Every Friday, we are delivering new opportunities to participate in camp programming via our website and social media. Your family will have new and exciting options to engage in activities, crafts, cabin chat conversations, fun resources, and more to help support you through this unprecedented time.

While we know this doesn’t replace the joy of coming to camp, we hope it provides some respite and happiness to your family. We would LOVE to hear from YOU about what you would like to see included. Are there certain camp games you want to share with your family? Skits you would like to see online? Staff you want to hear from? We want to hear all about it! Please send your ideas to  info@campkorey.org.

Join the Child Life Team today in learning about the importance of washing your paws! Handwashing is so important!! You have probably learned lots of new things recently about how germs are spread, so today you can watch this video of Josh showing why it is so important to spend at least 20 seconds each time you wash your hands. Sing at least 3 verses of Baby Shark to make sure every FINger is squeaky clean! 
We have the opportunity to celebrate all things fuzzy this week! A tradition that every Camp Korey camper is familiar with is our Warm Fuzzy Bags. Every camper creates a Warm Fuzzy bag so they can share and receive kind notes from their camp friends! This week, we encourage our caregivers to create their own Warm Fuzzy bags with their family member to encourage each other to share with each other what we appreciate and love about one another. Remember the A in the STAR model… always build up!
The materials you will need for this activity are:

  • Paper bag
  • Paper
  • Pens, pencils, crayons, or markers
  • Optional: Bobbles and do-dads to add to your bag (stickers, stamps, etc.)
Cabin Chat is a reflective activity that every camper participates in during summer camp programs. Campers are asked questions and encouraged to share with their new friends. We encourage you to host a Cabin Chat with your family!
  1. Identify a talking object. Whoever has the talking object is the only one sharing at that moment. Fun idea for this week is to find a favorite furry friend! 
  2. Don’t laugh unless it's meant to be funny.
  3. What happens in Cabin Chat stays in Cabin Chat. This is a space where everyone should feel safe to share!
  4. Challenge by Choice. Everyone has the options to choose to share, or choose to pass on a question. 
  • If you could be any animal, what animal would you choose to be an why?
  • What has been your favorite activity or new skill you have learned recently?
  • What is one piece of advice you would give your camp friends today?
A favorite activity for our Camp Korey community is getting crafty with some arts and crafts projects! Join us as we create some fun animal creations together! Rawr!

Check out these fun craft ideas below!
  1. Animal Shadow Puppets
  2. Animal Shadow Art
  3. DIY sensory bottle or scenes (make a friendly monster, navigate an animal through a maze, animal washing station, fun farm scenes)
One of the most magical parts of coming to camp is all the fun camp activities you get to do. We want to take this moment to bring some camp magic to you! Come hang out with us as we explore some camp favorites! 

This week . . . check in with our horse program volunteers from last year! Beth, her daughters, and their horses came to camp almost every session, and today they are taking us along with them to give the horses a spring treat and introduce us to each of them.
Based on our theme of the week, “Animal Kingdom,” we want to share some fun resources you can explore right from the comfort of your own home!
