Mother & Son Weekend

Friday, July 20 – Sunday, July 22, 2018

Mothers and sons (entering 1st grade and up) come out for a fun-filled day at Tilikum. Highlights include, worship, team-building activities, fishing, and a lot more! Best of all, sons will have a whole day of undivided attention from mom, building memories that will last a lifetime.

Tilikum emphasizes times of spiritual and relational renewal, exploring creation, building community, encountering God and transforming lives. Whether fishing with your son on the lake, exploring the grounds during a nature hike, or racing up the climbing wall together, the setting, the people, and the presence of God create an ideal opportunity to experience life side by side.

Special Diets:  We are able to accommodate most medical dietary needs when given prior notification. Tilikum charges an additional $1 per meal per person for “Medical Diet” requests due to additional preparation and higher cost of food. Tilikum prepares family-style meals rather than ‘individual short orders’ based on ‘food preferences’. We will make you an individual meal with the specifications listed below to the best of our abilities.  We are not a dedicated facility and will process all types of foods in the same kitchen. Please return this Tilikum Medical Diet Form upon registering for this event to our camp registrar ( or fax to 866-536-2852).  Payment is collected at check-in.
