Building Leaders Out of Camp Korey

Camp Korey understands the valuable experience that our BLOCK program offers to teen campers! BLOCK focuses on leadership, skill-based learning projects, and specific BLOCK programming like give-back projects, job shadowing, and more for campers ages 16 & 17 years old.

In preparation for our summer BLOCK program, we are holding a Spring Teen Retreat February 10 -12th. The teen Retreat will be a weekend of camper-only programming focusing on service, leadership, and camper connections. Campers age 15 to 18 are encouraged to apply.
