REGISTER HERE

The registration period for Virginia Skyline Council troops is February 18 to March 11. Council troops will be given first priority while out-of-council troop registrations will be accepted beginning March 1 (dependent upon space). The following is needed to complete your registration online: t-shirt sizes, health history information, lodging choice and workshop choices.

Before you get started! We acknowledge that the Junior Jam registration process is long. Online registrations ensure the health & safety of all program participants. For insurance and planning purposes this information is required during registration. The beauty of the online registration system is that it also provides volunteers immediate feedback with confirmation of sleeping accommodations and workshops upon checkout. We are working to try to reduce the timing-out issues, but please be aware this is still an issue. Below are suggestions to help you prepare.

PLEASE READ BEFORE REGISTERING

  • Registration is by troop only.
  • Troop leaders are to register the adults for the workshops along with the girls!
  • Be sure to have all participant’s health history information on hand prior to beginning the registration process.
  • Complete health history information, payment, and checkout are required to be completely registered.
  • Once your selections are added to the cart, it will only stay in the cart for 45 minutes. If you do not complete payment, you will have to re-enter all of the registration and health information again. 
  • If the system sits idle with no activity, the system will log you out and you will have to start over. High speed internet is recommended!
  • If you have a large troop, consider registering your troop in patrols or smaller groups (based on interests) in order to register at a faster pace. Remember each group should have a registered adult accompanying them to all sessions. The committee cannot guarantee that troop members registering separately will all be able to experience the same workshops or be in the same sleeping accommodations.
  • As workshops become full, registrants will no longer be able to select those options.
  • Each troop is required to have a First Aider and a GSVSC Outdoor Ed. certified adult attend with the troop
  • For any event, overnight, or camping activities, you will need two volunteers for up to 16 Juniors (grades 4–5) and 1 additional adult for every additional 8 Junior girls. (See girl-to-adult ratio charts in Volunteer Essentials)

And here's a FAQ sheet to help you with any registration questions

This event is for troops only. If an individual girl/adult wishes to participate, then please reach out and team up with a local Junior Girl Scout troop in your service unit or nearby service unit.

Participants may attend with troops that provide the appropriate number of leaders and adult chaperones needed to meet the girl-to-adult ratios for their age-level. Guardian/parent/adult chaperones and troop leaders are required to stay during the entire program.
