Refunds and Cancellations
Girl Scouts of Greater Mississippi reserves the right to cancel or reschedule an event for lack of registrants, inclement weather, or situations beyond the council's control, and only those registered will be notified. If an event is canceled and event registrations have already been accepted, the program department will notify the contact person listed on the registration form and process a refund. If a participant chooses to cancel their registration for an event, written notice of cancellation must be received by GSGMS NO LESS than 10 business days prior to the event date in order to receive a refund. There will be no refunds given for events costing less than $5. There will be a cancellation fee of $5 on all events costing more than $5. No refunds are given for failing to attend the event.
For Trips and Travel Programs: Initial deposits for all trips and travel programs are non-refundable. Written cancellation for trips or travel programs must be received no less than 90 days prior to departure. No fees will be refunded within 90 days of departure.
For Summer Camp: Partial refunds (less $50 cancellation fee) may be given in some instances and are considered on a case by case basis. Written requests for a refund must be received by the council at least three weeks prior to the opening day of the session. A partial refund (less $50 cancellation fee) may be secured if the council receives a written certificate from a licensed M.D. stating she is unable to attend her camp session or if there is a family emergency.
No refund will be given if a camper is sent home due to unacceptable behavior or homesickness. Full refunds will only be issued for sessions canceled by the council.
