The Northwest Sufi Camp community welcomes all people, regardless of age, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, or socioeconomics. We strive to make this a safe and welcoming spot for all those in our community.

Cedar Ridge Retreat Center
…is 45 miles west of Portland, with indoor and outdoor classrooms and 30 acres of gently sloping meadows, wooded trails, a creek, a swimming pool, and a 350-foot Slip ’N Slide! Delicious meals are provided by the Cedar Ridge kitchen staff, with options for those with special dietary needs.

Health & Safety
Northwest Sufi Camp’s Board is dedicated to creating a safe and healthy camp for all
participants, and asks that all share in this responsibility. The staff at NWSC is not equipped to handle adults or children who need significant supervision or behavioral control.

Youth Programs
Youth are cherished and respected at NWSC. See Camp Info menu.

Fees ~ Register by July 10 to avoid $75 late registration fee. Minimum 50% deposit at registration; balance due by July 10. Before July 10, deposits are refundable, less $50 cancellation fee; no refunds after that date.

Part-Time Registration
