Tilikum

Tilikum Center for Retreats and Outdoor Ministries

Tilikum is a Christian Summer Camp and Retreat Center nestled among the hazelnut orchards and rolling hills of Newberg, Oregon. Founded in 1971, Tilikum is an ideal location for group retreats, day-use planning sessions, and school or church outings.

Each summer more than 2,500 children, youth and adults attend a Tilikum sponsored summer camp or family retreat and over the year more than 5,000 people attend other retreats and events.

The pastoral setting includes 93 acres of woods, pristine lake, miles of hiking trails, extensive team-building challenge course and a restored 1909 one-room school house. The Retreat Center is a lodge for up to 58 people where home-style meals are prepared with a personal touch. We are located only 45 minutes southwest of Portland and an hour northwest of Salem, Oregon.
