CARNATION — The historic Carnation Farm will reportedly become Camp Korey, the Northwest’s only Hole in the Wall Gang Camp for seriously ill children.
Actor Paul Newman started the Hole in the Wall camps in 1988. He is expected to be at the farm Thursday morning for the formal announcement.
Tim Rose, a vice president with Costco, has been developing the project, named after his son, Korey Rose, who died in 2004 from bone cancer. Rose announced in December 2005 a tentative deal with Quadrant Homes to build the camp on a 122-acre site near Redmond. The site was intended to open in 2007 and host as many as 1,200 kids each summer.
The 817-acre Carnation Farm most recently has been the Nestle Regional Training Center.
