Tawonga Tidbit

Today’s Kitchen Menu


Frittata with caramelized onions, roasted red pepper, spinach and gouda served with a side of biscuits


Penne pasta with spinach, cherry tomatoes and parmesan

Fruit: Apples


Banquet! Each session, we celebrate our time together with a Thanksgiving-inspired feast of roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce and mushroom gravy

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 enjoying the last full day of Session III


Campers board the buses and head home. We miss them already!!



What is so special about today? Well, we are celebrating the birthdays of Seth K., Mattias S. and Mozi T., three of our amazing Session III campers as well as Aaron M. one of our Jewish programmers today! Besides those four special people, we are also celebrating Avi H., who will have the rare opportunity to celebrate his birthday tomorrow before boarding the busses to head home. What a special day!

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

How’s the Weather? ☀️

Partly cloudy with a high of 93, low of 67 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.

As Session III comes to a close, we want to remind you that the community that we have built together over the past three weeks is forever! There are tons of ways to stay in touch including through our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages.
