Mothers and Daughters Weekend

Friday, May 8 – Sunday, May 10, 2020

Mother and Daughter Weekend had to be cancelled due to the Coronavirus.

In light of COVID-19 and the extended “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” mandate, Tilikum has elected to cancel Mother & Daughter Weekend this year. We regret the loss of a valuable weekend of rest and ministry, but believe it necessary to prioritize the health and safety of guests and staff by continuing to minimize group gatherings.

In place of the $40 cancellation fee we will only be requiring only $10 to cover the bank’s payment processing fee. Your remaining registration will be fully reimbursed. Like many other small non-profits, we are working to strategize financially for the coming months in order to keep ministry programs running despite the impact of COVID-19. If you wish to transfer your registration fee to a program later in the season, or contribute any or all of your registration as a donation to cover income loss due to COVID-19, email Suzanne Maki/Camp Registrar. Your contribution, whether financial or in prayer, is deeply appreciated.

We are so grateful for you and the part you play as a member of this community! Blessings to you and your loved ones, and we hope to see you at camp again soon.

Tilikum offers programs that emphasize times of spiritual and relational renewal, exploring creation, building community, encountering God and transforming lives. Whether fishing on the lake, exploring the grounds during a nature hike, or racing up the Climbing Wall together, the setting, the people, and the presence of God create an ideal opportunity to experience life side by side. Mothers and daughters (entering 1st grade and up) are invited to retreat together in a relaxing, country setting. Highlights include three fun-filled days of laughter, fun activities and great Bible teaching, all in a spectacular setting surrounded by God’s beautiful creation. Best of all, the memories made during this very special weekend will last forever! The weekend price includes lodging for two nights, five meals and all program activities.

New for summer 2020 is an option to commute to Tilikum for all Family Weekends except for Single Mom and Family Weekend. Join in the fun with your family and return home to sleep in your own bed at night. Rates include 5 meals, all sessions and recreation activities for the weekend.

Medical diets

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.

Mother and Daughter 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, Tilikum is able to offer financial assistance to families that need it. Please select the appropriate tier at the time of registration.
