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


Everyone is in Camp today celebrating a restful first Shabbat of session III.


TLI (our Teen Leadership Institute) gets to go on the Challenge Course and expand their comfort zones tomorrow!



Happy birthday to Amy A. and Maya K.  two of our amazing Session III campers, and Michael W. our outstanding head of Jewish programming! Another super special day at Camp Tawonga. 

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


How’s the Weather? ☀️

High 98, low of 63. It’s a scorcher out there today, perfect for hanging out in one of our many bodies of water!

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.


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!
