Delicious vegetarian and vegan options are available for every meal, in addition to a “middle table” with alternative meal options to meet every camper’s needs.

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 Eilat (G-5, G-6A, G-6B, B-5 and B-6) all left on their backpacking trips today and are connecting with nature while sleeping under the stars tonight! G-3 and G-4 spent part of the day on the Challenge Course building bonds and practicing “challenge by choice.”


The unit of Eilat (G-5, G-6A, G-6B, B-5 and B-6) return from their backpacking trips, while the bunks of B-1 and B-2 leave for the first night of theirs!


Don’t worry, parents! We’ll get B-7, B-8b and B-10 bunk photos tomorrow.



No birthdays today, just the beginning of a beautiful second week of Session II!

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 85, low of 51

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 …

The New York Times recently featured Camp Tawonga for our innovative gender inclusion efforts! Tawonga is offering an all-gender cabin pilot this summer during Session IV for any campers who identify as non-binary. You can read more about the all-gender cabin here.



The Tawonga Tidbit brings you a daily dose of Camp with our kitchen menu, Camp birthdays and more. We hope this series brings you a bit closer to Tawonga!
