About Our Camp

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. 7th grade campers participate in the “Aides-in-Training” (AIT) program and may assist unit leaders as Aides when entering grades 8-10.
