Camp Namanu works to provide an inclusive and youth-led experience for all its campers. By living and working together in a community, campers gain skills to care for the world around them. Activities that get youth outside of their comfort zones and inspire them to become confident and engaged leaders.

At Namanu, campers live in cabins with youth of the same age group. Counselors stay in the same cabins as our younger campers (7th grade and below) to provide supervision and safety. For older campers, a counselor sleeps near the cabin to encourage independence and responsibility.

All sessions offer age-appropriate activities that may include cookouts, hiking, swimming, boating, arts & crafts, exploring nature, and singing. As kids grow up at Namanu, new programs become available to them, such as archery, overnight hikes, and high ropes challenge courses. Youth can also create their own unique session by choosing specific activities with their cabin group.

Spaces for each unit range from modern, comfortable, and enclosed cabins of Blue Wing to the rustic and picturesque open-air tree houses of Balagan, each unit space offers an exceptional outdoor experience.

Unit assignments are based on the camper’s grade for next school year. Each week of camp throughout the summer has been assigned a session number (Session 1, Session 2, etc.). Full sessions are six days and five nights, with drop-offs happening on Sunday and pick-ups on Friday.

Online registration is restricted 7 calendar days prior to the session or program start date.  To register within 7 days prior to a session start date, you must call the Registrar at 971-340-1608, or email Registrar@campfirecolumbia.org. Please note that the Registrar office hours are Mon-Fri, 9am-4pm.
