Building Leaders Out of Camp Korey

Camp Korey understands the valuable experience that our B.L.O.C.K. Program offers to teen campers! This program will focus on leadership, skill-based learning projects, and specific B.L.O.C.K.  programming (give-back projects, job shadowing, and more) for campers ages 16 & 17 years old.

The BLOCK Program will run during 3 sessions this summer. The dates range between July 17 – August 4. Once we receive their application, our Admissions Team will work quickly to determine eligibility and schedule interviews. If accepted, BLOCK leaders will be assigned one summer camp session to attend. Please keep in mind- BLOCK leaders will NOT be attending their own session (serving their primary diagnosis). Our BLOCK leaders are invited to come to camp by themselves, not in a family pod. For questions about our COVID practices and policies, or how else we plan on keeping your child safe at camp, please email admissionsteam@campkorey.org.
