To see EVEN More, visit!

A little slice of heaven between the Pacific Ocean and Smith Lake in Rockaway Beach, Oregon.  Leave the cares of the world behind and rediscover the joy of living in Christian community.   Whether you are a summer camper or attending with your church, school, non-profit, or community organization, come and leave your footprints in the sand and take home memories to last a lifetime!  More than 9,000 people visit Camp Magruder every year.  We hope that you'll be among them!
