Tawonga Tidbit

Tawonga Tidbit

As you might have guessed, it was another fun, adventure-filled day at Session B! Just a few highlights are below.

Eilat explored Camp on their unit scavenger hunt, finding exciting treasures along the way. B-11 made some very cool wired jewelry at A&C. And our All-Gender bunks enjoyed a delicious ice cream social on the back porch with some funny icebreaker games. See more below in today’s photo gallery.

P.S. Want a behind-the-scenes peek into how meals work at Tawonga and how the campers contribute to the process? Check out this post from last session!

🏳️‍🌈 Fun Fact!

Keshet LGBTQ Family Camp was founded at Camp Tawonga in 1998 by Deborah Newbrun, our former Camp Director. Keshet means “rainbow” in Hebrew, and at Tawonga, Keshet is one way we celebrate the wide arc of diversity within our community (see Keshet in action here).

The Tawonga Tidbit provides a daily dose of Camp with our kitchen menu, Camp birthdays and more. We hope this series brings you a bit closer to Tawonga!
