Taking place in the fall and spring of 2018, Family Weekends allow the whole family to experience the magic of Camp! Family Weekends serve children ages 6-17 with a serious medical illness and their immediate family members. Campers come with their parents and siblings, sleeping overnight from Friday to Sunday at camp together. Our amazing families can bond over an authentic camp experience while making important connections to others. Everyone is sure to create memories that will last a life time!

Processing Your Application
Your camper’s application will be reviewed by our Medical Team once the application is COMPLETE. Once the complete application is submitted our Medical Team will review it and you will be notified of your camper’s enrollment. Due to high volume of applications it may take up to 6 weeks to be notified of your camper’s enrollment status. Enrollment is based on eligibility and completion date (first completed, first reviewed). It is best to complete the application as soon as possible to try to avoid a waiting list.
Unfortunately, Camp Korey may not be able to accommodate all who apply to camp. While we would love to be able to welcome everyone, we do have a limit to the available camper spots so first completed, first reserved. If a session is already full, your camper will be put on a waiting list once all forms are complete and you will be notified. You will be notified if a reservation becomes available.
