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

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.

A $1,100 maximum cost for your immediate family! The Family Camp option runs Sunday afternoon through Friday afternoon. Check back February 15 for more details and registration.

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 be a Volunteer Counselor 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 by the lake shore. This will allow for rest and family time to get ready for the next day.

Family Camp schedule

Family Camp happens just one week this summer.

     Summer Camp Week 5 – July 9-14, 2023


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.

Did you know your child can come to Summer Camp more than one week?

Activities and curriculum won’t change significantly from week to week, but if your child loves Tilikum they could come to Camp up to three times this summer.
