Twin Rocks is a terrific place for kids and youth. Located on the Oregon Coast in beautiful Rockaway Beach, Twin Rocks offers an ideal setting for summer camps, outdoor schools, and youth group retreats. Recreation opportunities abound. Cabins are comfortable. And the camp’s natural surroundings provide an ideal place to explore and enjoy the out-of-doors.
Each year Twin Rocks hosts numerous camps for kids and youth: outdoor schools for public and private institutions, weeklong summer camps, weekend church youth group retreats, denominational gatherings, and others.
To inquire about booking camp or retreat space for your group, please email or phone (503-355-2284) Guest Services Director Timber Mabes.
Large groups (25-350 people) utilize Twin Rocks’ 120-acre main camp/conference center,
which abounds with kid-friendly activities. An athletic field, miniature golf, swimming/boating on Spring Lake, disc golf, beach volleyball, an arts/crafts building, and a gymnasium/game room offer an abundance of opportunities for fun. Explore the abundance of God’s creation amid an 80-acre forest, a Wetlands Walk, a freshwater stream, tide pools in Tillamook Bay (3 miles south of camp), and the Pacific Ocean (one block west of camp). Most sleeping rooms accommodate groups of 8, enabling excellent camper-counselor interaction. “Best camp food I’ve ever tasted” is a common refrain.
Small groups (10-40 people) choose Harbor Villa Retreat Center, located a mile north of the main conference center. This amazing oceanfront facility offers wonderful views of the offshore “Twin Rocks” – from whence the camp derives its name. Harbor Villa’s backyard is equipped with horseshoes, tetherball, barbecues, and a bonfire pit. Play at the beach, roast marshmallows over the fire, enjoy late-night puzzles and table games, and take in local attractions like tide pools, crabbing, deep sea fishing, and the Tillamook Cheese Visitor’s Center. Each of the Retreat Center’s three large beach homes (Lighthouse, Anchorage, and Harbor House) come equipped with full kitchens for do-your-own cooking. Youth groups often stay in the 20-bed Harbor House, which offers an economical, youth-friendly setting.
