Camp Korey’s New Home!

Camp Korey purchased a beautiful 200-acre property September 2016, that will increase capacity in the number of campers served and medical conditions supported. Located in Mt. Vernon, Washington, Camp Korey’s new home includes 23 buildings with lodges, a garden, ball fields, and a dining hall.

We are so excited to announce Camp Korey’s Summer 2017 Program Calendar! 

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 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 will session 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.
