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”
2020 Fall Family Weekends
We remain steadfast in our commitment to serve children with serious illnesses and their families. Therefore, due to the ongoing risks posed by COVID-19, Camp Korey’s upcoming fall family weekends will be going virtual. While we understand it is disappointing to not gather around the campfire in person this fall, we are ready to offer new and exciting programming for your family online! All of our virtual camp experiences are free, all-inclusive, are developed with intentionality and are outcomes based.
Our Virtual family weekends will also be formatted to resemble a typical weekend at camp! We’ll facilitate a lot of the traditional camp activities, such as Campfire, Stage Morning, Parent coffee hours, Arts & Crafts, and more. Plus, we’ll offer new and exciting activities that will keep campers and family members engaged and having fun. Each family will get their own Camp box full of supplies to participate in all of the activities hosted on Zoom from Friday evenings through Sunday morning.
Our Fall Sessions are:
Sept 25-27: Autism Family Weekend
Oct 2-4: General Family Weekend
Oct 16-18: RPM | DSD | GI Family Weekend
Nov 13-15: Skeletal Dysplasia Family Weekend
We will be continually monitoring state and local orders regarding COVID-19. If conditions allow, we plan to offer optional in-person programming on the Saturday of each family weekend for those who wish to attend, with the rest of the weekend being online. This will require a commitment to follow safety and social distancing procedures, including wearing a mask. We will make the determination no later than two weeks in advance of each weekend whether we can safely allow families who are interested to come in-person during the day.
Thank you for your continued confidence, support and belief in the magic of Camp Korey, and we hope to see your family at an upcoming weekend!
