During breakfast, the middle table offers a wide selection of cold cereal and milk (dairy-free options available as well), in addition to hot cereal with a variety of toppings. Each lunch and dinner, campers can also choose from options at the middle table, including sun-butter and jelly sandwiches, tuna sandwiches and hummus. A salad bar with ample fixings is also available to campers and staff for every meal to either supplement or replace the options on the menu that day.  

Where the Campers Are


The unit of Chalutzim (G-9, G-10A, G-10B, B-9, B-10) left on their backpacking trips today and are sleeping under the stars tonight! The bunks of B-5 and B-6 are also on the Challenge Course today practicing “challenge by choice” and bonding with their bunkmates.


G-1, G-2A and G-2B will be leaving on their backpacking trips, while G-7 and G-8 will be on the challenge course.



What’s so special about today? Today is another super special day at camp, as we are celebrating three staff birthdays! Happy birthday to counselor Nyv B., our dedicated head nurse Stacy D. and Wendy W.one of our camp therapists!

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