Overview

Conducted on a 220-acre site on the shores of Lake Vernon, Tawingo's daily program includes an interest group period, afternoon recreational options and allotments of free time. Interest groups emphasize skill acquisition in the areas of nature, camp craft, swimming, canoeing and tripping.
