Description/Summary A Jewish camping experience with other gay families. Keshet Camp is for gathering together to take pride in and give thanks for the families LGBT people have been able to create. You'll celebrate Shabbat and Havdalah; sing, hike, climb at the ropes course; and have discussion groups. You'll have time to spend with your children and time to enjoy other adults while the Keshet staff cares for your kids. If you are considering parenting or just love being with gay families, you're welcome to join the Camp Tawonga experience.
Additional notes Camp Tawonga is located in California on 160 acres at the middle fork of the Tuolumine River and surrounded by millions of acres of the Stanislus National Park. The camp, a non-profit service of the San Francisco Bay area Jewish Community, offers a summer camp and series of weekend and family camps throughout the spring and summer. Keshet Family Camp is a three-night four-day weekend experience for LGBT families and friends.
