Where the Campers Are


The units of Carmel and Galil went on their day hikes today, while the unit of Chalutzim and TLI enjoy another night in the backcountry. B-5 & B-6 are on the challenge course making their bonds stronger and expanding their comfort zones today!


Chalutzim and TLI return from their trips tomorrow just in time for Shabbat!



What’s so special about today? It’s Maisie K’s birthday! Happy birthday to one of our amazing Session III campers.

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 92, low of 63

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.
