The Friends of Berkeley Tuolumne Family Camp group is holding three fundraising events, starting this Friday, to mark the first anniversary of the Rim Fire, which effectively destroyed the much loved, city-run family summer camp.
On Aug. 25, 2013, the largest recorded wildfire in the Sierra Nevada burned 92 of the Tuolumne camp's 111 structures, including all of its main buildings.
The Friends of Berkeley Tuolumne Camp, the nonprofit organization that supports and serves the campers of Berkeley’s Camp Tuolumne, says the goal of the events is “to bring together the families of Camp Tuolumne and to keep their camp spirit alive and well as we work together to rebuild Camp Tuolumne.”
Here are details of the events, as published by the Friends group:
First event: Campfire Sing-a-Along with S’mores in Berkeley
When: Friday, August 22, 5:30-8 p.m.
Where: Codornices Park, Berkeley
