The Rim Fire was one of the largest in California history. And one year later, its devastating impact is still being felt. For more than 90 years, the Berkeley Tuolomne Family Camp was a place for parents and kids to explore nature, but the camp was destroyed by the fire. 

Scott Gelfand, a board member of the non-profit Friends of the Berkeley Tuolomne Camp, says camp this year was held at the smaller Echo Lake Camp near Lake Tahoe and efforts are underway to rebuild the camp at the original location.
