Tilikum Trail Run & Family Fun Day

Currently scheduled Saturday, July 4th 2020. Registration will open Spring 2020. 

Thank you to our 2019 sponsors, donors and Trail Run participants for raising $7,000 to support the camp scholarship fund! You help make it possible for every child to have the opportunity to experience the joy of 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
