An independent residential Jewish summer camp where adventure meets tradition and nature nurtures the soul. Our mission is to provide transformative experiences rooted in joyful Judaism and inclusive community. We believe that immersing children in community building, Jewish values and nature helps them become their best selves. They use the experience of Tawonga to make the world a better place.

Located at the doorstep of Yosemite National Park, on the middle fork of the Tuolumne River, on an expansive 160 acres in the Stanislaus National Forest, Tawonga has been a leader in Jewish camping since 1925.
