Rebuilding Camp Tuolumne for the next 100 years

The Friends of Berkeley Tuolumne Camp are raising $1 million or more to revive the natural cornerstone of Camp Tuolumne.

The rebuilding of our beloved Berkeley Tuolumne Family Camp is underway. This $60 million dollar project, funded by Insurance, FEMA and the City of Berkeley, covers as-was replacement of all previous infrastructure plus code requirements. However, the fire has drastically changed the landscape in and around Camp. 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.

For generations, Camp Tuolumne has ignited us all with the Camp Spirit. It’s been a place for families to reunite, friendships to grow, and communities built. It’s a place everyone can connect with nature, explore and be their best self. Now, it is our time to honor Camp and ensure that future generations can receive these same gifts. Join your fellow campers, former staff and Tuolumne community with a gift to rebuild and strengthen Camp Tuolumne for the next 100 years.


Our goal is to raise $1 million or more by October 31, 2019, so that shade can be installed, mature trees planted and trails restored when Camp re-opens in June 2022. This timeline is important because our funding and plans need to be included in the City’s initial bid for contractors (November 2019).


For your generous contributions, donors to the Rebuilding CAMPaign will be recognized on our website, in printed materials and memorialize your name at Camp.

  • Stewardship level donors ($1,000 – $9,999) will be named on a beautiful donor tree mounted in the Dining Hall
  • Friendship level donors ($10,000 – $24,999) will be named on a Green Chair
  • Leadership level donors ($25,000 or more) will be named on a plaque near the Dining Hall fireplace or the donor’s favorite place in Camp
