Camp Korey is more than a camp. It’s a place where kids with life-altering medical conditions can just be kids, entirely free of charge. We believe that all children should be able to experience both the joys of childhood and the profound, life-changing impact of camp. Every year, thousands of campers and family members gather in a community of people with shared experiences to sing, dance, laugh, grow, and discover their potential in a medically safe and adaptable environment. Here, campers with 90+ diagnoses can take a true break from being “patients” and rediscover the joy of being a kid.

Our team of year-round and seasonal staff work together to make these joys and impacts a reality. We value the background, skills, and lived experiences of our team in bringing diverse representation to our organization. Every day, we make a difference in families’ lives. Join us!
