Delicious 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 available as well), in addition to hot cereal with a variety of toppings. Each lunch and dinner, campers can also choose from options at the middle table, including sun-butter and jelly sandwiches, tuna sandwiches and hummus. A salad bar with ample fixings is also available to campers and staff for every meal to either supplement or replace the options on the menu that day.  

Where the Campers Are


Campers in Chalutzim (B-9, B-10, G-9, G-10A and G-10B) went on their elective day hike today! The unit of Haifa are on the second night of their backpacking trips, getting some extended time together in the beautiful backcountry. Lastly, G-5, G-6A and G-6B were on the Challenge Course today getting outside their comfort zones and strengthening the bonds they have been building all session.


Haifa returns from backpacking tomorrow just in time for the carnival!



What’s so special about today? Happy birthday to  Casey V. and Jake W. two of our amazing Session III campers who get to celebrate their special days with a very special Camp Tawonga birthday bowl!

Here’s what celebrating a birthday at Camp Tawonga looks like. (Hint: It’s pretty special.)

How’s the Weather? ☀️

Partly cloudy with a high of 94, low of 67

During the hottest time of the day, campers relax in the shade of their cabins during Rest Hour. Additionally, counselors always make sure that campers stay hydrated, wear sunscreen and cool off in the pool or the beautiful Tuolomne river, which are all especially important during hot days like today. In case you missed it, check out this post on what a “typical day” at Camp Tawonga looks like.
