Family Weekends for the 2020 Summer Season
While Tilikum is monitoring and following Federal, State and local guidelines for COVID-19, the Camp is still anticipating a robust outdoor Summer Camp Season even though it has required program changes and changes to how we operate to keep guests and staff safe.

Fathers and sons (entering 1st grade and up) come out for a fantastic fishing weekend at Tilikum.

Lodging for 2020
Due to COVID-19, Father and Son Weekend will have family members lodge at home.
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.

Father and Son Weekend cost

Tiered pricing is intended to help families recognize the full cost of the weekends and then select the level that is most suitable for their family 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 the appropriate tier at the time of registration.
Scholarships are available for those who qualify. [LEARN MORE]
