Personal prayer retreats at Camp Tilikum

A place to find refuge.

Tilikum provides space for Christian spiritual refuge and renewal, away from the busyness of everyday life. The serenity and natural beauty of Tilikum’s outdoor setting encourages you to hear God and experience creation as you take time to study, pray, meditate, reflect, and share. There is no fee to use these two facilities, but donations for care and upkeep are greatly appreciated.
