Father and Son Families Day

Saturday, June 19, 2021

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.
