At Tawonga, the children always come first. Our entire staff is trained to focus on the unique needs, attributes and personalities of each child – and our nurturing environment cultivates transformative personal growth. We understand that sleep-away camp is full of challenges, especially for first-time campers. Each triumph – a new friendship, a backpacking trip, a swim in the river – builds independence, resilience and self-esteem. Parents often tell us that their children return home buoyed with more self-confidence.
