Tilikum Trail Run & Family Fun Day

Thursday, July 4th 2019

A fundraiser to support families from our communities with camp scholarship assistance. Every child deserves the chance to experience summer camp!

“Last year we couldn’t afford summer camp for my son. My husband was in treatment for stage 3 esophagus cancer and had not worked in 5 months. Thankfully, we were offered a scholarship and my son was able to attend camp during a difficult season for our family. My husband’s latest scan was clear! Thank you for ministering to my family, it means so much to us. This year, along with registering my son for camp, I would like to donate to the scholarship fund to help another child have the opportunity to attend camp. Thank you!”

– Camper Parent 2018 & 2019
