🌽 Quesadillas with black beans and corn salsa

🍏 Fruit: Apples


🍝 Spaghetti with marinara sauce and ground beef with roasted vegetables and dinner rolls

A Note on Alternative Foods
🥑 Tasty 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 too), in addition to hot cereal with toppings. Each lunch and dinner, campers can choose from options at the middle table, like sun-butter and jelly sandwiches, tuna sandwiches and hummus. 

🏕 Backpacking Trips and Challenge Course

There are no backpacking trips or Challenge Course days at the start of Session B. Everyone is in Camp today!

🎂 Birthdays

☀️ How’s the Weather? 

Sunny with a high of 100, low of 69

On an especially hot day like today, counselors always make sure that campers stay hydrated, wear sunscreen and cool off in the pool or the beautiful Tuolumne river. Campers also unwind in the shade of their cabin during the hottest time of the day, Rest Hour.

🎭 Health Note 

A quick note on COVID protocols at Camp this session: For the first week of the session, campers will be wearing masks when with other campers who are not in their bunk. They will also be wearing masks when indoors (not including their own bunks), such as in the bathrooms. Most of the time, campers will be outside, including for meals in our outdoor dining pavilion, and for most programming. When campers are with their bunkmates, they do not need to wear masks.

Once every camper receives a negative COVID test five days into the session, we will be able to relax some of these protocols, including that units (bunks of similar aged campers) will be able to be together unmasked. Our COVID protocols are guided by Tawonga’s COVID-19 Task Force and are in compliance with the CDC.
