Camp Namanu (“Nuh-MAH-Noo”) is one of the largest 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.

Voted Willamette Week’s Best Summer Camp four years in a row – Camp Namanu is a signature Oregon experience.  Find out why!

We offer diverse programs to fit every family’s needs.

  • Resident Camp is a traditional sleepaway experience at our 552-acre camp near Sandy, OR.
  • Namanu Ranch gives young equestrians the chance to take care of their very own horse for one full week.

RENTER TESTIMONIALS

We’ve used the Camp Namanu challenge course for several years and couldn’t ask for a more perfect location. Several of our students don’t frequently experience the outdoors and Namanu provides a beautiful wilderness setting, just outside the city, rain or shine. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and truly in the hospitality business.
