This past week on a family kayaking trip to Netarts Bay we ran across a dead Giant Pacific Octopus. I have been looking for a way to get the beak of an octopus to share with Outdoor School Students. It was an opportunity too good to pass up so I brought the specimen back to the Camp for a dissection. I'm excited to share this beak with Twin Rocks visitors! ~ Beacon (Joel)
Yesterday I made a few improvements at the Campfire Bowl. The loop at the back of the campfire bowl to house OWARIIs (Oh What A Relief It Is) is now flattened, rocked and ready for this fall. A path also now connects around the south side of the amphitheater to the front edge ("back stage") to allow for faster access and an out of the way space for adults to prepare skits away from students.

Last year the Tillamook County Outdoor School (TCODS) partnered with Twin Rocks. This connection has brought many new memory making traditions to the Camp. Among these traditions is a formal dinner under black lights. It is a blessing to be able to share parts of the Tillamook program with other groups. Thank you TCODS volunteers and supporters for making it possible to share these memory making opportunities with Tillamook students and campers from across the Pacific Northwest!
FYI - For those of you interested in applying to help with Tillamook Outdoor School this year... Staff Dates at Camp: September 20-25, 2015. The application process for adult staff is now available HERE. For prospective High School Counselors the application process will be posted and directed through the high school in the first days of school next fall.
After major storm damage rendered the rail line through the Salmonberry Corridor unusable communities are gathering together to turn it into a walking and biking path. This path will eventually connect the Willamette Valley with the Oregon Coast for non-motorized travel.
