It's all about the kids. Young people with serious medical conditions that could never go to a traditional camp have a place where they are with their peers and get to experience summer camp at it's best. Every week everyone has the same medical condition so everyone is the same and can relate to each other. It is free to the campers and their families. Not only do the campers have a blast but in many cases because of their condition their parents have never had a day off as well. So not only are the campers having fun but the parents get a little break. I've been a volunteer for 6 years and I always say it's the best paying job I've ever had. Camp Korey Rocks!
Camp Korey is all about creating magic for kids with serious medical conditions. These children deserve to go to camp and make a lifetime of memories in this incredible setting. Camp Korey also supports families and they have a "Camp to You" program that brings programming to children that cannot leave the hospital. Camp Korey changes lives!!!
