Your Wedding Naturally

Camp Namanu is a Youth Camp set on 552 acres of lush Northwest forest situated along the Wild and Scenic Sandy River.  We offer a variety of historic lodges and cabins for your wedding celebration in a beautiful, private, and natural setting. Camp Namanu is the perfect space for your DIY wedding.

Camp Namanu’s Wedding Package offers private use of Camp Namanu Main Camp (excluding facilities not rented). This includes ceremony and reception space for up to 300 guests and 2 nights lodging for up to 100 guests. You can add additional sleeping areas and activities to make your wedding more fun for more people!

Our Rental FAQ may answer some of your basic questions about a Namanu Wedding, as well. Contact our Rental Manager to schedule your tour!

Have More Fun!

Namanu offers a range of activities to round out the fun for your wedding weekend!  Climb to great heights on the Climbing Tower, brave the High Circuit on the Challenge Course, shoot to thrill on the Archery Range, or cool off in the Swimming Pool. All Extra Activities must be booked 6 months in advance, and not all Activities are available year-round.

See our Wedding Rental Agreement and Rules for prices, details, and seasonal availability!

A Camp Namanu Wedding is about sharing a special day in a special place with special people.

You bring the linens 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. After the reception, gather around the camp fire with your closest friends and watch the sparks disappear up into the starry skies of nighttime.

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 wood smoke, 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 the love you shared with your partner, your family, and your friends under the swaying trees at Camp Namanu.
