Family Weekends at Camp Tilikum

Family Weekends at Tilikum are a great opportunity for parents and kids to take a break from regular schedules and experience life side by side. Expect a full Camp-like weekend in Tilikum’s pastoral setting with group and individual activities in the presence of God. Activities include meals together, speaker and worship sessions, waterfront activities (canoeing and swimming), nature hikes, Challenge Course activities, and crafts. Notice the commuter option for this year’s program. Children attending these camps should at least be entering 1st grade.
