Camp and Bus Information

  • The Active registration forms have been closed to updates as of June 30 so that we can run reports for camp. Any further changes will need to go through the Registrar and be made directly with Unit Leaders and Bus Leads. There is no internet and poor cell reception at camp, so we need everything on paper once camp begins. Any changes made from here on out must be done by hand.
  • Archery (5th graders) and Horseback (6th graders) Waivers can still be completed - please sign in to your Active account and complete the waiver. All waivers are electronic and cannot be emailed or printed - you must complete them in your online account before camp begins or your child will be unable to participate.
  • Please see the Camp Details for what to bring, what to wear, etc.
  • Please see the Bus FAQ for details about bus stops, pickup and dropoff times, and pickup process.
  • A “Week 1 Reminders” email was sent out the week before camp with links to Bus Details and Unit Leader Contact Info and an updated report with your camper’s Unit, Bus, Archery, Horseback Riding, and Overnight Status. Please only email us if something is in error.
  • If you need to add people to pick up your camper from the bus, please print and fill out the Bus Pickup Change Form and hand it to your Bus Mom when your child boards the bus in the morning. Please do not email us with these changes.
  • If you know your camper will be absent or will need to be picked up early from camp, please print, fill out, and sign the  Attendance Exception Form  and hand it to the Bus Mom at dropoff. Please do not email us with these changes.
  • Overnight for Campers entering grade 4-10: If your camper has changed their mind about the overnight, please email us BEFORE Saturday 7/28 so we can make the change to unit and bus attendance and health reports. If your camper changes their mind and decides NOT to spend the night after Saturday 7/28, we cannot send them home on the bus - you will need to come pick them up at camp before 2pm on Wednesday 8/1.

About our Camp

Diamond Crest Girl Scout Day Camp is an all-volunteer run day camp and is held at a San Mateo County park. Our camp has been in operation for many years and is rich in traditions and has welcomed girls for several generations. We offer one session each year. All applicants are welcome and are admitted by the criteria listed in our Admissions Policy. Our campers travel to camp each day by buses leaving from local schools, churches and community buildings in the Belmont, Redwood Shores and San Carlos area. We offer an overnight experience of 1-2 nights for campers entering grades 4-10.

Campers entering grades 1-7 are grouped in units with girls of their own age/grade and are supervised by trained staff members and program aides. Campers participate in a wide variety of activities including earning badges, hiking, outdoor cooking, learning outdoor skills, crafts, games, singing and more. 7th grade campers participate in the “Aides-in-Training” (AIT) program and may assist unit leaders as Aides when entering grades 8-10.
