Guide To Summer Camps
What we're all about...
Camp Tawonga is a co-ed residential camp located just outside Yosemite National Park on the beautiful Tuolumne River. Our mission of self-esteem, community, appreciation for nature, and fostering positive Jewish identity is woven through all our programs. Learn more about Tawonga, from summer camp for children to weekend programs, to teen leadership, travel, and service learning at www.tawonga.org.Camp Tawonga is committed to its philosophy of group-centered camping, giving counselors freedom to focus on the minute-to-minute and day-to-day experiences of each camper and of their bunk as a whole, while program specialists use their skills to lead the wide array of activities that Tawonga offers. In addition, each bunk backpacks in Yosemite National Park or the surrounding Stanislaus National Forest and spends a day on the Challenge Course, core programs which underscore this group-centered philosophy. Retreats & conferences accepted.
