Welcome to Camp Tilikum!
Camp Tilikum is a place where people can go to experience creation, build community, find refuge, encounter God, and see lives transformed.
Urgent message regarding changes to Tilikum’s 2022 Summer Camp program.
Due to delays in the timeline to complete repairs on the lake as well as an exceptionally challenging Summer Staff hiring season, we have made the extremely difficult decision to cancel Tilikum’s Day Camp program this year. Instead, we will be running an expanded QUEST Day Camp program for students entering grades 5 – 8.
What this means.
If you have a camper going into 5th or 6th grade who is registered for Day Camp and would like to move up to Quest, you may do so at no extra cost. Email Debbie Ford/Camp Registrar to make this change to your registration or, if you are registered through a church group, contact your group coordinator.
If you have a camper going into 1st – 4th grade who is currently registered for Day Camp, or a 5th – 6th grader currently registered for Day Camp who does not want to move up to Quest Camp, you may receive a full refund. Email Debbie Ford/Camp Registrar and she will begin processing your refund over the next few weeks. We will work to get your registration fees back to you as quickly as possible and greatly appreciate your patience as we work through these requests one at a time.
If you would like to help Camp Tilikum, you have the option of converting some or all of your camp fees into a donation toward the cost of making repairs to Tilikum Lake so that future summers will see it full and teeming with happy campers. We currently estimate costs for the project to be around $75,000.

This is without a doubt the most difficult decision we have had to make in Camp Tilikum’s 50-year history. We are heartbroken to have to give this news to so many families who we know were relying on a week of fun and respite for their kids.
Tilikum staff are deeply grateful for your prayer and support.
