  • Historical Note

    Twin Rocks Friends Conference is located in Rockaway Beach, Oregon, serving as a summer camp and conference site for both Friends (Quaker) constituency and other organizational events. Discussions for the Summer Conference program began in 1916 from joint concerns of the Oregon Yearly Meeting of Friends and the Christian Endeavor youth organization in an effort to provide vacations and spiritual development for youth. In 1918 the first session at the present site was so successful that a Committe of Arrangements was formed for future events. Today the site is managed by Twin Rocks Friends Conference Board.

Several years of the Twin Rocks Sandpiper newsletters are also included as well as plats of the grounds and some architectural drawings of various buildings.
