Local Burien Camper Performs Before 500

Carnation, WA – Local Burien resident, Cassidy Huff performed in front of an audience of 500 on Saturday, September 19th at Grow, an annual fundraising event for Camp Korey. Cassidy was born with Conradi-Hunermann Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder involving skeletal development and has attended Camp Korey for the last five years. “Camp Korey has changed me because I felt really self-conscious when I got there.  I wasn’t really shy, but I was self-conscious and I didn’t know what to do, and was kind of scared of the world around me, so camp has really opened my eyes. I see things differently and see things that are more beautiful,” says Cassidy. Camp Korey is celebrating it’s 10 anniversary year, and is the only SeriousFun Camp in the Pacific Northwest, hosting life changing programs throughout the year for children living with serious medical conditions.
