Camp Tawonga: Where the wild things are
It’s day five of Session II here at Camp Tawonga, and we are having a blast! While Galil (G-3, G-4A, G-4B, B-3, B-4) and bunks G-1 and G-2 are off adventuring in Yosemite National Park, we are exploring the wild right here at camp with a “Campers in the Wild” themed Floats (a block where campers “float” between different activities at their leisure).
Our Counselors In-Training (ITs) planned and hosted “Campers in the Wild” which featured special activities such as animal face-painting and mask-making and an all-camp collaborative jungle mural. While most activities at camp are structured, Floats offers campers an array of open activities which we believe fosters creative expression and independence. The ITs selected the theme “Campers in the Wild “ to engage campers of all ages and to incorporate activities from every department at camp such as Arts & Crafts (A&C), Waterfront (Pool and lake), and Programming.
In addition, bunks experimented with wood-burning art at A&C, Unit Swim, and water-coloring in the Freedom Forest. Below are photographs from throughout a day in the life at Camp T. Look forward to more coming tonight!
