Please take our Berkeley Tuolumne Camp Survey
The City of Berkeley is exploring the feasibility of offering a temporary Berkeley Tuolumne Camp site in summer 2014. More than 30 camps have been researched, and six have been identified as potential options to consider. Each site has unique characteristics and conditions, including: setting, capacity, rental cost, distance from Berkeley, facility features, and availability.
The focus of the attached survey is to provide data about the needs of Berkeley Tuolumne Campers and to help the City determine whether an alternate camp program can be provided in 2014.
Please complete the survey by November 4th. Thank you for sharing your valuable insight into potential temporary camp options for the Summer of 2014.
