Family Days at Camp Tilikum

Family Days at Tilikum are a great opportunity for parents and their children to take a break from regular schedules and experience life side by side. Activities include meals together, speaker and worship sessions, waterfront activities (canoeing, swimming and fishing), nature hikes, Challenge Course activities, and crafts.

Tilikum offers Family Days instead of Family Weekends this year to provide families an ideal opportunity to continue to experience relational and spiritual renewal while complying with State and Federal guidelines due to COVID-19.There will be no Zoom meetings this year, only a full Camp-like day in Tilikum’s pastoral setting with group and individual activities and the presence of God. Cost of Family Day has been dramatically reduced for this abbreviated program to allow most families to participate. We expect a return to regular Family Weekend programs in 2022. Children attending these camps should at least be entering 1st grade.

Family Days cost

Realizing that families have different abilities to pay, Tilikum has instituted a three-tier fee program. Tiered pricing is intended to help families recognize the full cost of Family Days and then select the level suitable for their circumstances. By choosing to pay the full cost of the program, Tilikum is able to offer financial assistance to families that need it. Please select an appropriate tier at the time of registration.

Full Cost

     Adult: $114
     Child: $90


     Adult: $105
     Child: $83


     Adult: $95
     Child: $75

Registration for Family Days began March 1 and ends the Monday before each Family Day begins.

Costs for Single Mom and Family Day per registrant are at least $20 lower for adults and $15 lower per child at checkout.

Scholarships are available for those who qualify.
