Daughters of the American Revolution


The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a service organization open to any woman age 18 years or older who can prove lineal descent from an American Revolutionary War Patriot. Much of the work of the DAR is accomplished by volunteers in its chapters across the United States and internationally in order to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism.


The Camelback Chapter, NSDAR, is a local chapter of the DAR. Our chapter is based in Phoenix, Arizona, and our members come from many parts of the area and beyond.

Our Chapter


In keeping with the purpose of the National Society, chapter members work together on numerous projects in order to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism. We all have busy lives, so our projects offer ways to contribute that fit our schedules. We keep in touch across our many service projects through monthly meetings, where we enjoy brunch, an informative program, a business session, and socializing. Learn more about our activities.


We invite you to contact our chapter registrar who will help you get started in becoming a member of the DAR, including tracing your heritage to find an American Revolutionary War Patriot.

Chapter Namesake

The name Camelback paints a descriptive picture of the most famous and imposing mountain in Phoenix. Its copper-brown rock stretches across the desert in the image of a reclining dromedary camel. The mountain is located in the Camelback Mountain Echo Canyon Recreation Area, between the Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix and the town of Paradise Valley. It is a popular destination for hiking and rock climbing. 


Camelback Mountain continues to be a sacred place for the O’odham people, descendants of the prehistoric indigenous group who lived in Central Arizona since time immemorial. Our chapter took its name from this famous Phoenix landmark.
