Tilikum Medical Diet Form:  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 or fax to (503) 538-7536.  Payment is collected for this at check-in.
