Family Camp

Join Our Family Camp Weekends!

Offered in May, August, September and now October

Camp Tawonga’s six weekends for families offer four days of relaxation and rejuvenation for adults and fun for kids in the stunning beauty of the Sierra Mountains.

Family Camp provides a taste of all that Tawonga has to offer: campfires, song sessions, Shabbat, boating on the lake, arts and crafts, the challenge course, hiking to and dipping in the river, yoga, stargazing, delicious food and free-flowing Peet’s Coffee.

Families have ample opportunities to enjoy Camp together, and adults also have designated time on their own to explore activities while our supportive counselors provide fun programming for kids, ranging from sports and swimming to storytime with the tots and babies.

As a community, we celebrate Shabbat with singing, dancing and a delicious Friday night dinner followed by participatory, kid-friendly services in our beautiful outdoor sanctuary on Saturday morning. Tawonga’s weekend programs are the ultimate family getaway, to unplug and immerse in nature and community, relax, unwind and have some serious fun!

Family Camp 7: Sukkot (October 1-4)
Due to the Family Camp 1 Memorial Day Weekend cancellation, we’ve added Family Camp 7! Unplug with us in the mountains on Sukkot weekend! Spend Thursday-Sunday enjoying hikes, swims, campfires, special fall and Sukkot-themed programming, free flowing Peet’s coffee and excellent child care.

And check out our Family Camp Packing List before you go!

I can’t recommend it highly enough! If you love the outdoors, music, arts & crafts, swimming, and tons of childcare so adults can have fun too, these weekends are for you.Jessica C.
