Consider the Family Camp Option for Summer Day Camp and QUEST.

A $1,000 maximum cost for your immediate family! The Family Camp option applies to just one week this year, July 10-15, 2022, and runs Sunday afternoon through Friday afternoon.

Tilikum offers this overnight option for families in the Day Camp or QUEST Adventure Camp programs. Perfect for out-of-the-area families who wish to spend time with their campers.

How it works

Family Camp begins on Sunday afternoon and concludes Friday afternoon.

Days: Children entering grades 1-8 will attend Day Camp or QUEST Camp from 8:45AM – 3:45PM Monday-Friday. Parents are invited to hang out at Tilikum Lodge, go shopping, or take some quiet time for themselves.

Evenings: Evenings will be very lightly scheduled. For example, your family might enjoy a quiet canoe ride on the lake or an evening campfire on the Lakeside Patio. This will allow for rest and family time to get ready for the next day.

Family Camp schedule

Family Camp happens two weeks in the summer

Check back January 15 for details for the 2023 season!


Lodging: Families will be housed and served meals in The Lodge. Each family will have their own room(s) and bathroom.

Food: Breakfast and dinners will be served family-style in Tilikum’s Dining Room. Sack lunches will be distributed each morning for parents and campers.

Medical diets: Tilikum Food Service can accommodate your medical diet request if you let them know two weeks in advance of your scheduled event at Tilikum. There is an additional charge of $1 per meal per person due to the increased cost of food. You can make arrangements to pay when you arrive and check in.
