DURING the summer of 2023, we will present four three 5-day sessions and one three-day session to accommodate the demand for quality camps for girls in Marin County.

The session dates are:

Camp Arequipa places campers through a LOTTERY process, from all campers who apply during the regular February application period. Full-Time adult volunteers and their children are guaranteed a space in camp (per admission guidelines).

PLACEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE: Acceptance notices will be emailed soon (really!)
LOG IN to your account to:
- check your status
- see if we have processed your fees and forms
- edit personal information like phone numbers or camper release information (edit application).
Unit assignments and bus stops are published on your Family Review log-in page approximately a week before your camp session starts. You will be notified by email when they have been made; you’ll need to log in to check.

If you were accepted at camp…
You’ll see an “X” or “Unit” in the Session to which you’ve been assigned. If you are placed from a waitlist, payment is due within two weeks of notification of placement.

  • Forms are due Sunday, April 30. You will be notified by email if paperwork is missing.

If you are unable to attend camp, please let us know ASAP. You have until three weeks before your session starts to get a refund (less your application fee and fees to register as a Girl Scout), and you will allow a waitlisted girl to go to camp. Remember that ANT fees are not refundable.

If you are waitlisted…
You will not see an “X” next to your child’s name. We are placing girls as space becomes available. You will be notified as soon as we have an opening for you. Consider volunteering as a full-time adult volunteer if you want to make sure your child gets into camp.

We look forward to seeing you at Site Safety Training the Sunday before your camp session begins.
