About Camp KoreyCamp Korey’s mission is to honor the courage, strength, and determination of children living with serious and life-altering medical conditions and their families; and to provide them with a safe, friendly, medically sound environment in which to simply have fun and be kids. In addition to eight summer camp sessions, Camp Korey serves families year-round with family weekend camps, Camp to You (hospital outreach), young adult retreats and special events. Each year, Camp Korey reaches over 3,000 children completely free of charge. Camp gives kids the opportunity to feel “normal” by meeting kids who share similar challenges and participate in activities that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to, in a safe environment—like reaching the top of the climbing wall or performing on stage for the first time. The camp serves kids ages 7-18 with a variety of medical conditions, including metabolic disorders, craniofacial differences, mitochondrial disease, organ transplants, autism, skeletal dysplasia, sickle cell disease and dermatological disorders.
