As the year comes to a close we frantically work to complete year-end reports, but we pause this week to give thanks to the roughly 8,900 people who have called Camp Magruder "home" in 2013. We've had the opportunity to serve several types of groups this year including: pastoral retreats, service project groups, girl/boy scout troops, high school/college choirs, church councils, church family camps, confirmation/baptismal retreats, women's/men's church retreats, high school/college student leadership groups, peer mentors, college Residence Life programs, international student life retreats, alternative high school retreats, class trips, outdoor school programs, Kiwanis officer training, labyrinth retreats, family reunions, Our House day trips, Oregon Mycological Society forays, Columbia Basin Basketry Guild workshops, needlework/quilters events, Camp Odakoda, United Church of God Youth Camp, Washington State School for the Blind, AA events, program camps sponsored by Oregon-Idaho Annual Conference, and we even had time to host a wedding. We welcome these groups to the Camp Magruder family and say that it has been our joy and honor to work with each group getting to know these programs through serving and being in community with them this year.

We would also like to thank those who have volunteered their time serving as camp staff (deans, counselors, theologians, resource people, tech. support/consultation, etc.) or as part of a service project team. We wouldn't have been nearly as successful this year without your help.

Lastly, we thank all of those who have contributed financial support to Camp Magruder over the past year. We've been able to accomplish great things because of your generous gifts that help ensure that Camp Magruder is ready to take on the next generation of campers.

If you'd like more information on volunteering or contributing financially to Camp Magruder please contact Amy Wood, Program Services Director, at or 503-355-2310.
