Acceptance to Camp

  • Thanks to our wonderful volunteers, we were able to accept all campers this year!
  • You should have received a receipt from Active on the day you registered in February. Keep this, as it contains our Tax ID! If you did not receive your registration confirmation, please check your SPAM folder, and if it is not there, please email us immediately.
  • We sent an “Acceptance to Camp” email to all campers on 3/19/19, but many people did not receive it. If you did not receive it, please see “Email Issues” below.

Email Issues

  • Unfortunately, Active is having issues sending mass emails to addresses at Yahoo, AOL, and Rocketmail.

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 areas. 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. Campers entering 7th grade or higher participate in our leadership program, starting with  the “Aides-in-Training” (AIT) program, and may assist unit leaders as Aides when entering grades 8-10. Girls entering grades 11 and higher who have been and AIT and AIDE serve as Unit Leaders at camp, with adult supervision.
