Professional, Dedicated and Loving
Our dedicated staff is made up of over 160 individuals, many of whom have been Tawonga campers themselves. Our camper to staff ratio is 1 to 1.5, providing the children with an incredibly supportive experience that ensures their physical and emotional well-being at all times.
For nine months of the year, Tawonga staff members go to school, work, travel and give back to their communities — living Tawonga’s values in their daily lives. During the summer months, they bring these experiences to their work with our campers.
Working at Camp Tawonga is often described by staff as “one of the hardest jobs they’ve ever loved.” All staff live at Camp throughout the entire summer and work long hours to create a loving, welcoming and supportive environment where campers can thrive and live our mission.
We only hire adults. Our staff must be at least 18 years old and have completed high school. The majority of our staff are college-aged, and we hire post-college adults with more advanced degrees or camp experience for our supervisory positions. The application process includes a written application, interview, and reference checks.
