Camp Gray
Newport, Oregon

It's Your Chance to Experience Camp Gray!

Since opening Camp Gray in 2016, we've shared the wonders of the outdoors and science with thousands of elementary, middle, and high school students. These young scientists spent their days exploring nearby beaches and forests while learning about the amazing coastal ecosystems here in Oregon.

For a limited time, we are offering our cabins for rent to OMSI members and the general public. Nestled near the heart of Newport and within walking distance of South Beach State Park, Camp Gray is the launching point to your own Oregon Coast adventures!

COVID-19 Policies

OMSI is following strict cleaning protocols based on recommendations by the city of Newport, Lincoln County, Oregon Health Authority, and the Centers for Disease Control. Guests at Camp Gray can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and support a safe and healthy experience for all guests, now and into the future. 

- Wearing masks prevents droplets that you regularly expel while talking and breathing from reaching other people.

- Maintaining at least 6 feet of distance between your group and another OMSI family gives more space and time for those droplets to fall out of the air.

- Opening windows when you depart increases ventilation in the cabin and reduces the probability of the virus staying in the air, making it safer for cleaning crews to enter.

- Sweeping the cabin and emptying trash in the dumpster before departing allows cleaning crews to focus on the detailed work of sanitizing spaces.
