Excellent Facilities: While Twin Rocks has existed since 1918, most of its meeting rooms and sleeping accommodations have been constructed or completely remodeled within the past 20 years.
Sleeping Accommodations: 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.
Meeting Rooms: 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.
Recreation: The recreational highlight for most groups coming to Twin Rocks is the delightful seven-mile stretch of Pacific beach just one block from the camp. The camp derives its name from the majestic “twin rocks” just off-shore. Other options include disc "Frisbee" golf; miniature golf; a fresh-water lake for swimming, boating and fishing; hiking trails; a recreation field; horseshoes; and a playground for small children. In addition, our gymnasium provides a fully winterized building in which to play basketball, volleyball, ping pong, foosball, billiards, air hockey, and shuffleboard.
Food Service: 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.

Quaker Heritage: 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.
Harbor Villa Retreat Center: Twin Rocks Friends Camp also owns Harbor Villa Retreat Center, located on the beach a mile north of the main camp. Harbor Villa is an ideal location for retreat groups of 10 to 40 people who prefer to cook for themselves.
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.
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.
