The Family Camp Option for Summer Day Camps

The Family Camp option applies to two weeks this year! July 8-13, 2018 and July 15-20, 2018 (Sunday afternoon – Friday afternoon)

For the fourth year, Tilikum is offering an overnight option for families to add to the Day Camp or QUEST Camp programs. Perfect for out-of-the-area families who wish to spend time with their campers.

How it Works


Family Camp begins on Sunday afternoon and concludes Friday afternoon.

Days: Children entering grades 1-8 will attend Day Camp or QUEST Camp from 8:45AM-3:45PM Monday-Friday. Parents are invited to be a volunteer counselor or take some quiet time for themselves.

Evenings: Evenings will be very lightly scheduled. For example, your family might enjoy a quiet canoe ride on the lake or an evening campfire by the lakeshore. This will allow for rest and family time to get ready for the next day.


Lodging: Families will be housed and served meals in The Lodge. Each family will have their own room(s) and bathroom.

Food: Breakfast and dinners will be served family-style in our Dining Room. Sack lunches will be distributed each morning for parents and campers.

Special Diets: Tilikum is able to accommodate most medical dietary needs when given prior notification. Tilikum charges an additional $1 per meal for “Medical Diet” requests per person. Please fill out the Tilikum Medical Diet Form only after registering online and receiving your confirmation email from our Camp Registrar.
