    • How do I make a Reservation? Carefully read the instructions on how to make a reservation. Then register online or use a Council Reservation Form (located in the back of this guide) and follow the instructions at the top of the form according to whether you are registering as a troop/group or individual. Please make sure to meet the reservation deadline. There will be a $5 late fee on all programs unless otherwise noted. Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis unless otherwise stated. If a session is full, you have the option of being placed on a waiting list. Note: Due to limited space and the nature of these activities, tagalongs cannot be accommodated, unless noted otherwise. Reservation Options: Online at www.kansasgirlscouts.org • This is the fastest and easiest way to make a reservation for an event. • Each family and the troop/group will have a registration account. This account can be used for training or event reservations. New accounts will be created as members of the troop/group register for Girl Scouts. Passwords will be e-mailed to the e-mail address on file (parents of individual girls or leader for troop accounts) or can be requested by calling the Girl Scout Center–Wichita at (316) 684-6531 or (888) 472-3683. • Full payment for the reservation is required and can be made by e-check, Visa or MasterCard. • If you do not have access to the Internet, here are some options: – Computers are available at some of the Girl Scout Centers during office hours Monday through Friday. – Other locations such as libraries, schools and community centers may have computers with access to the Internet and our Web site. By Mail • Complete the Council Event Reservation Form in the back of the Road Map and mail or bring it to the Girl Scout Center where the event is taking place (noted next to the program contact). • Full payment may be made by check. Please do not mail cash. By Phone • Call one of the Girl Scout Center locations to make a reservation. E-check, Visa or MasterCard required for phone reservations. Payment Options: Checks or e-checks You can mail a troop or individual check with your reservation form or go online to log on to your family or troop/group reservation account and pay by e-check. All checks will be processed as e-check transactions that withdraw directly from your checking account. Make checks payable to Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland (GSKH). By entering this information online or providing a check as payment, you authorize Girl Scout of Kansas Heartland to process a one-time electronic funds transfer (EFT) or draft drawn on your account. If your check does not clear your bank, it will be charged back against your family or troop/group account along with a $30 service charge and any additional bank charges. Your reservation(s) will not be complete until this total amount is paid. Call (316) 684-6531 with any questions regarding electronic funds transfers. 1
    • Credit Card or Debit Card • Go online to log on to your family or troop/group reservation account and use a credit card (for family accounts only) or debit card to make a payment. Credit cards are not approved for troop use. • You may also pay by credit card or debit card in person or by phone. Cash • You may pay by cash if bringing your form directly to a Girl Scout Center. • Do not mail cash. Cookie Credits Cookie Credits may be used for council events; reservations must be made before Nov.15, 2009. Cookie credits expire Nov. 15, 2009. Event Reservation Deadlines: All program event reservations begin Dec. 22, 2008.. Check each event for reservation deadline. Reservations must be received by 5 p.m. the date of the reservation deadline*. Some events fill quickly and may be closed before the reservation deadline. In this case, the participant may be placed on a waiting list. Go online to check for event openings or call the Girl Scout Center. When events are filled to capacity, registration automatically closes. * Late Fee: There is a $5 late fee on all programs unless noted otherwise. Who can participate in events and programs? • Registered Girl Scouts and adults can participate in any program that is age-level appropriate (unless otherwise noted). • Girls and adults who are not currently members can register as Girl Scouts and attend all events listed in the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland Road Map. A girl or adult is registered when the GSUSA registration form and $10 have been received at the Girl Scout Center. Troop/group leaders must also be registered members of GSUSA and have on file a volunteer application, references and criminal background check. • Troop reservations require that troop adults be in attendance. Individual girls who register for events are not required to be accompanied by an adult (unless otherwise noted). • Most programs cannot accommodate walk-ins; therefore, walk-ins will be allowed only at select events which are noted. Tagalongs: Due to limited space and the nature of these activities, tagalongs cannot be accommodated, unless noted otherwise. Tagalongs are defined as individuals of any age who are not registered Girl Scouts or a registered Girl Scout attending an event specified for an age level that is different from her age level. Participants with Special Needs When registering, please indicate if there will be girls or adults attending who have special needs. Advance notice will help staff and volunteers who are planning the event to make any necessary arrangements to accommodate special needs. Financial Assistance Assistance is available for girls who may not otherwise be able to participate in Girl Scout events. Assistance may be requested for troop/group dues, uniforms, books and council programs. Application forms for financial assistance are available online at www.kansasgirlscouts.org or in the Girl Scout Centers. Financial Aid requests must be submitted four weeks prior to the event and approved before making a reservation. 2
    • What if an event is cancelled or I need a refund? Event Cancellations Event cancellations may happen due to lack of reservations or weather. In the case of lack of reservations, participants will be notified. If an event is cancelled because of weather or some other unforeseen circumstance, the council will notify radio and television stations of the cancellations. Make sure to check an event’s status before assuming it is cancelled; sometimes the weather that affects your area may not affect the location where the event is taking place. Event Refunds Refunds less a $10 non-refundable fee are provided for events when (not applicable for event fee under $10 and may not be applicable for event deposits that have been paid): • A girl moves out of council. • A girl is certified ill by a physician. • There is a death in the family.
