You make joy, adventure and resilience possible for thousands of children and families living with serious and life-altering medical conditions. With your support, we provide innovative and universally accessible programs, outreach to healthcare facilities, and an unwavering dedication to providing joyful childhood adventures and needed respite to heal. Our year-round programs are always offered free of charge.
There are over 80,000 children in the Pacific Northwest who would benefit from the life-changing experiences offered at Camp Korey. Every year, Camp Korey serves approximately 1,600 children in the Pacific Northwest.
What You Achieve
You enrich lives – campers do things at Camp Korey they never thought possible. Campers gain self-confidence, learn teamwork, and understand themselves better through our challenge-by-choice model.
You turn patients into children – campers are used to undergoing treatments, doctor visits, physical restrictions, and constant scrutiny. At Camp Korey they are children first and foremost.
You support local families – for many families living with serious medical conditions, Camp Korey offers the first opportunity in many years for a vacation. Camp Korey’s extensive medical team helps parents feel a sense of peace of mind when their children are in our care. Similarly, our family weekends provide opportunities to connect families to a strong network of peers who understand the same challenges.
You foster a community – campers, volunteers, staff, doctors, parents, siblings, and donors join together in support of Camp Korey’s mission. When you contribute to Camp Korey, you join an alliance to help sustain our programs and events.
Why We Need You
Camp Korey is free to all children and families, because childhood should never have a price.
The cost to provide an empowering week-long Residential Camp experience for one child is approximately $2,500. We call this a campership. Other programs, like our Camp to You and Family Weekends, have varying costs based on the location of program delivery and medical needs of the children.
Camp Korey is sustained through grants, corporate sponsorships, and the generous support of individuals and corporations.

Camp Korey provides camp experiences to children free-of-charge, and does not base its process for accepting children to attend camp based on ability to pay for services. Instead, Camp Korey seeks philanthropic support to pay for the experience of each child, their siblings, and family members to attend respective camp sessions.
Donors may fund a campership. However, no donation will be accepted if it is given with the intent to pay for a specific child to attend camp. This policy is in effect to maintain the integrity of our camper selection process.
Camperships may be designated in the name of an individual, corporate or foundation donor, but not for a specific child. At the conclusion of a camp season or a specific camp, Camp Korey may designate a child who is considered the beneficiary of a campership. Camp Korey will provide the donor with basic information about the children sent to camp. This occurs after a child attends camp, not before. The parents or guardians of any designated campers must agree to information release only after their child has experienced camp.
