This nonresidential christian youth camp program follows the same hours as the Tilikum Day Camp (8:45-3:45) yet includes some of the exciting challenges of the HAC residential program. QUEST is a transitional youth camp, meant to graduate Day Campers into the more challenging activities of High Adventure Camp. Campers will participate in:
- A 29-element challenge course
- Games and fun group songs
- Both High and Low elements on our Challenge Course (you will need to wait until High Adventure to ride our new Giant Zipline)
- Spiritual & life lessons are drawn from the course experience & personal & group accomplishments
- All within a framework of safety, fun, and trust
- Swimming and boating each afternoon
QUEST Family Night
- Each Thursday night from 6:30 - 8:30
- Families of current QUEST campers are invited to spend an evening at Tilikum.
- An opportunity to participate in some of the activities with your campers and enjoy a short program of singing, sharing and fun.
Our intent at Tilikum is to provide a safe, Christ-centered camping environment. Though these situations are rare, the camp does reserve the right to call the camper’s parent and ask for the camper to be taken home if it is deemed that his or her behavior or actions pose a threat to the camper’s safety or the camp. The staff will do their best to inform the campers of the expectations we have for them at the beginning of camp.

We had so much fun this week as we played and learned some important Biblical lessons together. It is our desire that theses valuable lessons are not merely something the campers hear at camp and then forget about as they return home, but rather that they are able to be reminded of these important truths as they continue to grow in their faith. To encourage continued discussion with your camper, we wanted to fill you in on some of the lessons that we have been learning though our skit, trail talk, group discussion and activities. You are a vital part of your camper's growth and learning!
The camper’s spiritual and personal growth is the focal point of the ministry.
