Single Mom Families Weekend

June 28 – 30, 2024

Tilikum’s Single Mom & Family Weekend emphasizes times of spiritual and relational renewal, exploring creation, building community, encountering God and transforming lives. Whether 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.

I grew up in Oregon and have dedicated much of my life to worship ministry from the age of 8. I am currently part of a Salem-based worship band called Cherry City Worship as well as serving at my home church. I find such joy in serving and being able to use the gifts God has given me to bless others and worship Him. I work at a faith-based non-profit in Canby as a bookkeeper and am also serving as Moderator for the Council of Hispanic Anabaptists, Churches of the Northwest in my Conference. I’m thankful for any opportunity to serve and look forward to seeing the Lord move!

Food service

Expect delicious home-style meals when you visit Tilikum.​

Medical diets

Food Service can accommodate your medical diet request if you let them know at least two weeks in advance of your scheduled event at Tilikum. A link to the medical diet form will be sent to you once you complete your online registration. 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.

Cost for Family Weekends

Realizing that families have different abilities to pay, Tilikum has instituted a three-tier fee program. Tiered pricing is intended to help families recognize the full cost of Camp 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.

Scholarships are available for those who qualify.  [LEARN MORE]
