The Magic of Namanu

Uniquely Oregon

DISCOVER CAMP NAMANU

Camp Namanu (“Nuh-MAH-Noo”) is one of the largest, longest lasting 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  – 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 love Namanu and the flexibility received in organizing our own activities and our lunch. We loved walking to the ranch for a fun pique nique. We thank you.
