A Partnership with
Nature at Yosemite

Camp Tawonga has been a leader in Jewish camping since 1925, fostering in children and families a deep connection to nature, community and Judaism within a warm, welcoming and inclusive environment. Campers can attend summer sessions at our beautiful Yosemite location, living twelve to a bunk in rustic cabins, guided and supported by two loving counselors.   Campers build self-confidence and the deepest of friendships while discovering the joy and sense of belonging of Jewish community. Four-day weekend family camp offerings at our wilderness site are an amazing way to experience all the key elements of a camp session. Excellent childcare, dynamic activities, and a vibrant, spiritual Shabbat celebration make these programs an unforgettable family vacation, and a wonderful way to try camp together as a family.


Camp Tawonga offers sessions at our Yosemite-based location ranging from 1, 2, 2.5 and 3 week for rising 2nd-10th graders. Rising 7th to 10th graders can also choose from epic Adventure Travel Quests while older teens can apply for leadership programs like Staff In-Training or our service-focused Teen Leadership Institute. We also offer three and four day adult and family weekends in the spring and fall. More info is available on our website -


Located at the doorstep of Yosemite National Park, on the middle fork of the Tuolumne River, Camp Tawonga’s breathtaking property and surroundings help children and families unplug and unwind for a true outdoor camping experience.

The Tawonga Bond

Informed by Tawonga’s group-centered philosophy, campers live, eat, and play as a cohesive bunk unit, forming indelible bonds that last long after the summer. The bond crystalizes during a transformative overnight backpacking trip in Yosemite — an epic experience for all campers in our two to three-week sessions. Tawonga takes more people into Yosemite than any other organization!
