Recently, Camp Korey, a camp serving children with serious and life-altering medical conditions and their families, located in Carnation, celebrated their Fall Family Weekend with help from the employees from Hasbro.
Carrying boxes full of toys and games, Hasbro employees came to Camp Korey on Saturday, October 12, to host a fun-filled Hasbro Game Day for the families attending camp.
Hasbro has also provided Camp Korey with a $25,000 grant to support family programming at the camp.
"Illness affects the entire family and often causes them to miss out on quality time together," said Hillary Carey, executive director, Camp Korey. "We’re so grateful to Hasbro for its commitment to Camp Korey and for providing our families with the opportunity to connect through the power and fun of games."
Team Hasbro volunteers took part of their weekend to spend time with campers and their families playing classic games such as Candy Land and Connect 4, as well as exciting new games like Kaijudo and Jenga Tetris.
Camp Korey conducts weekend programs for families throughout the fall, winter and spring.
These special weekends offer campers who have been to summer camp the chance to reunite and introduce other families to camp, enabling the entire family to feel the joy, healing and growth that is provided through all Camp Korey programs.
The experience enables families to bond and offers them a respite from the daily challenges that accompany illness, helping to foster connections with other camp families.
