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!
Ellie Hartman is an exuberant PNW singer/songwriter whose style is a blend of Indie, Pop, and Folk. Some of her recent performances include the Singer Songwriter Night at the magnificent Walter’s Cultural Arts Center and on the stage of the Newberg Lavender Festival, as well as many other festivals, wineries, and places of joyful gathering. This year, she’s also had the pleasure of collaborating with her band The Oaks, which includes tenor saxophone, piano, and drums.
Whether performing with a band or solo, Ellie’s goal is always to give the people around her a boost of energy through upbeat tunes and thoughtful lyrics. As someone who always prioritizes kindness, she wants everyone to feel welcome and at home during her performances.

The commuter option
Commute to Tilikum for all Family Weekends except for the 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.
Expect delicious home-style meals when you visit Tilikum.
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]
Changes or cancellations
If you need to change or cancel or your camp registration for any reason, email Crystal Headrick/Camp Registrar, as soon as possible. If you cancel more than three weeks from your camp start date, you will receive a full refund minus a $40 transaction fee. A 50% refund will be given for cancellations made between 8 and 21 days prior to the first day of camp. Cancellations made 7 days or less prior to the first day of camp will not be refunded. Exceptions can be made for illness or accident with a note from the camper’s physician. Tilikum prorates the amount of refund based on the number of days the camper attended, minus a $40 transaction fee. There is a $40 transaction fee for switching from one week of camp to another.
