What people are saying about Camp Tilikum.

Every year more than 7,500 people visit Tilikum to find rest and renewal among the 93 acres of rolling hills, dense forest and pristine lake.

  • We wanted to extend a big THANK YOU to you the Camp Tilikum team. We enjoyed the grounds and found tranquility and peace. We appreciated the rooms and found comfort and camaraderie with our roomies. We were grateful for the delicious food, diet accommodations, and friendly staff who served us. Many of us found the connection to others and to self that we needed to continue to go out and serve our families and communities. Thank you Camp Tilikum!
