Tim and Donna Rose, who lost their teenage son, Korey, to cancer, founded Camp Korey in his honor in 2005. Their dream of a safe haven for Northwest families struggling with childhood illness became a reality in 2008, when Camp Korey opened its doors at the historic 817-acre Carnation Farm. Located 45 minutes from Seattle, Camp Korey has a unique agricultural theme and everything a camper could want or need.
Camp Korey operates year round, offering eight summer sessions, hospital outreach, family and reunion weekends, and specialty programs. Hundreds of campers battling conditions such as Mitochondrial Disease, craniofacial differences, Juvenile Diabetes, and organ transplants find joy and acceptance at Camp Korey. Kids meet others who share their experiences, and quickly realize that as Camp Korey campers, they are not alone.
