Crossroads 2016 will be held July 18-23, 2016 in Oakton, VA. Camp Crossroads is one of many camps run by volunteers for the Girl Scout Council of the Nation's Capital.

 

Application Dates:  Lottery applications for campers and OWLs (AITs) will be accepted on GSCNC's registration site beginning February 10th through March 11th. Notification will be on March 16th. See our Registration Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Adult & Teen Staff applications will be accepted on the Camp Crossroads website from January 18th-February 12th. Notification will be on February 21th. Click on the Volunteer button to learn more.

Helping Hands (part-time adults) applications will be accepted on the Camp Crossroads website from February 8th-February 27th. Notification will be on March 9th. Click on the Volunteer button to learn more.

Placement:  Camp Crossroads uses a lottery system for placement. Applications are accepted on GSCNC's online registration system between February 10th and March 6th. All applications received during this period will have an equal chance in the lottery. Your daughter can skip the lottery when a parent volunteers. Camp Crossroads uses a variety of full-time and part-time volunteers. Children of volunteers skip the lottery. Click on the Volunteer button to learn more.

 

Wait List:  If your daughter is put on the wait list, you'll receive a number telling you where she is for her particular program. Of course we have no way of predicting how many girls will withdraw. Four weeks before camp, if your daughter is still on the wait list, we will notify GSCNC and ask GSCNC to issue a refund. You can also contact us at any time and ask to be removed from the wait list and receive a refund. If we can't place her, you will receive a full refund. After May 15th, if we place her and you withdraw, you will not receive a refund.

We give priority placement to the daughters of the volunteers who work at Camp Crossroads.

We’re sorry if it sounds unfair but most GSCNC’s day camps are volunteer run. Without the volunteers camp doesn’t happen. It's pretty hard to get people to agree to volunteer to work at the camps unless their own daughter gets to attend!

 

Tax Documentation for 2015:  Did your daughter attend Camp Crossroads 2015 and you need a letter for tax purposes? (Child care credit, flexible spending account, etc.). The letter must come from the Girl Scout Council. To request a letter, click here. Allow two weeks for processing.
