Mother and Son Adventure Day
Sunday, August 24, 2014
Tilikum’s Illahee Retreat Center offers retreat programs that emphasize 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.
Mothers and sons (ages 5+) 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.
