Family Weekends

Residential Summer Camp BLOCK Program Family Day Adventures

Throughout the spring and fall, Camp Korey invites families who are living with the challenges of a medical condition to experience a weekend at camp.

Family Weekends serve children ages 0-17, unless otherwise noted, with a serious medical illness, and their immediate family members. Campers come with their caregivers and siblings, sleeping overnight from Friday to Sunday at camp together.

Sample activities for kids and parents include: campfires, carnival, arts and crafts, archery, and stage night. Special parent activities are also offered throughout the weekend. In addition to fun activities, family camp offers the chance to form friendships with families facing similar challenges. 

“It was an incredible time to connect with other families- we all can relate and that was so invaluable! – 2019 Family Weekend Camper Parent”
