Tawonga Tidbit

Tawonga Tidbit

Following a restful Shabbat, Session B campers were excited to get back to their regularly scheduled activities today.

TLI kicked off the day with learning a flashmob to perform for all of Camp after lunch. In funny jazzercise outfits, the teens danced to their hearts’ content on the dining pavilion stage. Later this afternoon, the unit of Carmel gathered for a block of “Getting Gnarly.” Kids splashed in mud puddles, slathered themselves in paint and took a dip in the lake. Having fun with our Camp photographer, these campers loved making their gnarliest faces and poses. It’s always fun to see the kids let loose and get totally silly and carefree during this block. Check out more photos below from the day!
