Twin Rocks Main Camp Facilities
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.
Pacific Woods Lodge
Nestled in the forest among tall spruce and hemlock trees, Pacific Woods Lodge is a favorite for couples retreats, men’s and women’s retreats, and other adult conferences. Pacific Woods Lodge is Twin Rocks’ most deluxe facility. The Lodge’s 16 private rooms are each equipped with a queen-sized bed with a cozy duvet and a full bath. Fourteen of the rooms also have twin-sized bunks. Bed linens and bath towels are provided.
One of the most striking features of the Pacific Woods Lodge is its meeting room. The 36 foot vaulted ceiling with cathedral windows and the large stone fireplace create an inviting setting. Meeting amenities include a TV/VCR, compact disc player, group address system, electronic keyboard, flip charts/easel, and a video projection system. Complimentary coffee and tea service are conveniently provided.
Historic Hadley Hall, built in 1935, is named for Chester Hadley, whose inspiration led to the 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.
This dormitory-style building has seven restrooms. Hadley Hall has 97 beds (and 122 bed spaces when two are placed in each double bed). Rooms on the facility’s first floor are handicapped-accessible.
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.
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.
Welcome Center & Undertow Espresso
The Welcome Center is the first place that a guest director should come check in to the guest services front office. With good coffee, our gift shop, and a good place to sit and read or chat, Undertow Espresso serves as a social hub of camp. It is a great place for small meetings like any coffee shop, it’s also a place where prayer happens quite a bit for those that prefer a good coffee with their prayer.
Pacific Woods Lodge
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 serves as Twin Rocks Friends Camp’s largest traditional meeting room, with space for up to 350 people, 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.
This multi-functional facility works well for groups large and small, and for a wide variety of activities – from skits to concerts, from chapel services to table games.
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.
Front Office. Also in lower Friendship Center are the camp’s guest services staff, available to assist with any camper needs.
Hadley Hall Meeting Space
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).
The Shelter & Central Restrooms
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.
A Kiddie Korral play structure on the west side of the Shelter provides outdoor fun for children, and a Shelter Patio (complete with patio furniture, small amphitheater and fire pit ) merges with a grassy greenway on the east side of the building.
Central restrooms are attached to the shelter and are a great place to wash up from the beach, lakeshore or a particularly messy recreation activity so you don’t drag all the sand and mess into your cabin. There are public restrooms throughout camp, but these are the only non sleeping area restrooms with showers, one of them has a bath, and many of them are designed specifically for handicap accessibility.
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.
Twin Rocks Friends Camp and Conference Center is built for you!
We strive to make sure that Twin Rocks is a place where everyone is able to come, learn, grow, build memories and strengthen relationships. We hope that Twin Rocks is the change you need from your everyday life. If you need peace we have set up peaceful places. If you need to get into nature we have forests, meadows, lake, creek, and beach. If you need relationship we have set up spaces for meetings big and small. We hope that you and your family, church, school, friends, mission, support group, and/or hobby group find the space to get what your spirit needs here on our grounds.
THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOUR STAY
Most of our sleeping accommodations (Pacific Woods lodge is the exception) come with a mattress and fitted sheet by default so we expect our guests to bring their own pillow and sleeping bag as desired.
The beach is beautiful and wonderful and we hope you enjoy it, but we simply can’t overstate how dangerous it is. Our beach has terrible undertows, riptides, sneaker waves and no lifeguards. It is rare that a year goes by without at least one death on the Twin Rocks beach.
