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, which will apply to the TLI program. You can read about these changes to our 2021 season here in our FAQs. Please read below to learn more about our TLI program.
This 3.5-week program takes place at Camp Tawonga during Session B for rising 11th graders. *Please reach out to us for grade exceptions for rising 12th graders who were unable to participate in the program in 2020.
Teens will go on a memorable three-night backpacking trip, participate in service projects both inside and outside of Camp, go rock climbing in Yosemite and more!
The Teen Leadership Institute is an opportunity for teens to experience Camp in a new way, emphasizing leadership as they transition into role models for the Camp community. Through thoughtful programs focusing on social justice and timely issues led by veteran staff, teens will walk away feeling confident that they can go out and make a difference in the world.
By giving back to Camp and the surrounding Stanislaus National Forest through service projects, teens will be able to see the positive impact of their labor and effort. And, through a variety of outdoor excursions as well as classic Camp activities, teens will form bonds within their cohort that will last a lifetime.
