Mother & Daughter Retreat

Friday, May 8 – Sunday, May 10, 2015DSC00318

Tilikum’s Retreat Center offers programs that emphasize times of spiritual and relational renewal, exploring creation, building community, encountering God and transforming lives. Whether fishing 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.

Mothers and daughters (1st grade and up) are invited to retreat together in a relaxing, country setting. Highlights include three fun-filled days of laughter, fun activities and great Bible teaching, all in a spectacular setting surrounded by God’s beautiful creation. Best of all, the memories made during this very special weekend will last forever!

Retreat price includes lodging for two nights, five meals and all program activities.


Single Room with three single beds and private bathroom accommodations in a comfortable country, retreat center setting.

Speaker: Elizabeth Sherwood lives with her family in Newberg Oregon. She is the Administrative Pastor at Newberg Friends Church. Her husband teaches at George Fox and her teenage daughters love cross-country, being creative and playing with their puppy. One of Elizabeth’s favorite things to do is go on a run with her family at Champoeg.

Worship Leader: Carrie Friedrich, Assistant Director at the Newell Pioneer Village at Champoeg State Park, Newberg, OR.  She’s a substitute teacher and serves at  West Chehalem Friends Church. Her life verse is, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13

Lodging: you’ll stay in our Retreat Center where you and your child(ren) will have your own guest sleeping room with private bathroom.  Please bring your own bedding, towels and toiletries.

Things to Bring: swim suit, closed-toe shoes, sandals, Bible, notepad, casual clothes, jacket, camera (charger), flashlight, and mosquito spray.

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.
