Registering for our Summer Programs is as easy as 1, 2, 3…

1. Select your cabin unit for Namanu Resident Camp or Ranch. Looking for Camp Fire Day Camp registration instructions? Click here. 

Blue Wing, Kiwanis, Balagan… oh my! Units at Camp Namanu Resident Camp and Namanu Ranch are organized by the grade the camper will be going into in the fall. After you’ve found the camp program that’s right for your child, click the ‘Register Now’ button. Note that you will be sent to our registration site to complete steps 2 and 3. The information below will be helpful in navigating that process.

2. If you haven’t done so already, create your account. When registering for any activities on our website, you will initially establish a Customer Account with a Login Name and Password. If you attended any Camp Fire Columbia Summer camp program since 2016 or the Before and After School Program since 2016, you already have an account. Your username is the email address you used for those previous registrations. If you’ve forgotten your password please follow the prompts on the log-in page to reset your password, or you may call the registrar at 971-340-1608. Please skip ahead to Step 3.

If you do not already have an accountyou will need to create a new account for the head of household, and you will also have to create a family member entry for each camper you are registering. 

  1. A) Click on the Create New Account You may find this option after clicking on Add to Cart for a specific activity or at the registration log-in page.
  2. B) Complete the form for New Account Request, including all required fields for you as Head of Household (select the Over 18 option rather than Date of Birth, enter Email Address, etc.) and click submit. Please submit your request only once.

Once you have an online registration account, you will have the opportunity to add family member(s). For each participating camper under the age of 18 you must enter a date of birth.

Once your account is established, you can login at any time to sign up for more sessions, see your receipt, and more!

For Resident Camp and Namanu Ranch:

Registrations require an initial payment/deposit of $100.  If families are unable to pay the deposit please call our registrar at 971-340-1608 to discuss options.

A 20% payment is then due on January 16th, a 30% payment on March 19 and the remaining balance on May 26 for all sessions but the Mini’s, which have one payment due after the deposit. The January, March and May payments will be made/scheduled through the registration auto-payment system. For other arrangements for the auto-payment dates, please contact the Registration team in the Camp Fire Office after your registration is complete. If you register just after a payment date, your payment at registration will include your deposit plus the amount due by that payment date. There is a $15 transfer fee when you transfer sessions.

Camp Fire Columbia is offering Early Bird registration if you register by 11:59 PM on December 1st, 2019. The only additional discount for Camp Namanu programming is a discount for campers returning in their 3-5th year, 6-9th year or 10th year, available upon request. We will work with you to apply whichever discount, early bird or returner, will provide you with the greatest deal. Only one discount may be used per camper, but a family with multiple campers may apply the discount to each camper where it’s considered appropriate. I

Our financial aid application can be found here campnamanu.org/financial-aid. We review and update this document annually and may make changes during the off season. We will post the updated version by January 15th annually. We will begin reviewing financial aid applications in the spring on a rolling basis until funds run out. We recommend applying early if possible, but we will do our best to provide aid to all families that require it.

For all Camp programs:

All payments are automatically deducted from the original payment source on the payment schedule stated above. You may choose to pay earlier than the deadline, or pay by a different method by logging into your account.

During the payment process, you will have the opportunity to add a Namanu t- shirt, or depending on your camper’s age, a Trail Ride or an Adventure Day. Trail Rides and Adventures Days are limited and fill up quickly so be sure to register early.

Enter your electronic check (preferred for lower fees charged to Camp Fire) or credit card information on the Payment Information Page and read/agree to the required waiver(s). Click Continue. This system accepts Electronic Check, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.

*Please Note: The name and address must match those that are on file with your credit company. If the address shown is not your credit card billing address, click on the My Account button and change your residential address to match your credit card billing address.

Once your payment has been approved, your receipt will display. Please print a copy of your receipt for your records. The receipt will also be sent to your email.
