Camp Korey believes:
- Children First – Children are children first; their abilities and medical conditions do not define them. All of the activities at camp, from meal time and boating, to ropes courses and cabin chats, are designed to be child-centered.
- Therapeutic Play – Everything at camp incorporates intentional programming and is based on the principles of therapeutic recreation. Camp activities build confidence, independence and optimism.
- Challenge By Choice – Each individual chooses to what extent they participate in each activity depending on their appropriate level of challenge. Through challenge by choice, children have the opportunity to try new things in an environment that is positive and exciting.
- Barrier Free – Camp and camp activities are universally accessible making it possible for children to participate in any activity they choose. In addition, children of all backgrounds, circumstances and with a wide variety of medical conditions are welcome, always free of charge.
