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 Galil (G-3, G-4, B-3, B-4A and B-4B) left on their backpacking trips today, while G-1, G-2A and G-2B returned to Camp this afternoon after a beautiful two-day backpacking trip. The bunks of G-5, G-6A and G-6B were on the Challenge Course strengthening their bonds and challenging themselves.


Everyone returns to Camp to get ready for Shabbat!



There are no birthdays to celebrate at Camp today, but did you know that Tawonga is celebrating our 94th birthday this year? Check out this link to learn more about Camp’s history, and stay tuned for information on our 95th anniversary gala next year!

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 77, low of 52

During the hottest time of the day, campers relax in the shade of their cabins during Rest Hour. In case you missed it, check out this post on what a “typical day” at Camp Tawonga looks like.


Did You Know …

Camp Tawonga is a second home for thousands of kids, teens and adults across the country. It is a space in which campers can connect with nature, build a strong community, and be the most authentic version of themselves. Check out this video produced by a Tawonga staff alum to see what makes Camp such a special place.
