Meet Karel Horney

Karel was born in Denver, Colorado in 1949. She attended Denver schools and received her BA in Education and English from the University of Northern Colorado in 1970. After teaching elementary age kids for four years, life lead her to her true calling in co-founding Adam’s Camp, a therapy program for children with special needs and their families in 1986. In the midst of what appeared a successful, well-ordered life, Karel was at the mercy of alcoholism and eating disorders. Juggling addiction with life unraveled when she had triplets and was faced with the task of raising a child with special needs. Today, she shares her story of healing and hope through the work she does with her church, AA and in the community.

Karel has received numerous awards for service for her work with Adam’s Camp and has continued to cultivate her leadership gifts by serving on the board of her church as well as her recovery club.
