26-DSC05823 Tilikum Day Camp

(for campers entering grades 1-6)

Since the summer of 1972, Tilikum Day Camp has been providing Portland area kids with their first extended experience in God’s beautiful out-of-doors. Each week, small groups (10-12) of similarly aged kiddos explore our 93 acre camp under the careful guidance of our specially trained college age staff. Together, they encounter life-skill building (making friends, swimming, nature studies), Christ-centered truths, and a whole lot of fun!

“I love this camp and what an incredible way to blend nature, God, fun and the most amazing experience ever!! It is Ian’s 3rd year and he loves it!! Thank you all.”  -Day Camp Parent
