How’s the Weather? ☀️

Another beautiful sunny day with a high of 86 and a low of 54

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 …

At Camp Tawonga, we strive to be a community of mensches. Now, you may be asking, “What does that even mean?” Luckily, this video shot at Tawonga a few years back will answer that question, and show that being a mensch can take on many different forms.
