessions will not earn different badges or patches.
Rising first graders may only register for one session.
Rising seventh graders may be offered only one or both sessions depending on interest/enrollment and unit leader availability.
SHDC reserves the right to cancel any event due to low enrollment, inclement weather, or other circumstances which would make the event non-viable. Please note that it is impossible to make up cancelled camp sessions or days due to volunteer availability, so there will not be any makeup or postponed camp sessions/days. If SHDC cancels an event, registrants will be offered as much of a refund as possible based on camp purchases to date, but there may be situations that will allow no refund at all. If an event is cancelled, registered participants will be notified using camp’s phone and/or email notification system. SHDC is not liable for camp cancellations, diversions, or delays which are due to force majeure (i.e.: weather, acts of God, shortages of volunteers, or any other condition beyond SHDC's control).
