We learned a lot this past summer while hosting cabin rentals and working closely with groups like the American Camp Association (ACA), Alliance of Oregon Camps Association, and our local government which has helped us feel cautiously optimistic for summer 2021.
Camp Namanu is considering multiple approaches to safety and risk management. You have our promise that we will choose the best and safest way to serve this community based on the current guidelines, state of cases, testing, and vaccinations by mid-2021.
We will collect a $75 non-refundable deposit at registration but we have decided to wait until spring to collect any other camp fees. Over the coming months we will release more information about changes to camp’s structure, safety protocols, and session capacity. All of these adjustments will help us keep campers, families, and staff safe while still delivering the magical experience of camp.
We look forward to welcoming all of you back to the beautiful forest of Camp Namanu in 2021!
See you on the Sandy,
Camp Namanu Team
Camp Namanu (“Nuh-MAH-Noo”) is one of the largest and oldest youth camps in the region, operating continuously since 1924 on the banks of the Sandy River. Camp Namanu is the signature summer program of Camp Fire Columbia, a nonprofit youth development organization serving 3,000 youth annually in programs year-round, in-school, after-school and all summer long.
