Single Mom Families Weekend

Early in July

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.
