What is Camp More 2023 going to look like?
After several years of just having day camps due to COVID-19, we are back at our original home of Camp Magruder in Rockaway Beach, OR. Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, Smith Lake, Forests, and Tide Pools, Camp More has the best that the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
With comfortable lodging, running restrooms complete with showers, and ample indoor and outdoor space, our campers stay busy, but they also stay well-rested and feeling good.

A Variety of Activities
At Camp More, campers have access to a wide array of activities. While our focus remains on increasing confidence, friendships, and communication, we do so while offering rich and exciting summer camp programming. There will be small group times, whole group activities, and free times when campers can alternate between activities. Drama and improvisation, arts and crafts, swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, sports, cooking, beach play, a ride on a historic steam engine, yoga, archery, and more are all planned for camp 2023!
Seriously good food.
We never go hungry at Camp More thanks to the fabulous meal services provided by Camp Magruder. The chefs at camp are not serving up your typical camp food. Their food is nutritious, delicious, plentiful, and something your camper will think up year round while they wait for camp to return the following year. Menus are set in advance, and alternative diets may be considered and provided for.
The Best Counselors!
We are so honored to have the most amazing Speech Language Pathology graduate student clinicians from our two partner universities, Portland State University and Pacific University, as our camp counselors. Not only are they knowledgeable about stuttering, they are passionate about working with kids and teens. Some of them even stutter!
Additionally, we have special guest counselors from the adult stuttering community join us every day. The campers love meeting adults who stutter, hearing their stories, and hanging out with older people "who get it!"
The Time of Their Lives
Campers will never have a moment at camp where they will be able to say they are bored. Between elected activities, discussion groups, and special programming, campers are constantly engaged in all things Camp More. They will leave camp feeling more confident, empowered and connected to a community. They will not be able to wait until camp the next summer!
