Warm Fuzzies are a Camp Korey tradition. At the beginning of each residential summer camp session, campers decorate 'Warm Fuzzy Bags’ that hang in the dining hall all week long. Throughout the week, campers and counselors write Warm Fuzzy notes of positivity and appreciation to one another that they then get to take home at the end of the week. Our campers frequently save these Warm Fuzzies for years. As one camper said: "I have all my Warm Fuzzies in a drawer. When you are having a really difficult day, you can pull one out and it’s just made one hundred times better."

The Warm Fuzzy Project was created to continue this sense of community and support for our campers in a more tangible way. Each camper will receive a warm fuzzy creature to take home with them after they complete a week of residential summer camp. These Warm Fuzzies will serve as a reminder of the support and friendships made at camp whenever they need a boost in spirits.

If you enjoy sewing and would like to make the experience of Camp Korey even more magical, please consider creating Warm Fuzzies for our extraordinary campers.
