Camp Tawonga


Tawonga encourages positive growth in a nurturing environment. For our staff, this means the children always come first. It also means that counselors and all other staff are trained to focus on the needs of the individual child—to know and value all children for their unique talents and qualities.

Sleep-away camp is full of challenges—from being away from home to backpacking for the first time—and we believe that by supporting campers to succeed in these new challenges, we promote independence, growth, and self-esteem. Parents often tell us that their children return home at the end of a Tawonga program buoyed with greater self-esteem than when they arrived
