We are so excited to announce Camp Korey’s Summer 2017 Program Calendar! We want to give a big thanks to all of our families, volunteers and community members who have been so patient with us this last month.
This year, Camp Korey will be offering six weeks of summer camp followed by two three-day family camps starting July 10th. It is our goal to continue to serve our full spectrum of campers. To that end we are making every session a ‘general session’, where we will be considering all applicants both new and returning. We have also included some session-specific road markers for our larger condition groups. As we are still in the process of building out our bed capacity at camp, it is our hope to again serve sixty and later over one hundred campers a week in the years to come. This year, much like our first year at Carnation Farm, we will be capping our capacity at a little over thirty campers per week.
The schedule you see below reflects our commitment to continue serving our families and condition groups that we have served these past years. The medical and behavioral needs of each session will be kept in ratio with our recruited support that week. We think it is important to acknowledge that our overall capacity to serve as many campers has been temporarily reduced as part of our transition to our new home in Mt. Vernon, WA. Our pledge to you is to make sure that our program this year is the best-fit for your child and welcome you to join us on our journey as we work to expand camp to serve more children each and every year.

What does ‘General Session’ Mean?
‘General Session’ indicates that we will be considering all applicants for the session. All conditions groups we have served we will do our best to again serve this year. We encourage your family to apply to the sessions that work best with your family’s summer plans this year.
Is it possible that my camper may not be accepted this summer, even though they have been to camp before?
As we continue to build out our camp and our property, it is our plan to serve more campers than ever before. For this year, the number of available placements is less than in previous years. Applications will be considered as placements remain available and based on the available support that week.
What happens if my camper is not placed this summer?
If your camper is not placed this year due to available placements, they will be offered an opportunity for early placement next year.
Can I come see the site?
Absolutely! Please reach out to us and we will coordinate a time for you to come to camp and see our new home!
