We are reaching out to update you on our summer 2017 schedule. Over the last few days, Camp Korey leadership and the board of directors have been considering the long-term vision for Camp Korey. After a careful look at our large-scale projects and our current ambitious construction schedule, we’ve made the decision to postpone our week-long summer residential camps and family weekends for this Summer 2017. We recognize the efforts that you put into completing your applications, and acknowledge how frustrating this news may be. This was not a decision easily made; our goal has always been to provide campers with a safe, fun, and enriching summer experience.

In place of our summer residential camps and family weekends, we will be hosting a variety of events to provide parents and kids with the opportunity to visit the new Camp Korey before it’s completed.  It will be a chance to meet our staff and volunteers, play games, tour the property, and plan for a full-time residential camp next year.  Our program staff will also be leading camper families on ‘Family Day Excursions’ to local destinations throughout the region so our staff and volunteers stay engaged with kids and keep our Camp Korey friendships going strong. We have several confirmed events, such as:

  • Summer Kick-Off Event & Cirque du Soleil: May 7
  • YMCA Challenge Course: June 23 and July 21
  • Woodland Park Zoo: May 27 and July 20
  • Mariners Games: July 26 and September 22
  • Outdoors for All Cycling & Kayaking: May 14, June 18, and August 5

Visit our Events Calendar to RSVP and for Event information.

In addition, we do plan on having a full summer schedule, and we are in the process of setting up new adventures each week. We will be sending out more information soon.

With this additional time we hope to build up our property, create new and exciting program areas, and continue serving our campers in any way we can.

We encourage you to call or email us anytime to discuss more about this decision, and to keep you updated with our new summer schedule. We appreciate your continued support and hope that we will move forward into the future as a team.

Camp Korey empowers children and families living with serious and life-altering medical conditions through year round programming, always free of charge. Our programs help families reclaim the joys and adventures of childhood, and create communal experiences for those who may feel isolated by medical conditions. We work to complement existing care, connect families and enhance their well-being.

Our innovative, intentional program design follows a challenge by choice model, emphasizing safety, respect and empowerment. Our universally accessible programs help campers to re-imagine a future grounded in their strengths instead of their challenges.

Our key program areas are:

  • Residential Summer Camp – Week-long sessions of fun, friendship and adventure for campers ages 7-16.
  • Family Weekend Camps – A weekend of renewal and fun for families connected through a shared experience.
  • Camp to You – The magic of camp at healthcare facilities in Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma and Portland, for those families and children with long waits or hospital stays.
