Welcome to Diablo Day Camp

Happy Holidays!

Dear day camp families, I hope everyone is happy and and healthy during the Holidays. We are happy to announce that the Diablo Day Camp committee is planning to offer 8 sessions at Twin Canyon in Lafayette and one session at Little Hills Ranch in San Ramon for summer 2023. We can’t wait to see everyone again. 

We hope you find this information helpful.


Diablo Day Camp registration dates for 2023:
Starting January 4 (12 noon): Directors and their families.
Starting January 11 (12 noon): Third year (and up) volunteers and their families, Graduated Elves Returning as Adult Staff and Current Training Elves (by invitation only).

Starting January 25 (12 noon): New and Second year volunteers and their families.

Starting Saturday, February 18 (7:00 am): Open Registration for campers and elves. Last year, most spots were filled on the first day of open registration.


Online registration 

We will continue to use RegPack for online registration. Register for camp with ease and peace of mind. At registration, you will know right away if your preferred week is available and if not, you can choose another available week. You can create a RegPack account and individual profiles for all participants at any time. We encourage you create your new account, or check your existing account, before you register. That way, you’ll be all set when registration actually opens.

NEW! A camp availability page. Quotas will change in real time. The number of spots available is dependent on the number of volunteers who sign up as well as site limits set by GSNorCal.

NEW! Health forms MUST be completed BEFORE you will be allowed to register.

If you are new to RegPack, take time to create a family account and a profile for each person you will register. Be sure to complete the health form. This will be required before you can sign up for any session. 

If you already have a RegPack account, you will need to review, update and verify health information for each participant before you can register them. Do this ahead of time!

ONE RegPack account per family

Please only create ONE RegPack account for your entire immediate family. You cannot register a friend. If you create more than one account, more than one profile for a single individual, or register your camper for more than one session using different email addresses, all of your reservations will be canceled. If this happens, we will notify you so that you can log on again and make a correct reservation if space is still available in your preferred session.

NEW! No Refunds.

The DDC Committee has changed the refund policy to NO REFUNDS except in extreme circumstances. Please check your calendar before you sign up and verify your availability. DDC Refund Policy

Limited Elf spots

We anticipate that most elf spots, especially new elf openings, will be filled by elves attending with volunteers. If you have a child who aspires to be an elf at camp, please consider volunteering. DDC Elf Program.

We need volunteers!

Even if you don’t have a wanna-be elf, please consider volunteering. We were not able to fill all spots last summer due to a lack of adult volunteers. Volunteering is FUN! You can bring preschool age children and elementary-school age boys. DDC Volunteer Program.
