About Us

Oregon Coast, 14 miles north of Tillamook, Oregon on Hwy 101

This facility is set between a fresh water lake on its east side offering environmental exploration and aquatic recreation and the relaxing beauty of a sandy Oregon beach to the west.

Camp Magruder is a special place for children, youth, and adults. It has preserved the wetlands and sand dunes around the facility so that everyone may study, learn, and enjoy the natural habitat. Primary activities include a big swing, boating, swimming, volleyball, basketball, and low elements ropes course. There are many inside and outside environments for worship, personal meditation, and group discussion.

This 146-acre facility can accommodate a variety of programming needs. For groups of 15 to 250 people, Camp Magruder offers the perfect combination of experiential learning, community building, and recreation.
