About Camp Korey
Camp Korey empowers children and families living with serious medical conditions to reach beyond the barriers of their illness and reclaim the joyful adventures of childhood. Always free of charge, our programs offer an escape from the endless medical treatments that overshadow childhood. Campers grow stronger, braver, and build leadership skills that they take into their everyday lives. Our campers have reported an increase in self-esteem, confidence and resilience, along with a network of friends and support to help them through the tough times. We work with a dedicated team of medical professionals and program facilitators to create a medically safe camp adventure.
Camp Korey was founded in 2005 by Tim Rose and his family to honor the life of their son, Korey, who lost his battle with bone cancer at age 18. Camp Korey serves approximately 4,000 children and families annually through Residential Summer Camps, Family Weekends, Family Day Adventures, and the Camp to You outreach program which brings the Camp Korey experience to children in healthcare settings. To date, we have served over 22,000 children and families across the Pacific Northwest.
