Berkeley Tuolumne Camp has grown from 13 to 76 tent cabins since 1922 and provides families with a comfortable getaway to the woods family camp that features a relaxed and congenial atmosphere.
Supervised activities help keep children happy while parents get a well-deserved rest or time to participate in an activity more to their liking. Parents and kids can choose to balance togetherness with individual adventures in whatever way works for them.
“There’s always something to do, and I approve of all the activities heartily.” “There isn’t anything there I don’t want any of the kids to be doing – unlike at home,” declares a Tuolumne Camper mom.
