Mother and Son Weekend
Mothers and sons (entering 1st grade and up) come out for a fun-filled day at Tilikum. Highlights include, worship, team-building activities, fishing, and a lot more! Best of all, sons will have a whole day of undivided attention from mom, building memories that will last a lifetime. Tilikum emphasizes times of spiritual and relational renewal, exploring creation, building community, encountering God and transforming lives. Whether fishing with your son 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.
