Volunteers

Remember when you were a camper? For some of us, our memory is of a magical place, a special friend, or a special adult who helped us through a challenging situation. Day camp offers opportunities for girls to establish connections with other girls and with positive role models that continues into a lifelong approach to learning. Our volunteers are a dedicated and caring team that brings the camp program to life and makes it personal for every girl.

The Day Camp Staff is 100% volunteer. We are always looking for enthusiastic adults who like working with children, are willing to learn and love to play too! We provide training and mentoring through your week of camp. Most of our staff are repeat volunteers.

If you are interested in working at camp this summer, fill out the Volunteer portion of the camper registration form and submit your camp registration by the February 1st deadline to be entered in the registration lottery. Late staff applications will only be considered on an as needed basis.

Family members will attend camp the same week (same session) unless otherwise requested, however volunteers do not work directly with their own children. By committing to volunteer for a session of camp, your child will be given priority in the registration lottery. Once you register, we count on you! Camp enrollment is based on staff enrollment. Unfortunately, should your plans change, your child and any other children associated with your application will have to be dropped from camp.

For the quality of the adult/girl partnership, all Diablo Day Camp volunteers must commit to work all five days of camp.

You do not have to be a registered adult Girl Scout. If you are not, please include the $15 fee (GSUSA registration to September) and we will register you. Also, visit the Forms page on this site to download an Adult Screening Packet. Complete the packet and include it with your registration form.

Visit the Training Dates page on this site to learn about the required training. You do not need to contact the Girl Scounts of Northern California office to register for Diablo Day Camp training days. Mark your calendar early – we look forward to seeing you.

During the camp session, Diablo Day Camp has a “Tag” unit for preschool age children of our staff, ages 3 – 5 years who are potty trained. A Boys unit for boys currently enrolled K-5, of our adult staff is also available. The Tags and Boys have a full camp program which mirrors the girls’ program, with activities tailored to their interests and abilities.
