Where the Campers Are


Campers from the unit of Eilat (B-5, B-6, G-5, G-6A and G-6B) left on their elective day hike today, while the unit of Haifa (B-7, B-8A, B-8B, G-7 and G-8) left for their backpacking trips and are spending their first night in the beautiful backcountry tonight. B-1 and B-2 are also on the Challenge Course today challenging themselves and expanding their comfort zones.

Today is a super special day at Camp as we are celebrating four birthdays today! Happy birthday to Ruby B., Ashley G., Matan L-K. and Emmet V. four super special members of our Camp Tawonga community who get to celebrate their birthdays in the best place on Earth.

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


How’s the Weather? ☀️

Sunny with a high of 96, low of 65 today

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.

Our Teen Leadership Institute (TLI) focuses on leadership development, service learning and outdoor experience and takes place during Session III! This program, now in its third year, connects campers to the broader community and teaches them how to be stewards of our planet. Check out the TLI spotlight here to learn more about how this innovative program is positively affecting the ways in which campers connect to their communities.
