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.


Get Ready to Enter the Lottery:  In order to enter your daughter into our lottery you will log on to your GSCNC Online Registration account during the lottery period. Unfortunately, if you have problems with this system, we can't help you. As volunteers, we don't have any special magic that will fix problems with your account. You'll have to contact Council for help. The best thing you can do is to log on to your account right now to make sure it's all squared away. Click here to go to the Registration System.
