Are you ready for a life-changing week of camp-filled fun and excitement? Camp Korey is a nonprofit camp that serves kids with life-altering medical conditions, and we are looking for volunteer week-long counselors to help us give our campers the camp experience of a lifetime!

As a Summer Counselor, you will be paired with a cabin to act as their guide to camp! Your job will be to work together with your fellow cabin co-counselors to make sure that camp is a safe environment where everybody who comes to camp can experience joy, growth and healing. This includes taking care of the daily care needs of your campers like keeping them protected from the sun and hydrated. It could also include leading cabin activities like cabin chat or a fun game. So if you're ready to give and receive more love than you can handle, apply to volunteer at Camp Korey!

Summer Schedule (volunteers only need to commit to one session):

Session 1: July 6-11, Respiratory, Neurologic, General Conditions (Open to ALL qualifying diagnoses)
Session 2: July 13-18, Solid Organ Transplant, Cardiac
Session 3: July 20-25, Skeletal Dysplasia, Metabolic Bone Disorders

Mission Statement

Camp Korey's mission is to honor the courage, strength and determination of children and their families living with life-altering medical conditions by providing them with a transformational experience in a fun, safe camp environment with specialized medical support.

Description

Camp Korey offers children and families an escape from the endless medical treatments that have overshadowed 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 is always free to campers and their families, thanks to our volunteers, donors and supporters.
