Camp Namanu offers a variety of Lodges and Meeting Spaces to accommodate your program. Building capacities range from 300 to a dozen, so your event, large or small will be comfortable and special. You can add additional sleeping areas and activities to make your event more fun for more people!

You determine the buildings and overnight cabins you need for your program, how many activities you’d like to participate in, and how many days/nights you’ll need for the best possible experience. Download our Rental Agreement and Rental Spaces and Activities Form to see capacities and prices. Rentals over $7000 have private use of the site, excluding spaces not rented.

A Camp Namanu Experience is about sharing special times in a special place with special people.

You bring the sleeping bag and we’ll supply the 100 year-old Douglas fir trees. We don’t have fancy china plates, but we do have the Wild and Scenic Sandy River. At the end of the day gather around the camp fire with your closest friends and watch the sparks disappear up into the starry night skies of Oregon.

We’re not a resort. We’re not a hotel.
We are 552 acres of magic forest and rustic cabins.

When you smell warm fir sap and woodsmoke, or when you hear the wind through the leaves of a big leaf maple tree, you’ll remember your special time at Camp Namanu. You’ll remember the fun, the beauty, and how you grew along with your youth, family, your colleagues, and your friends under the swaying trees at Camp Namanu.
