Tawonga Tidbit

We kicked off today with a special song session, singing music exclusively by female artists. The campers loved it! Below, check out some other highlights from the day!
You’ll see our TLI teens getting ready to do service work with the Yosemite Land Trust and B-5 and B-6 having some fun in the pool during unit swim. Then, over at A&C, check out B-7 and G-8 getting crafty with our “sculpti” clay, and G-7 making the camp classic, shrinky dinks!

Counselors remind campers every day to drink water throughout the day and to apply (and re-apply) sunscreen. These kids are in good hands!

🎤 Fun Fact!

For ten years, starting in 1985, Tawonga rented our site out to the West Coast Women’s Music and Comedy Festival. Every fall, Tawonga was host to 3,000 guests over Labor Day weekend for a joyous festival in the mountains. Click here to read more.
