VOLUNTEER: Sewing "Warm Fuzzies" for campers

Warm Fuzzies are a Camp Korey tradition. At the beginning of each residential summer camp session, campers decorate 'Warm Fuzzy Bags’ that hang in the dining hall all week long. Throughout the week, campers and counselors write Warm Fuzzy notes of positivity and appreciation to one another that they then get to take home at the end of the week. Our campers frequently save these Warm Fuzzies for years. As one camper said: "I have all my Warm Fuzzies in a drawer. When you are having a really difficult day, you can pull one out and it’s just made one hundred times better."

The Warm Fuzzy Project was created to continue this sense of community and support for our campers in a more tangible way. Each camper will receive a warm fuzzy creature to take home with them after they complete a week of residential summer camp. These Warm Fuzzies will serve as a reminder of the support and friendships made at camp whenever they need a boost in spirits.

If you enjoy sewing and would like to make the experience of Camp Korey even more magical, please consider creating Warm Fuzzies for our extraordinary campers.

What else ...: Camp Korey offers children and families an escape from the endless medical treatments that have overshadowed childhood. Campers grow stronger, braver, and build leadership skills that they take into their everyday lives. Our campers have reported an increase in self-esteem, confidence and resilience, along with a network of friends and support to help them through the tough times. We work with a dedicated team of medical professionals and program facilitators to create a medically safe camp adventure. Camp is always free to campers and their families, thanks to our volunteers, donors and supporters.
