Our fork of the Tuolumne
One of the things about Camp Tawonga that makes it so special is our spectacular location. Situated on 160 beautiful acres in the Stanislaus National Forest, just seven miles from the gate to Yosemite National Park, Tawonga is a true oasis where children can connect with nature. The middle fork of the Tuolumne River runs through the base of Tawonga and is central to camp life. Bunks take a short hike down to different spots at the “riv” to swim, rock-hop, and even to capture the scene with watercolors. It is an absolute favorite place to cool off, relax, and appreciate the natural environment (you can take a virtual tour of camp here on our website to learn more about our property).
Pipeline refers to the main route from camp down to a popular river spot by the same name, where campers enjoy the water, as well as cookouts and the camp sweat lodge in the evenings.
We are excited to announce that our blog will hereby be named The Pipeline as a representation of both the communication channel to our community as well as our deep connection to the river. Some of you may recall this name being used for our e-newsletter in years past, and we are happy to be reviving it in its modern form.
Earlier today, following rest hour, B-10A spent the afternoon building nature forts along the banks of the river at Pipeline. Several other bunks will be spending quality time at the river as well throughout the week.
Our Taste of Camp campers are settling in nicely to the groove of camp. To learn about what a typical day at Tawonga looks like, check out this link. More photos coming this evening, so stay tuned!
