View the 2015 Camp Namanu schedule here!

At Namanu through community we help build confident, independent leaders who are able to engage and thrive in their world. 

At Namanu, campers live in cabins with youth of the same gender and age group.  A cabin counselor sleeps in the cabin with campers 6th grade and under to providing the entire cabin with an unforgettable Namanu experience.  For our campers in 7th grade and up in main camp and our Ranch program, a counselor sleeps near the cabin to begin to allow for independence in our older campers. 

All sessions offer general, age-appropriate camp programs that may include cookouts, hiking, swimming, boating, arts & crafts, nature, and singing. As kids grow up at Namanu new programs become available to them such as archery, climbing wall and challenge courses.  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. 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.  Photos of many parts of camp are available on our Rental page here.
