Twin Rocks Friends Camp and Conference Center is located on the beautiful Oregon coast, just a block from the beach. The camp is situated on 120 wooded acres, with mountain trails, a lakefront, and modern accommodations for more than 300 persons. Each year more than 13,000 individuals utilize Twin Rocks Friends Camp for such purposes as youth retreats, summer camps, outdoor schools, Elderhostels, men’s / women’s church retreats and family camps. The camp enjoys an extremely loyal clientele, with guest groups returning year after year to enjoy retreats at Twin Rocks.
Sleeping accommodations are available in 20 separate cabins, one large dormitory, and a motel-style lodge. All of these facilities are fully winterized and carpeted, and all but two are equipped with restrooms. Most of the units have been strategically designed for multiple use — meeting the unique needs of both youth, families, and adults.
Historic Hadley Hall, built in 1935, is named for Chester Hadley, whose inspiration led tothe founding of Twin Rocks Friends Camp in 1918. Today, Hadley Hall remains the camp’s largest building, and serves as an ideal location for women’s retreats, family conferences, and youth camps.
At the eastern edge of the meadow are six cottages known collectively as the Shorebird Cabins, totaling 88 beds (105 bed spaces if two are placed in each double bed) in 17 rooms. At the north end is Twin Rocks’ newest and most deluxe cabin, known as Osprey. In the center are Heron, Pelican, and Sandpiper. To the south sit the more rustic (no bath inside) Kilchis and Quechua.
The Cabins of the Trees are among Twin Rocks Friends Camp’s most popular. They are carpeted, comfortable, and versatile. Each cabin is equipped with two full restrooms.
Twin Rocks has a number of carpeted meeting rooms of various sizes: the Meetinghouse has padded chairs and seating for 350 and the Shelter (our gymnasium) seats 600. Two other rooms accommodate up to 100, and several more seat around 50. The camp’s largest meeting rooms are equipped with public address systems, video projection, and pianos.
A grand fireplace, high vaulted ceilings, and magnificent picture windows make the 60-seat meeting room in Pacific Woods Lodge a relaxing space with great natural ambiance. Coffee/tea self-service, small kitchen, couches, piano keyboard, PA system, and available video projection add appreciated amenities to this room.
The Meetinghouse, with its 350-person capacity, is the camp’s largest traditional meeting space. Originally constructed in 1928, the Meetinghouse retains natural wood and a camp-like charm while being fully outfitted with video projection and quality sound system. Upon request, chairs can be removed from the central seating area to allow campers to sit informally on the carpeted floor.
Upper Friendship Center. With seating for over 100 people, a large propane fireplace, and great location (adjacent to the camp Dining Center), the 2,000 square foot upper Friendship Center meeting room is a Twin Rocks favorite.
Lower Friendship. Normally, the lower portion of Friendship Center is set up as a lounge space. Its comfortable log furniture and propane fireplace make it an ideal location for small group gatherings. A computer station and password-protected wi-fi access make it a popular place for individuals to check email during adult conferences. If requested, lower Friendship Center may be converted to a meeting space for groups of up to 50 people.
Tillamook Bay Room. With seating for up to 100, the Tillamook Bay Room is the largest in historic Hadley Hall. The room enjoys large picture windows with views across the meadow. A piano, PA system, and coffee self-service are frequently-utilized amenities.
Memorial Lounge. This intimate lounge with fireplace and sofas is a favorite among adults. It can be used as a quiet meeting room for up to 45 people.
Netarts Bay Room. Netarts Bay Room in the lower level of Hadley Hall seats up to 60 people and comes equipped with a residential-style kitchen for snack preparation. The room may be sub-divided in two with an accordion-style divider. When sub-divided, the south half of Netarts Bay Room can be used as an overflow sleeping area (5 sets of bunk beds line the south wall).
Twin Rocks offers two options for individuals seeking personal prayer retreats:
The Prayer Lookout (described on this page), for those desiring time alone in a prayer cabin; and
Sabbath by the Sea, for people desiring a personal retreat under the tutelage of a spiritual director or guide, and in the community of others.
The Prayer Lookout provides a setting that makes it easy to listen to God. The purpose of the Prayer Lookout is to provide a quiet location for prayer, Christian meditation, personal Bible Study, and private relationship building with the Lord.
Twin Rocks Friends Camp is located one block from a magnificent, 7-mile Pacific Ocean coastline. This beach is publicly-owned (as are all ocean beaches in Oregon), and the Camp makes frequent use of it for a wide array of activities. Just offshore stand two large rock formations from which the Camp derives its “Twin Rocks” name.
Twin Rocks Friends Camp’s athletic field (known as Cammack Field) provides a wonderful grassy space for outdoor camp activities. It is about the size of a softball field (it even comes with a backstop) or soccer field, and is frequently utilized for all-camp recreational events.
The large A-Frame gymnasium known as The Shelter provides an excellent area to play basketball and volleyball. In addition, it houses numerous other activities, including ping pong, air hockey, foosball and billiards. The Shelter is regularly used year-round for small and large group activities and is especially appreciated during inclement weather. Lounge chairs and small group gatherings add to its function as a main hub of activity for the camp. Upon request, the Shelter can be set up with chairs to accommodate large groups of up to 600 persons.
The Extreme Swing is one of Twin Rocks’ favorite camp activities. Use of the Extreme Swing is available seasonally, with advanced reservations required. An hourly fee applies to pay for supervisory staff.
The camp’s food service staff receives great reviews from guest groups, especially for its homemade breads and other baked goods. Special assistance is available for some individuals with specific dietary needs, including diabetics and vegetarians.
Twin Rocks is owned by the evangelical Friends Church, and was founded in 1918. Approximately 25 percent of the camp’s use each year is by the Friends Church, with the remaining 75 percent made up of groups from other Christian denominations and a wide range of not-for-profit organizations.
