Each lunch and dinner, campers can also choose from options at the middle table, including sun-butter and jelly sandwiches, tuna sandwiches and hummus.

Where the Campers Are


Campers in the units of Carmel (B-1, B-2, G-1, G-2A and G-2B) and Galil (B-3, B-4, G-3, G-4A and G-4B) went on their elective day hikes today, exploring the beautiful wilderness that surrounds Camp! Everyone else is in Camp enjoying the beginning of week two.


The unit of Chalutzim (B-9, B-10A, B-10B, G-9 and G-10) leaves for their two-night backpacking trips and the bunks of G-1, G-2A and G-2B are on the Challenge Course tomorrow.



Happy birthday to Bryn G. a vital member of our medical team at Camp this summer!

Here’s what celebrating a birthday at Camp Tawonga looks like. (Hint: It’s pretty special.)


How’s the Weather? ☀️

Sunny with a high of 97, low of 63 today

During the hottest time of the day, campers relax in the shade of their cabins during Rest Hour. Additionally, counselors always make sure that campers stay hydrated, wear sunscreen and cool off in the pool or the beautiful Tuolomne river, which are all especially important during hot days like today. In case you missed it, check out this post on what a “typical day” at Camp Tawonga looks like.
