Tilikum QUEST Camps

(A day camp program for youth entering 6th – 8th grades.)

Tilikum QUEST Camps are specifically geared to the needs of middle school students. High energy yet thoughtful group building activities are led by specially trained college aged staff and develop social skills, friendships, and character qualities in an atmosphere of fun. In the supportive environment of their small group, campers can choose to face personal obstacles on our High Challenge Course, swim and canoe in Lake Tilikum and learn about God’s deep love for them. After a day of fresh forest air & hard play, your middle-schooler will return to the comforts of home to sleep in their own bed & be ready for the next adventure filled day.
