To honor the courage, strength and determination of children and their families living with life-altering medical conditions by providing them with a transformational experience in a fun, safe camp environment with specialized medical support.


Giving joy, adventure and resilience to every child that needs it.


Camp Korey a 501 c3, part of the SeriousFun Children’s Network, is an independently managed and financed year-round camp program for children living with complex medical conditions such as cancer, sickle cell disease, mitochondrial disease, skeletal dysplasia, burn survivors, solid organ transplant recipients, and other acute and chronic medical conditions. Camp is completely free of charge to all children who attend. In 2005, Camp Korey was founded by Tim Rose with the help of his friend, Paul Newman, as a tribute to his son Korey Rose who lost his battle with bone cancer at the age of 18. Since 2005, over 35,000 campers and families have joined us in saying “I am Camp Korey” through the support of volunteers, community partners, medical providers, and donors. Camp Korey connects people across the country and the globe as we create empowering, adaptive year-round programs for children and their families through safety, friendship, inclusion, equity, and fun.
