We rely on your contributions to keep the dream alive.

Parents of children with special needs face enormous financial burdens. We are committed to ensuring that no child misses a camp experience due to financial constraints. Please join with us to provide the “simple joys of childhood” to children with special medical needs. While most of our campers contribute to the cost of attending camp, we rely on the generosity of people like you to help make ends meet. The camp has virtually no overhead, so your entire donation goes directly to programs, site improvements and scholarships for campers.

Your support can take many forms:

Donate to the General Fund

All of our special needs programs are heavily subsidized. We count on your kindness to make ends meet.

Support our Campership Fund

Typically it costs $500 to send a camper to Tuolumne Trails for a week. Your donation will help ensure that no one is left out. Your donation will be reserved to support campers with financial hardships.

Donate in Honor or Memory of A Loved One

Looking for the perfect gift for your friend’s birthday, or for Mother’s Day or your anniversary? Make a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one. Give the gift of camp today, and help us send more kids who are sick to camp. We are happy to send a card to acknowledge your gift.

Make Us Part of your Estate Plan

Camp Tuolumne Trails will be helping these special kids long after we are all gone. A bequest to a noble cause clearly shows your beliefs and values. A gift from your estate will ensure the long term viability of Tuolumne Trails.

We have a relationship with a financial planner who can help you through the process. Contact us for more information.Sign Up to Help Out

At Tuolumne Trails we never run out of work to do! If you would like to help, just let us know. At least twice a year we have work days to perform maintenance and provide improvements on the facility, but we also have projects going all year long. Sign up for our volunteer newsletter to keep abreast of all the opportunities to get involved.

For the safety of our campers, we require that anyone on site when campers are present go through the LIVESCAN fingerprinting process.
