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

1. Select your cabin unit or week of Namanu Day Camp in the City on the Camp Namanu website.

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 the following 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 the registration website, you will initially establish a Customer Account with a Login Name and Password. If you attended any Camp Fire Columbia camp program in Summer 2016 or are in the Before and After School Program 2016-17, you already have an account. Your username is the email address used for that registration. If you’ve forgotten your password please follow the prompts on the log-in page to reset your password. Please skip ahead to Step 3.

To create a new account, create the account under the head of household and create a family member entry for each camper registered.  

A) Click Create New Account field. Find this option after clicking on Add to Cart for a specific activity or at the registration log-in page.

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!

3. Register for Camp

On the page listing Activities for registration, click on the Add to Cart button to the right of your chosen activity. Answer the questions that follow (Years at Namanu, cabin mate request, etc.) Required questions will be marked with a star.
