Accreditation

Organizations can often be unwilling to submit to standards or allow outside input for improvement. To the contrary, Tilikum actively seeks advice and “best practices” from multiple sources.

Christian Camp and Conference Association

At a Christian camp, young people have the mental room to consider some of the most important issues of life. This break from the craziness of their regular routine allows campers to think about their future, to evaluate unhealthy patterns, and to discover the truth that God loves them and has an amazing plan for their lives. Camp Tilikum has been a member of the Christian Camp and Conference Association since 1972.  [LEARN MORE]

American Camp Association

ACA Accreditation means that Tilikum cares enough to undergo a extensive (215 standards) review of its operation, from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. The American Camp Association collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at Tilikum reflect the most up-to-date standards in camp operation. Tilikum has been accredited by the American Camp Association since 1977.  [LEARN MORE]
