2015 Camp Namanu Catalog – Coming Soon!

At Namanu, campers live in cabins with youth of the same gender and age group along with a cabin counselor dedicated to providing the entire cabin with an unforgettable Namanu experience.

All sessions offer general, age-appropriate camp programs that may include cookouts, hiking, archery, swimming, boating, arts & crafts, nature games, and singing. Each cabin group also chooses specific activities for the weekly session. This creates a unique and youth-driven experience each week.

Each grade level outlined below has its own geographically centered unit with a distinct theme and flavor. From the modern, comfortable, and enclosed cabins of Blue Wing to the rustic and picturesque open air tree houses of Balagan, each unit space offers a unique outdoor experience.
