The Life-Changing Gift of Summer Camp for Kids With a Serious Illness
In the heart of the Snoqualmie Valley, Camp Korey on Carnation Farm is the place hundreds of young campers come to in order to experience childhood the way it was intended. For all eight one-week sessions, kids with varying medical challenges and illnesses are treated just like kids are at any other summer camp; and the results are life-changing. Dr. Anne Slater of Seattle Children’s is the medical director of the camp; she and her team of fellow doctors, nurses and volunteers are here to keep the kids healthy and safe but in a way that lets campers focus on camp.
