Single Mom and Family Weekend

Friday, July 5 – Sunday, July 7, 2019

Tilikum’s Single Mom & Family Weekend emphasizes times of spiritual and relational renewal, exploring creation, building community, encountering God and transforming lives. Whether fishing with your son or daughter 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. Single moms and their kids (entering 1st grade and up) are invited to spend a relaxing weekend at Tilikum, just enjoying each other! Take time to be encouraged by biblical teaching and wonderful worship times, playing in the woods, canoeing on the lake, or just enjoying some down time. There will be times together as well as times for moms to be alone while the kids are with Tilikum counselors. A truly refreshing weekend and a great memory-making opportunity for your family! Weekend price includes lodging for two nights, five meals and all program activities.

Special diets

We can accommodate options for those with medical dietary needs when given prior notification. Tilikum charges an additional $1 per meal per person for “medical diet” requests. Tilikum prepares family-style meals rather than ‘individual short orders’ based on “food preferences”. We will make you an individual meal with the specifications listed below to the best of our abilities.  We are not a dedicated facility and will process all types of foods in the same kitchen. Please click the following link for the Tilikum Medical Diet Form. This form should be completed by the individual themselves and needs to be returned by email two-weeks prior to your Family Weekend to Debbie Ford/Camp Registrar.
