Cancellations and Refunds
If the council cancels an activity or event for any reason, troops or families will receive a full refund. Programs may be cancelled due to low enrollment. If a program does not meet the minimum girls required by the registration close date, the program will be cancelled. Participants will be notified of the cancellation via email on the Monday prior to the program. Council events and activities run rain or shine, unless there are safety concerns that prompt the council to issue a cancellation notice.
Refunds will be made as follows:
- No refunds issued on pre-purchased tickets
- No refunds are given within two weeks of a program
- You may swap participants up to the day of the event
- Refunds will not be given for programs or events $5 or less.
- Refund requests must be made in writing prior to registration deadline
- No refunds will be made for registrants not attending the program
- Girl and adult membership registration is non-refundable
- Participants choosing not to attend will not be issued a refund.
Deadlines and Min/Max Requirements
Once registration begins, programs will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Registration will continue until the program has reached the maximum number allowed or the registration deadline, which varies depending on the program. Programs may be cancelled if the stated minimum is not met; all programs are subject to change or cancellation.
A waiting list is created for programs that have reached capacity. To be placed on the waiting list call, Program Registrar (815) 651-2711.
All program fees must be paid in full with the registration. Fees are deposited when registration is processed.
Normal fee charges help cover supplies and/or facilitator fees. Actual costs are offset by council funding such as fall product and Girl Scout Cookie program profit, Family Partnership contributions, grants and other funder allocations.
Unless specified as a family or parent/girl program, use the recommended ratios for the number of adults per girl as listed in the Safety Activity Checkpoints. Adult volunteers are needed at some programs to maintain the appropriate girl-adult ratio. If space is limited, once the girl-adult ratio is met, no additional adult registrations will be accepted.
Men are encouraged and welcome to participate in Girl Scouts as volunteers or event chaperones. Separate accommodations will be made as appropriate in accordance to Safety Activity Checkpoints, which specifically prohibits men from sleeping in the same space as girl members. Men may participate in overnights only if separate sleeping quarters and bathrooms are available for their use. For more information about overnight regulations for male volunteers, call 630-544-5900 or email us.
