SUMMER CAMP 2018!!
Please join us at our new 200-acre facility in Mount Vernon, WA!
This summer will feature six, 4-5 day long sessions, serving children ages 7-17, with life-altering medical conditions. Children attend camp on their own, sleeping overnight on camp property during the session. Parents will drop their child off at camp on Monday and pick their child up on Thursday or Friday depending on the session. Campers will have a chance to explore their sense of adventure, bond with others facing similar challenges, and step outside of their comfort zone in a place where “can’t” isn’t part of the vocabulary.
Residential Camp Session(s) 2018:
Session 1 – Craniofacial – June 25 – June 28:
We will be accepting campers who were born with a craniofacial anomaly. Campers who are between the ages of 7-17, will make friends and challenge themselves to try new things as they participate in fun, therapeutic recreational activities.
Session 2 – General Conditions* with Reconstructive Pelvic Medicine focus – July 9 – July 12:
We will have a reconstructive pelvic medicine focus while also serving campers (7-17 years old) with general conditions/ diagnoses.
Session 3 – General Conditions* with Dermatology focus – July 16 – July 19:
We will be accepting campers with general conditions/diagnoses and campers who have been diagnosed with a dermatological condition.
Waitlist Only: Session 4 – General Conditions* with Sibling focus – July 23 – July 26:
- We had an overwhelming response to our Sibling Focus Session! At this time, registration for this session is closed; though we encourage families to continue applying to attend our other general condition summer sessions.
In addition, families are welcome to email our Camper Coordinator at email@example.com to have their names added to our Session 4 waitlist (applications will still be required).
We will be accepting campers with general conditions/diagnoses; we will also be accepting siblings of children with complex medical conditions in order to provide a special camp experience. This week will provide siblings with the opportunity to receive peer support and engage in creative, constructive outlets.
Session 5 – Solid Organ Transplant – July 30 – August 3:
We will serve individuals between the ages of 7-17 who have had a solid organ transplant.
Session 6 – Skeletal Dysplasia/Metabolic Bone Disorder – August 6 – August 10:
We will be serving campers with a diagnosis of Skeletal Dysplasia or a Metabolic Bone disorder.
*General Condition Sessions serve campers with life altering medical conditions including but not limited to: cerebral palsy, chronic kidney disease, cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome, epilepsy, genetic syndromes, mitochondrial disease, reconstructive pelvic medicine conditions, and traumatic brain injuries. If you have any questions about whether or not your child has a qualifying medical condition, please email our Camper Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Camp Korey will not be offering transportation to/from camp this year. While this may be provided in the future, camper families need to coordinate arrival and departure for the 2018 season.
Here are the directions on How to Apply
View the Summer Camp Application Checklist to assist with registering with camp!
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.
