Three weeks of leadership development, service and wilderness experiences at Camp for rising 11th graders
Unfortunately, after careful consideration, we have determined that it is not yet safe to re-open our site for programs from July through October. The known and unknown risks of transmission conflict with Tawonga’s fundamental commitment to the health and safety of our families. We will reopen as soon as we are ready to do so.

During Session III: July 5 – 24, 2020
Rising 11th graders (current 10th graders)
This three-week program takes place at Camp Tawonga during Session III for rising 11th graders. Teens will go on a memorable four-day 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 dealing with 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 wilderness experiences including a four-day backpacking trip, rock climbing in Yosemite as well as classic Camp activities, teens will form bonds within their cohort that will last a lifetime.
