Extended Care

Q. What is Extended Care?
A. Tilikum offers extended hours care for Day Camp and QUEST campers only. Early drop off begins at 7:30AM, and late pickup ends at 5:00PM. Pre-registered rates are $15 per day for Before Care, and $15 per day for After Care. The drop-in rate is $30 per session. Parents/guardians whose campers are picked up later than 5:00PM will be charged an additional $1 per minute. Parents/guardians will be billed for extended care the week after Camp.

Parents/guardians can reserve extended hours care when filling out the camper’s Medical History Form online at least one week before camp. After this time window has passed, any changes to extended care reservations must be made by emailing Suzanne Maki/Camp Registrar, or call Suzanne at (503) 538-2763, ext 101.
