Lifeguard Services at Camp Tawonga!
Our Founder, Melissa Swanson, had the absolute pleasure of spending 3 nights and 4 days at Camp Tawonga, 7 miles north of Yosemite National Park. This camp consisted of families attending their last Fall Family Camp of the season. Melissa was lifeguarding at the pool and lake while Camp Tawonga's guests enjoyed the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountain range, Tuloumne River and all of the activities that the camp offer which includes: hiking, arts and crafts, archery, swimming and camp fires to name a few. If your family is looking for a summer camp or a family weekend outing at a camp, Camp Tawonga is very high on our list of great camps to enjoy!
About Camp Tawonga
For over 90 years, Camp Tawonga has served as a leader in Jewish camping, fostering in children and families a deep connection to nature, community and Judaism within a warm, welcoming and inclusive environment. Tawonga runs programming for children, families and young adults at our premier residential camp located outside Yosemite National Park as well as in the San Francisco Bay Area. At Tawonga, children and teens build self esteem, make lifelong friends and discover their truest selves, supported by a dedicated and loving staff.
Yosemite-based programs include classic one to three week summer camp sessions, adventure “quest” trips on the road, teen leadership sessions and four-day family camp weekends. Bay Area programs are family-friendly and range from Jewish holiday celebrations and a two-year bar & bat mitzvah program to volunteer outings and Jewish heritage nights with local sports teams.
