Summer Sessions Overview

With nearly 100 years of experience bringing children into nature to discover the outdoors, their Jewish identity, a warm community and their best selves, no summer is complete without a summer session at Camp Tawonga! Our traditional summer camp sessions are available for campers ranging from entering 2nd through 10th grades and include a wide range of activities in a group-centered environment. Read below for details on each of our summer camp sessions.

This is a great introduction to sleep-away camp! Most campers joining A Taste of Camp are new to Tawonga, and many are new to overnight camp. Our counselors are prepared to support campers through this transition.

Campers participate in traditional camp activities with their pod of campers and counselors. Activities include arts and crafts, cooking in the garden, swimming, campfires, boating, archery, s’mores and more. We set the schedule for each bunk to ensure that campers have an opportunity to rotate through our most popular program areas.
