Tawonga’s Response to COVID-19

Updated 5/29/2020

For weeks, each of us has witnessed the impact of COVID-19 and it breaks our hearts to cancel our 2020 summer season. Our entire team shares in our community’s sadness. We made our decision based on science and public health guidelines. The known and unknown risks of transmission conflict with Tawonga’s fundamental commitment to the health and safety of our families.

We are working hard to design different ways to bring our community together this summer and remain hopeful that our late summer and fall Family Camp Weekends will run as scheduled with every necessary safety protocol in place.

Above all else, we want to assure you that the strength of Tawonga will see us through this turbulence and keep us close.
