Building for Tomorrow

The capital campaign for Lakeside Village.

By offering overnight summer camps, weekend retreat groups, family camps and outdoor schools, Lakeside Village will create the opportunity for 2,000 more campers to experience Tilikum each year, expanding the mission and ministry of Tilikum, and dramatically increasing Tilikum’s outreach opportunities. Constructing eight new cabins and a multi-use pavilion will meet the current need for more sleeping, eating and meeting space, and ensure Tilikum is prepared to best serve the next generation of campers.

Lakeside Village fundraising update

Tilikum is well into this building campaign and we have only about $173,548 left (about 17%) of the total $1,020,000 project to raise. This is dependent on two large grants. Please pray we can complete the grant requests in time and that they will be approved. A solar array was recently added to the project to provide most of the electricity for the camp over the next 20 years. A donor has just given the funds necessary to build a second cabin.

Tilikum awarded Energy Trust of Oregon grant for solar array.

In January 2022, the Energy Trust of Oregon notified us Tilikum had been awarded a grant to build a 175,000 kWh solar array of approximately 400 solar panels. This $290,244 grant will allow Tilikum to begin construction on this project in 2022 and provide the majority of Tilikum’s annual energy needs for at least the next 20 years!

Won’t you consider participating in the ministry at Tilikum.

Pray, volunteer, send a kid to Camp, advocate for Tilikum at your Church, and help us raise the last funds necessary for the construction of Lakeside Village.
