Please note that this year's Mini Camp starts on Tuesday and ends on Friday.


A child’s introduction to solo overnight camping at Camp Magruder. Young campers ease themselves into camp life by staying just three nights, getting a good taste of camp life under the guidance of their first counselors.

Our trained counselors accompany Mini campers through Camp Magruder favorites like swimming, boating, and campfires with an earlier bedtime to keep them full of energy the next day. Young campers will have a blast playing and learning the early lessons of camp friendships with energetic mentors helping them fall in love with camp life.


Check in at Camp Magruder will be a scheduled drive-through drop-off, 3-4pm on Tuesday.   If you miss your time and are unable to arrive by 5pm, please contact the Camp Magruder office at 503-355-2310.   Camp will conclude on Friday, and pick-up will be a scheduled drive-through from 10-11 am. You will choose your drop-off and pick-up times during registration.  More information will be sent regarding drop-off and pick-up as well as current pandemic requirements as we get closer to the start of camp.


GETTING READY FOR CAMP:  Our website has the information about what to bring, directions to camp, camp policies and health forms on one page:  READY, SET, GO to CAMP!  

Please note that campers are not allowed to have cell phones or devices (like Apple Watches) to use to message or call home while they are at camp. You can connect with your camper by sending mail, and know that camp staff will be in touch with you with any information you need to know about your camper's experience if there is an accident or emergency.

If registering by mail, please send a completed health form to the camping office at least 10 days before the camp begins.  

If you have special dietary needs, please contact the camp at least two weeks in advance. (Contact information below.)

For registration information, please contact our camp registrar at registrar@gocamping.org.  A non-refundable $50 deposit is required to hold your spot.  This deposit will not be refunded but may be transferred to another session should you need to cancel.  All balances should be paid at least two weeks before camp unless prior arrangements have been made.
