Teens sleep under the stars, share leadership, and learn new skills in a supportive, small-group environment. Each trip follows a different itinerary and offers unique outdoor activities, like backpacking, rock climbing, sea kayaking and river rafting, which are designed to challenge, empower and inspire. Teens choose the music, set the menu, and work together – it’s like a road trip with a dozen friends into the great outdoors. Tawonga’s four-part mission of fostering positive self-image and self-esteem, creating cooperative community, encouraging a deep appreciation of nature and exploring Jewish identity and spirituality come to life on this unique off-site experience.
