We are suspending all 2020 Spring Family Weekend and Onsite Residential Summer Camp programs to protect our campers, families, staff and volunteers. This decision was not made lightly. We explored every option, but concluded that the risk of a Coronavirus outbreak and its impact on our community was too great. Given what we know today, it is in the best interest of our campers, their families, staff, and volunteers that we do not bring people to camp this summer. Please read the full announcement here.
However, we are working hard to create alternatives that will allow us to share camp activities with you digitally! Please join us for “Campfire Fridays” on our social media and website. Campers will receive newsletters, videos, and traditional camp activities all in the comfort of their own home, and each week’s edition will be shared across our channels so everyone can participate.
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.
