Tie-Dye Instructions

Step 1: Let the shirt sit in the plastic bag for at least 24 hours

Step 2: After the 24 hours, take the shirt out of the bag, leave the rubber bands on, and rinse it under cold water, until the water runs clear.

Step 3: Take the rubber bands out, and run the shirt under warm water until the water runs clear.

Step 4: After rinsing your child’s shirt, put the shirt into the washing machine, separately and run it in hot water.

Step 5: Once the shirt dries, your child can wear the shirt.

Camp Crossroads is 100% volunteer run.  We need full-time volunteers at camp (Adult & Teen Staff) and part-time volunteers before, during and after camp (Helping Hands).  Girl Scout children of Adult Staff attend camp for a greatly reduced fee (and their boys and pre-schoolers may also attend for a small fee as well).  Children of Helping Hands volunteers pay the full fee, but they are guaranteed placement (no lottery).  Adult and Teen Staff must apply on an application on our website starting in January (stay tuned for dates and deadlines!).  Helping Hands volunteers fill out an application on our website to enter our Helping Hands lottery starting in February (see the Important 2021 Dates section for all deadlines!).  For more details see the "Volunteer" sections and see our "Frequently Asked Questions".


Camp Crossroads Teen Staff Training Program - AIT 1 and AIT 2.  AITs enter the regular "camper" lottery on the GSCNC website.  If accepted, AITs must attend a mandatory training session in May and one in June.  Failure to participate in these trainings will cause the camper to be changed to a non AIT unit.  **There will be no refunds as the refund date will have past.**

Placement at Camp Crossroads is by lottery.  Everyone who registers during the appropriate window will have an equal opportunity to win a place in the lottery.

No More Overnight.  A change for Camp Crossroads (beginning in 2017) was the elimination of the overnight for 4th-9th graders on Friday night. Over the last few years the number of girls participating in this event has declined - less than 50% of the eligible girls sign up to spend the night. We've decided to return to the traditional day camp model where girls do not spend the night.


Camp Crossroads MAY offer the following high adventure activities:

- Challenge Course Low Ropes (current K and above)
- Challenge Course High Ropes (current 4th grand and above)

All activities follow Girl Scout safety standards and specific activities will be tailored for the ages of the campers.  There is no guarantee that these activities will be offered and sometime activities are canceled for safety reasons (usually weather issues).
