Tawonga Tidbit

Tawonga Tidbit

The balance continues at Camp – moving through a deep loss in the community while simultaneously running our typical fun and exciting programming that supports children to have magical, transformative experiences.

Each day, while healing as a community, we are also observing campers strengthen their sacred bonds of friendship, grow their self confidence and feel a true sense of belonging within our supportive, loving Jewish community. Enjoy photos below from the lake, A & C and other favorite spots around Camp.
