Registering for Resident Camp

Registration for sessions can be done online or through mail or fax. Online registration is recommended, because placement is immediate with online registration. You will know instantly if your camper has made it into the session or will need to be placed on the waitlist.

If you would like to register via mail or fax, please use the registration form found at under the forms section. Please note that faxed or mailed registration forms can take up to 5 business days to process.

Your registration includes the camp session activities, a camp t-shirt and patch (both given at camp on the last day). You may also choose to pre-pay your Trading Post or Ship’s Store allowance upon registration.


Those registering online will receive immediate confirmation to the e-mail address on file with the camper’s membership profile. Those registering via mail or fax will receive an e-mail confirmation once their registration has been processed. This could take up to five business days after it is received at the main GSSJC office.


A $50 deposit per session is required for all registrations with the exception of those requesting a full campership. (See the side link to Campership for more information.) You are free to make payments at any time on your camp balance. Payment in full is due no later than April 30, 2014.

After the due date, we will send an invoice to each registrant’s address on file noting any remaining balance. Some of our sessions are quite popular and do draw large waiting lists. After April 30, we reserve the right to place someone on the waiting list in your space if you have not paid your balance.

Payment Installments:

Once you register, you are free to make layaway payments to your camp balance as often as you’d like. Payments can be sent to: GSSJC Resident Camp Registrars, 3110 Southwest Freeway, Houston, Texas 77098. Incremental payments cannot be made online.

Please make sure to note the camper's name, week and session on the check or money order so payments are properly credited. There is no limit on the number of payments you make to your camp balance. However, we ask that each payment be a minimum of $10. The April 30 payment due date still applies to those taking advantage of our payment installments option.

***All registrations made after April 30, 2014 must be paid in full.

**Please note that all registration confirmations and camp communications are sent via e-mail. We use the email address that is noted on your camper’s membership profile. Please make sure you are using a valid and current e-mail address to avoid missing any important information and reminders that may be sent out before camp. Any changes to your current email address on file can be made online via the activities registration site.
