Being on Staff
The Camp Tawonga Staff is a family of over 200 dedicated staff, working together to create a vibrant Jewish community where children have a safe, meaningful summer in the beautiful Sierra Mountains. The campers’ experience is the focus of all staff, whether counselor or prep cook, lifeguard or backpacking leader, office staff or driver. The work is demanding, with long hours, high intensity, and little privacy.
