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 Galil (B-3, B-4A, B-4B, G-3 and G-4) along with G-1, G-2A and G-2B all left to go backpacking with our hardworking and dedicated wilderness staff today! B-7, B-8A and B-8B are on the Challenge Course today expanding their comfort zones.


The backpacking trips that departed today return after a magical night in the backcountry.



What’s so special about today? We’re celebrating the birthday of Joseph D.  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 60 today

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 …

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.
