Life at Camp Cory’s Overnight Camp is based on friendship and community. Your child will stay in a cabin with 7-10 other children their age and gender, in a co-ed village led by staff members who care. Campers in these cabins learn to make new friendships and live with others in an inclusive environment. In addition, campers participate in activities with their cabin and village that focus on team building and work to create a sense of belonging.
