Adventure Quests

Take friendship, nature and Judaism on the road for a transformative outdoor adventure.

Adventure Quests and COVID-19

In order to prioritize the health and safety of our campers, staff, and entire Tawonga community, we have made some changes to our 2021 programs and Camp practices, including for Quests. You can read about these changes to our 2021 season here in our FAQs and see below for more specifics about Adventure Quests.

A Note On Re-Opening

We are hopeful that the State of California will issue reopening guidelines for residential summer camps soon and that we will be able to run our full slate of summer programs. As of now we have not been given the green light. Full refunds can be provided if programs are cancelled. Learn more here.

Quest Overview

A Tawonga Quest is a road trip full of friends and adventure. Questers sleep under the stars, immerse in epic wilderness and learn new skills in a supportive, small group cohort.

Each trip follows a different itinerary and offers exciting outdoor activities like backpacking, rock climbing, sea kayaking and river rafting, which are designed to challenge, empower and inspire. Teens choose the music, set the menu, and have fun together – it’s like a road trip with a dozen friends.

Mission-Aligned

Tawonga’s four-part mission of building self-esteem, creating cooperative community, and fostering connections to Judaism, spirituality and the natural world come to life during these off-site adventures. Quests are the perfect balance of thrill time and chill time.
