Camp Tuolumne Trails


Camp Tuolumne Trails (CTT) will be kicking off its Third Annual Concerts for a Cause Summer Music Series on June 3. All proceeds from the concerts go toward camp’s “Arts for All” program, which encourages campers to participate in various arts and crafts, music programs, and to take home mementos that campers can now create in CTT’s new ceramics studio.

Sept 9 – Rebecca Jade will be joined by special guest keyboardist Carnell Harrell. Rebecca was recently named “Breakout Artist of the Year” by the Smooth Jazz Network. Her career has skyrocketed in the past couple years, often touring with contemporary jazz saxophonist Dave Koz for his annual jazz cruises and annual Christmas shows, as well as her personal concert dates around the country.

Gates open at 5:30, VIP Dinner at 6:00, Show starts at 7:00

General Admission $65, Reserved Seats with Dinner $105, VIP Seating and Premium Dinner for Two $325

Sept 30 – Ilya Serov, trumpet player and crooner, will be joined by Bay Area native and electrifying sax man Jeff Ryan.

This year’s lineup of talented musicians will perform in CTT’s 150-seat, wheelchair-accessible outdoor amphitheater set among the pine and oak trees of its 80-acre facility, which borders the Stanislaus National Forest. Built during the pandemic-forced shutdown of camp, the amphitheater was built largely from monetary and materials donations and a team of volunteers helped construct it.

Opening in 2008 to serve campers with disabilities, Camp Tuolumne Trails’ mission is to help those with disabilities and those who support them by providing an accommodating and stimulating environment for healing, respite, education and recreation. Over the past 15 years, CTT has served hundreds of special-needs campers ages 10 to 80, offers a Family Camp for an entire family unit with a disabled child or adult, and hosts unique groups such as outdoor education programs for elementary school children, and Operation Freedom Paws, a nonprofit that matches service dogs to veterans with PTSD, who spend a weekend at camp as part of their training with their dogs.

CTT, one of the most accommodating and accessible camps in the country, provides its campers with a unique opportunity to those who might not otherwise ever have the opportunity to enjoy the fun of a typical summer camp. The large facility offers an accessible swimming pool, fishing pond, soccer field, basketball, archery, volleyball and gold mining, ping-pong, pool and Foosball tables, music studio, arts and crafts, and the new ceramics studio. CTT features six large cabins and two bathhouses. The bathhouses and the infirmary now feature ceiling-mounted lift chairs for easy access to bathing and medical treatment, thanks to a recent grant received from the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. Program and medical staff are determined by individual camper’s needs.

About Camp Tuolumne Trails

Camp Tuolumne Trails, a project of the Jerry and Paula Baker Foundation, is a camp for individuals with special medical needs and their families. It is devoted to helping those with special needs and those who support them by providing an accommodating environment for healing, respite, education and recreation.

From kids with muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy to military veterans dealing with readjustment and/or post-traumatic stress, its campers find Tuolumne Trails to be therapeutic and fun. It is located on 80 beautiful acres of Sierra Nevada wilderness outside the mountain community of Groveland, Calif., near Yosemite National Park. Over time, it has expanded from its initial focus on special needs children to include their families, returning veterans, and adults with disabilities.
