Camper Group

What we’re all about.

Every child deserves the opportunity to “just be a kid,” and here at Camp Korey, we’re committed to making that a reality. That’s why our Family Weekends, Summer Camp sessions, Family Adventures, and retreats are 100% adaptable and 100% free of charge for campers and families.

Each year, Camp Korey brings joy, community, and new adventures to nearly 2,000 campers living with life-altering medical conditions and their parents, siblings, and caregivers. As a proud member of the SeriousFun Children’s Network, Camp Korey is more than a camp, it’s a place where challenges transform into triumphs, and where the spirit of community and adventure thrives. Our programs not only bring smiles to the faces of our campers but also create a supportive network for families who are navigating life’s journey with resilience and hope.

Our dedicated medical care team ensures that Camp Korey’s medical center and pharmacy are staffed 24 hours a day by pediatric, specialty-specific physicians, registered nurses, and medical volunteers while camp is in session.

We provide comprehensive, individualized medical care for each of our campers. Our medical team collaborates with each family to make certain that all elements of their child’s care are planned for. We ensure that campers receive their medications discreetly. This way, they can focus on having fun and enjoy a sense of medical independence. Parents and caregivers can rest assured that their children are safe and will receive any necessary medical care while at camp.

Camp Korey’s is uniquely qualified to serve kids with one or more of 90+ serious medical diagnoses throughout the Pacific Northwest.


Our purpose is to create empowering, adaptive year-round programs for children dealing with life-altering medical conditions and their families, completely free of charge. The foundational pillars of Camp Korey are safety, friendship, inclusion, equity, and fun.


To honor the courage, strength, and determination of children living with life-altering medical conditions and their families by providing them with a transformational experience in a fun, safe camp environment with specialized medical support.

Giving joy, adventure, and resilience to every child that needs it.

Our core values.

We believe a camp community made with a wide range of perspectives and backgrounds benefits everyone personally and professionally.
We accept people as they come to us, embracing their gender identity, abilities and disabilities, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, spoken language, socioeconomic status, and the color of their skin.
We listen, learn, and unlearn to create an environment grounded in empathy and compassion.
We celebrate the differences that define us with respect to the communities and paths which shaped them, creating a culture of understanding and belonging.
We understand this work is a continuous process and are committed to JEDI (justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion) practices and follow a SOAR (safety, outreach, access, and respect) model to better serve our entire camp community.


Camp Korey’s land acknowledgment.


We would like to acknowledge that the land we live and work on is the ancestral homeland of the Coast Salish peoples.
To acknowledge this land is to learn and recognize the lived history of Indigenous peoples, including the impact of colonialism and subsequent displacement, genocide, and erasure of Native communities and culture throughout our country’s history. Acknowledging Native land rights is a key connection to helping communities improve their health, lives, and continued culture.
We express our deepest respect and gratitude to our Indigenous neighbors for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
