Since the first “conference” in 1918 to now, God has blessed the dreams, faith, vision, and work of hundreds of people. What foresight it must have taken for these pioneers to literally carve out space in overgrown salal and rotting logs to make room for their tents and crude cook stoves on Twin Rocks Friends Camp’s present site. But the rewards of Christian fellowship, spiritual birth and growth, and fun on the Oregon coast far outweighed any sacrifice.
During the years since 1918, each generation has built upon historic foundations. Concerned people were always there to meet a need. The vision has not changed! Today, as always, new niches of ministry, outreach, site, and facility improvements are being carved out as a result of vision and trust in God.
