Friday, July 7 – Sunday, July 9, 2017
Tilikum’s Single Mom & Families Weekend emphasizes times of spiritual and relational renewal, exploring creation, building community, encountering God and transforming lives. Whether fishing with your son or daughter 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.
Single moms and their kids (entering 1st grade and up) are invited to spend a relaxing weekend at Tilikum, just enjoying each other! Take time to be encouraged by biblical teaching and wonderful worship times, playing in the woods, canoeing on the lake, or just enjoying some down time. There will be times together as well as times for moms to be alone while the kids are with Tilikum counselors. A truly refreshing weekend and a great memory-making opportunity for your family!
Weekend price includes lodging for two nights, five meals and all program activities.

Special Diets: We are able to accommodate most medical dietary needs when given prior notification. Tilikum charges an additional $1 per meal 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 take great care to avoid cross-contaminating food groups, but are not a dedicated facility and will process all types of foods in the same kitchen. Guests are encouraged to bring supplemental snacks or foods, when faced with a restrictive diet. All guests assume personal responsibility for their dietary needs and communication of those needs. We encourage you to clarify with us at the time of service, if there are ingredients that are unsafe for you. Our staff will attempt to modify food preparation when we are able to do so. Please return this Tilikum Medical Diet Form upon registering for this event to our camp registrar (firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to (503) 538-7536). Payment is collected at check-in.
Things to Bring: Bible, pen/pencil, notepad, swimsuit, closed-toe shoes, sandals, casual clothes, jacket, camera (& chargers), flashlight, and mosquito spray.

Single Mom & Families Weekend Cost
Realizing that families have different abilities to pay, Tilikum has instituted a three-tier fee program beginning this year. Tiered pricing is intended to help families recognize the full cost of the weekends and then select the level that is most suitable for your family circumstances. By choosing to pay the full cost of the program,Tilikum is able to give more financial assistance to families that need it. Please select the appropriate tier at the time of registration.
