Namanu Day Camp in the City is a traditional day camp experience for youth going into kindergarten through 5th grade, fall 2014. Namanu Day Camp brings the Namanu Experience into the city while providing your child hands-on learning opportunities to combat summer learning loss.

Each week will be a unique adventure as we bring to life the imaginary world of a different classic children’s tale. Whether we explore 20,000 Leagues under the Sea or join the Knights of the Round Table, campers will participate in a variety of activities to have fun and keep their brains sharp. A week of Namanu Day Camp includes one full day field trip of outdoor exploration (destinations included in session descriptions), and a variety of unique theme related activities such as cooking projects, science experiments, literacy activities, arts & crafts, theme specific field trips and/or special guests, as well as traditional games, sports, and songs.

Campers are separated by age into small groups, or units, to ensure individualized attention for campers and projects that are geared toward their age group. This means that not all campers are participating in the same activities; the descriptions in Sessions and Themes are general outlines. More detailed descriptions of what each unit can expect will be available soon.


Namanu Day Camp in the City is excited to return for our second season in West Linn at the Willamette United Methodist Church. This site offers easy access to 1-205, 99-E and SR-43 for parents, as well as being directly on the bus line and close to a variety of local businesses to explore and partner with for field trip opportunities for campers. The building itself is a great space that offers various rooms for projects and exploration as well as being within walking distance to Willamette Park, a wonderful green space we will use to heighten the program experience for campers.
