Important Information

Girl Scouts of Maine provides qualified instructors and course materials. However, enrollment does not guarantee certification. The instructor determines whether or not an individual has successfully completed a course. Please pay close attention to course prerequisites.

Health Forms
A health form signed by a physician within the previous 12 months – that includes a health history and an up-to-date immunization record - must be mailed or faxed to the GSME office prior to your course.

All certification courses take place at Camp Pondicherry in Bridgton, Maine. Courses that are multiple days in length will have evening classes. Participants sleep in tent/cabins; however, anyone with medical needs that require electricity can receive indoor/electric accommodations.

Bathrooms with hot showers are available throughout camp, but participants must bring their own toiletries, towels and bedding. Meals are prepared by our food service staff and served in the dining hall. We are able to accommodate dietary restrictions; however, please note your special requirements on your health form so that we can prepare for your stay with us.

Drugs and Alcohol
Cigarettes, alcohol, and other recreational drugs are prohibited at Girl Scouts of Maine camps - without exception! Please do not bring fireworks, young children, or pets to training.

Minor participants
Some of our courses are open to minors, however, they must have a release form signed by their parent or guardian prior to participating in the course.

Cancellation and Refunds
We will accept cancellations up to June 1, 2014. No refunds will be permitted after this date. Funds will be returned, minus a $30 processing fee. There will be no refunds for participants who fail to show up for the course, who do not meet the requirements (includes failure to pass the lifeguard swim test), or who fail to complete the required course work.
