Step right up everyone and enter the Camp Korey Carnival! 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   programs@campkorey.org.

This week’s theme is "Carnival". We here at Camp Korey love the opportunity to spend time with you all here at camp or wherever you may be in this moment! This week we will give you opportunities to attempts some daring feats of magical wonder!

First of all, thank you for all who participated last week and congratulations to our winners of some awesome Camp Korey swag! We had so much fun doing a live carnival for you!

This week we would love to have you participate in the flat fuzzy challenge! We are not sure if you have heard of the " Flat Stanley Project", but we want to put our very own Camp Korey spin on it and do the "Flat Fuzzy Project"! Design your very own Flat Fuzzy and sent it via email or mail to one of our sister camps in the Serious Fun Children's Network! Let them know that they are not alone and that we out here at Camp Korey are thinking about them and sending them ALL the warm fuzzies!

For all who make a Flat Fuzzy, we will enter you into a drawing to win the brand new 2020 camp shirt and some other camp goodies! Please send your Flat Fuzzy, a picture of you making it, a fun video, or a note about it to programs@campkorey.org. (We'd also appreciate if you'll let us know if we have parent or guardian permission to share your submission on our social media channels!)

Drawings will happen during our Facebook Live adventure next Wednesday at 3pm! See you there!!

Cotton Candy Slime

Here is your chance to join Erin in making some cotton candy slime! If you start to feel anxious or sad, take out your cotton candy slime to help you feel better!


Hey Campers and your amazing caregivers! 


We hope everyone is having a fantastic day today! We have a couple of activities for you in this week’s edition of Guardians of our Galaxy. We wanted to make sure to take a few moments to spend time growing together as a family!

Warm Fuzzy Ticket Book
This is a fun way to make sure that your Caregiver and guardian, especially a mother figure in your world since Mother's Day is on Sunday, knows just how much you love and appreciate them! Fill out these tickets and create your very own Ticket Book and give it to your caregiver! If they redeem a coupon don't forget to honor that!


Family Movie Night
Brainstorm movies that have circus, carnival, or adventure theme. Put them in a bowl, mix it around and whatever you pick you watch together.  

Here are a couple ideas to get you started:
  • Dumbo
  • The Greatest Showman

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. 
  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. 
1.      If you could have any three acts in your circus, what would they be?
2.      What is your favorite circus snack?
3.      If you could create a new, unique circus act, what would you create?
A favorite activity for our Camp Korey community is getting crafty with some arts and crafts projects! Join us as we walk the tightrope of fun!

Family Caricatures
One of the best parts of going to the carinival is getting one of those caricature drawings of yourself and your family! Take a moment to think about their favorite activities, colors, and things and then create your own caricature of them!
Ferris Wheel of Fun
Create your very own Ferris wheel! So many ways to do it! Use your engineering skills to see if you can do one with moving parts and will hold small toys!
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!

Tower of Flour Challenge
Challenge your family to the tower of flour challenge! Using flour and butter knives see who can make the tower topple first! Rules are simple:

You start by creating a tower out of flour. Put it into a pitcher and pack it down and then turn it over on the table (I recommend a cookie sheet to keep it contained)

  1. You place the M&M (or something similar like a popcorn kernel) at the top of the tower
  2. Two people on opposite sides of the table are each given a plastic knife or a butter knife
  3. Alternating turns each person “slices” away a section of the mountain until the M&M falls
  4. Add an extra challenge of whoever loses has to put their face in the flour to find the M&M!
 
The object of the game is similar to Jenga in that you try and see how narrow the “tower” can get before it crumbles. The person who makes the slice that causes the tower to collapse loses. Challenge accepted!
Warm Fuzzy Activity
One of the most meaningful and powerful parts of camp is the opportunity to share warm fuzzies with the entire camp community! We do this in a lot of different ways and want to encourage you to share warm fuzzies from the inside out. 
Tattoo Parlor of Love
Hang out with our good friend Merrick at his Tattoo Parlor of love! Draw/write a word or thing on yourself or a friend and share why that "tattoo" represents you! Send Merrick your creative and fun tattoos at programs@campkorey.org
One of the best ways to connect with each other is over food and sharing a meal together!
Have fun creating a funhouse of deliciousness with Rose!
