This mission is our guiding philosophy at Tawonga and shapes everything we do—from the programs we facilitate to the way that we lead campers in daily activities. While we do not overtly teach the mission to the campers, it is central to our staff training and is infused in every moment at camp. In fact, many of our past campers reflect upon Tawonga’s mission in their staff interviews without realizing their experience so vividly mirrored our guiding principles. At Camp Tawonga, we foster positive self-image and self-esteem, create a cooperative community, build a partnership with nature, and explore spirituality and positive Jewish identity in children.
