Camp Namanu is a summer camp in the U.S. state of Oregon. It was founded as a Camp Fire Girls camp on the banks of the Sandy River in 1924.
Namanu remained a "girls only" camp until the late 1970s when the parent organization, now Camp Fire, made the executive decision to include boys in all areas of the program.
Today, Namanu covers more than 552 acres (2.23 km2), and is located near the Bull Run Watershed in Sandy, Oregon.
Camp Namanu Wikipedia
During World War II, while Namanu was a girls-only camp, and while local women often worked in shipbuilding, many T2 tankers were made in nearby Portland. One T2 tanker was named the SS Camp Namanu.
The Portland Metro Council also operated Camp Kwoneesum northeast of Washougal, Washington. Purchased in 1959, the camp operated from 1965 to 1986. The camp's 1,800 acres (7.3 km2) were sold to Longview Fibre Company in 1987. The camp featured an artificial lake with canoeing and sailing, and more primitive camping than Namanu.
The site was used by the Multnomah Education Service District for part of their Outdoor School program.
