Adventure Awaits

Oregon Coast Camps for Your Entire Family.

Twin Rocks Friends Camp & Conference Center offers a wonderful array of camps and retreats formulated to meet the unique needs of you and your family. Looking for a top-notch summer camp for your kids? Perhaps you’re hoping for a chance to bolster your marriage, or create meaningful family memories with your kids or grandkids. Maybe you’d just like some extended time alone with God, or in-depth conversation with old friends.

Let Twin Rocks bless your family at the Oregon Coast.

Youth Camps. Whether it be making new friends or reconnecting with old ones, sharing deep thoughts with your counselor as they listen to your heart, or realizing anew the love of God through the beauty of creation all around you, Twin Rocks is a place for connection on the deepest levels. Everything that happens at Twin Rocks Friends Camp keeps this focus in mind; from recreation activities that foster fun and fellowship to more focused times such as worship in the Meetinghouse, team-building games, and learning from inspiring teachers. Camps at Twin Rocks strive to promote a rich sense of community while also paying attention to the value of each individual as they are drawn into relationship with their creator.

Adult & Family Conferences. Family camps and adult retreats are all about relationships – relaxing, conversing, worshiping, and playing together. Build sand castles at the beach, sip tea near a cozy fireplace, ride the zip line, roast s’mores, row a boat, take in a round of mini golf, or enjoy a hike through the forest – and simply spend unencumbered time together with family, friends, and God.

The Experience of a Lifetime!

Youth Camps & Programs

Summer camps at Twin Rocks are designed to provide youth with active, adventure-filled experiences within a safe and caring environment. Each camp provides campers with recreational activities, creative uses of the out-of-doors, positive peer interaction, supportive and caring Christian counselors, and solid Bible-based teaching.

A WEEKEND WITH C.S. LEWIS! Join us for an enriching and soul-stirring three-day Seminar by the Sea on the profound ideas of C.S. Lewis’s book, The Four Loves.

What are the dangers of love? What exactly is “Christian love”?

Christian Camp Internship

May 1 - September 6

The Internship Program at Twin Rocks Friends Camp is designed to equip young adults with a deeper understanding of Christ-centered leadership through the development of professional skills, ministry preparedness, and through relevant, formational curriculum within a Christian camp environment. This occurs through behind-the-scenes work, up-front leadership opportunities, interactions with campers and guests, mentoring relationships, and working alongside an intentional community of Twin Rocks staff with a shared purpose and vision.

Young Adult Summer Staff

May 29 - August 12

Being a part of Summer Staff means working hard. Summer Staff rotate regularly between various work assignments, such as washing dishes, preparing meals, working grounds, and cleaning cabins. Some staff participate by working in specialized areas like lifeguarding, archery instruction, or in the camp store. Whatever the task, Summer Staff members work together toward the common goal of developing a servant’s heart.

Twin Rocks Friends Camp’s Servant Leadership Program (SLP) is a five-week summer program for a select group of high school students, chosen for their strong commitment to serving Christ through serving others. It is an incredible opportunity to learn more about leadership, ministry, and service within a fun and Christ-centered community.
