Camp Tawonga is a co-ed residential children’s summer camp located outside Yosemite National Park. The campers range in age from 7-17 and participate in 1-week, 2-week, or 3-week programs throughout the summer.
The Camp Tawonga Staff is a family of about 200 dedicated individuals, working together to create a vital Jewish community where children thrive. This outstanding team includes people with both Jewish and non-Jewish backgrounds.
Camp Tawonga’s mission is to foster a positive self-image for campers, create a cooperative community, teach children to live in partnership with nature and offer children a positive experience of spirituality. The work at Camp is demanding, with long hours, high intensity, and little privacy. The rewards are great: the joy of helping children grow, the beauty of the mountains and river, and the camaraderie of working with other enthusiastic and caring staff.
As a member of our Waterfront Department, this position closely monitors our beautiful Olympic-sized pool, as well as our property's section of the Tuolumne River and a small lake. This position helps create and lead fun water games at the pool and hikes with groups to river areas as a safety monitor and lifeguard. Current lifeguard certification is required. Experience teaching lessons and WSI are strongly preferred.
