Rebuilding Camp Tuolumne

The rebuilding of our beloved Berkeley Tuolumne Family Camp is underway. Click here to view the drawings of new Camp Tuolumne. Read about the latest from the City of Berkeley here.

This $60 million dollar project will be funded by Insurance, FEMA and the City of Berkeley and covers as-was replacement of all previous infrastructure plus code requirements. However, the fire has drastically changed the landscape in and around Camp – we have lost more than 8,000 trees! Without a forest, we will need shade and mature trees planted to keep us cool in the Green Chair Circle. These critical features, however, will not be covered by the project’s budget. Our Rebuilding CAMPaign is raising that support needed to install shade, plant mature trees and restore the trails around Camp.

Why give? For generations, Camp Tuolumne has ignited us all with the Camp Spirit. Since 1922, Camp has been a place for families to reunite, friendships made, and communities built. It’s a place everyone can connect with nature, explore and be their best self. Since the Rim Fire in 2013 destroyed our Camp, Camp needs us. Now is our time to honor this place and ensure that future generations can receive these same gifts we did.

Join your fellow campers, former staff and Tuolumne community with a gift to rebuild and strengthen Camp Tuolumne for the next 100 years and beyond.


The Friends have raised over $1 million to revitalize the natural cornerstone at Camp Tuolumne.

We have raised more than $1,032,000 for mature trees, trail restoration and shade for the new Camp Tuolumne. Thanks to the support from generous campers, former staff, Board members and the greater Tuolumne community and we almost to our goal. But, we still need your help!
