Northwest Camp

It’s hard to imagine a more perfect or beautiful place for a summer camp than Camp Magruder on the scenic Oregon Coast! Campers enjoy a clean, nearly private mile-long lake as the eastern border of camp, and over a half-mile of pristine beach on the west. The dorms, dining hall and other camp facilities are among the best in the region and improvements are made every year. The sandy beach is a great location for memorable campfires as the sun sets over the ocean.

Campers and staff enjoy a variety of activities offered. Everyone enjoys the beach activities: volleyball, speedaway (one boundary of the field is the ocean), skim-boarding and riding boogie boards in the waves.

Other activities include swimming, waterskiing, kayaking on Smith Lake, archery, dance class and softball. We will also have two dances during camp. The dance instruction classes have been a huge success over the years. Most of the campers know the line and group dances plus the traditional swings and waltzes.

Christian living lessons and memory verses are the core of each day. Each activity, lesson and campfire story is designed to help campers understand the principles and how to apply them when they return home.  This year, the focus of our theme is to teach about the importance of the race teens are running and the prize of the crown God wants to provide them.

Every year campers build friendships that will last a lifetime. Living in a world where evil and negative influences are everywhere, friendships with teens of like mind are vitally important. Our goal is to establish a godly atmosphere in which campers can be enriched for a lifetime.
