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.

 

 

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.
