Transportation
Bus transportation is provided from local grade schools or churches, with pick-up times from 8:00 to 8:30 a.m., returning to the schools between 3:30 and 4:00 p.m. (Children of camp staff may ride to camp in a parent’s car. All other campers must ride the bus to camp. No one under the age of 18 may drive to camp.)

Campers
Campers are girls entering grades1 through 7 in the fall of 2015.  7th grade campers will participate in the “Aides-in-Training” (AIT) program.

AITS

The AITS spend their time at camp preparing for their future roles as program Aides the following year (entering 8th grade). It is necessary that girls registering as AITS are able to attend camp the entire two weeks of the program. The Day Camp Team is continually striving to provide all of our campers an excellent camp experience. Well-trained Aides are critical to this goal!

AIDES
Girls entering grades 8 through 10 serve as assistants to Day Camp staff, working with Unit Leaders to help supervise campers. Any applicant, who has not completed the Diamond Crest AIT Training or equivalent, will be placed in the AIT unit to complete training, regardless of her current grade level.

Staff
All Day Camp Staff Is Volunteer! This opportunity is open to all adults (18 as of the beginning of camp), not just Girl Scout leaders. Volunteers must complete the required training and adult screening through Girl Scouts of Northern California. New volunteers may be asked to complete a questionnaire.

Full time staff members work a minimum of 5 days. Children of full time staff members—Girl Scout, non-Girl Scout, Camper, Aide, Boy or Preschooler (potty-trained)—may be eligible for a discounted fee and priority registration. A limited number of part time staff positions may be available. Part time positions and discounted fees for children of part time staff will be determined on a case by case basis after registration is complete and a position has been assigned.

Junior Staff - JUL (Junior Unit Leader) or JAL (Junior Activity Leader)
Girls entering 11th grade or higher and under 18 years old may serve as Junior Staff.  Please note that an Adult Staff member is 18 or older as of July 20, 2015. If you will not be 18 until AFTER July 20th, please use the "2015 Junior Staff" application link to register. Junior Staff:
