Please remember to mark clothing and items with the camper’s last name, as the camp cannot be responsible for lost items. Lost items are held for 30 days. Also, campers are asked to dress modestly to maintain a Christ-centered environment. Pack clothing that helps maintain a modest appearance.

Please note the following things you can leave at home. Please do not bring:

– Inappropriate or immodest clothing

Notes: Electronic devices, like iPods and cell phones, will be collected from campers and returned to them at checkout. Surfside campers driving their own cars to camp will be asked to turn in their car keys for the week of camp.

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.

What makes Twin Rocks’ camps so successful?

The superb staff. Each camp leadership team includes education and/or youth ministry professionals familiar with camping methods and experiential learning techniques. These leaders relate effectively with today’s young people and are committed to keeping camp fun, engaging, and Christ-centered. Twin Rocks is also blessed with a slate of hand-picked, carefully trained cabin counselors who model Christian commitment and strength of character. This counseling staff provides the backbone to our summer camp program, where purposeful small group activities stand at the core of camp. While campers enjoy an abundance of all-camp activities, it’s the small group discussions that make Twin Rocks camps special. Group-building initiatives create an atmosphere of trust, a place where lasting friendships are forged. Campers have the chance to be heard and cared for.

Twin Rocks Friends Camp is accredited by the American Camp Association, a stamp of approval verifying a camp’s quality programming and excellent safety standards. To receive this accreditation, Twin Rocks passed a rigorous 157-point inspection.

Campers love to get mail!

It is recommended that parents write to their campers at least once during camp. Mail received after a session will be forwarded to the camper’s home address. In addition to the child’s full name, please mark the envelope with the name of the camp they are attending.

The camp mailing address:

c/o Twin Rocks Friends Camp

PO Box 6, Rockaway Beach, OR



Please use 18705 Hwy 101 N., Rockaway Beach, OR 97136, for UPS or FedEx deliveries only.

If you would like to send a one-way email to your child, send it to [email protected]

In light of the limited access to computers, campers aren’t able to reply. Email received after a session is over will not be delivered.

Please avoid sending e-cards or photos, as these are not easily printable.

Twin Rocks can accommodate the following five special diet needs: non-celiac, gluten-free, dairy allergies, diabetic, vegetarian, and vegan.

Twin Rocks is a nut free facility during all summer camps.

If your child has a combination of any of these diets, please contact the camp to discuss dietary options and to determine if the child will need to bring any supplementary items from home.

Special diets must be noted on the Medical History form and submitted to the camp at least two weeks before camp begins.

While most campers will stay healthy, occasionally, people get ill or injured at camp. To deal with such situations, we have at least one registered nurse or physician on duty at each of our residential youth camps. Camp health care operates based on standing orders reviewed and approved annually by our camp physician.

During the registration process, parents will complete their camper’s health form, which includes a section on health history and parental release. Below is an overview of what to expect during camper check-in and while they are at camp.

  • Your child will have a brief health screening on the first day of camp. Campers will be checked for contagious conditions and asked about recent illness or injury. Please thoroughly check for head lice a week or so before camp.
  • Any medications, including prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs, and vitamins, must be turned in to the nurse during registration on the first day of camp.
    • At the end of camp, all containers, including empty ones, will be returned to the parents.
    • All medications sent to the camp must be received in the original container with the label from the pharmacy indicating the name of the drug, dosage, frequency of administration, individual who prescribed it, and the child’s name.
    • Vitamins and over-the-counter products must be in containers clearly labeled with the item description and the child’s name.
  • Dispensing medication and all first aid care are recorded in a daily written log.
  • Please do not take your child off of any doctor-prescribed medication while at camp.

Campers at Kids Camp, Tween Camp, and Surfside Camp will have daily access to Undertow Espresso and Camp Store, where they can buy snacks, drinks, and Twin Rocks apparel.

Apparel from the Camp Store is open all week, and prices range from $12 to $40.

Any money brought by these campers will be kept until checkout.

There may be instances when the camp needs to contact a parent/guardian. The general camp practice is to make contact when there is concern about a person’s health and/or when a situation is not progressing as expected (discipline, homesickness).

If personal contact with parents cannot be made, camp personnel will leave voice messages that appropriately communicate the concern and request a return phone call.

Medical situations that the camp cannot handle will be referred to the Tillamook Hospital Emergency Department. Parents will be notified as soon as possible in cases of emergency or serious illness. If necessary, camp personnel will contact your Emergency Contacts to authorize treatment for your child.

Parents are not normally called for upset stomachs, headaches, scrapes, or bruises.
