Love kids? Then come play with us this summer at Camp Namanu!


At Camp Fire Columbia, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to find and pursue their spark – a passion that inspires and drives them to set and achieve goals for their future.

Camp Namanu (Nuh-MAH-Noo) is a welcoming, empowering place for kids entering grades 1-12 to spend their summer. (Namanu Day Camp in the City starts at grade K.) Kids can stay at camp for as little as three days or for up to two weeks between July and August. Ready to join us and make magic happen this summer?

Camp Fire Columbia operates programs in 20 schools throughout the Portland metro area and at our renowned 552-acre summer camp, Namanu. We utilize best practices in extended-day academic support, mentoring, summer sports and recreation, and experiential learning activities. Providing our high-quality services requires a stellar team of 150 people per year. From working directly with youth outdoors or in school, to fundraising, to office administration, there is a place for you at Camp Fire Columbia. We seek a broadly diverse staff who can authentically teach, mentor, and support the youth we serve.

As a Camp Fire staff member, you’ll be part of a dynamic, engaged team working to help every kid find their spark, lift their voice, and discover who they are.
