Welcome to Camp Kesem Minnesota!
This year we will be hosting camp from August 17th to the 23rd at Camp Heartland in Willow River, MN!
Camp Kesem is a college student run summer camp for kids with a parent who has cancer, is in remission from cancer, or has passed away from cancer. Student volunteers at the University of Minnesota are currently organizing our third year of camp for August 2014.
Our goal for this year is to raise $70,000 in order to host 85 campers.
Do you know a child between the ages of 6-16 whose parent has or had cancer? Send them to Camp Kesem Minnesota! Camper applications will open to the public on January 1!
A little help from our Friends
A lot of very talented individuals who work for volunteer organizations have the opportunity to also work for large businesses as well. If you are interested in senior management positions, it might be a good idea to connect with an executive search firm. Another route to take is to meet and coordinate with headhunters, individuals with a well established network of potential employers.
Volunteer organizations and individuals are needed all over the world. If you are looking to volunteer in certain areas abroad, make sure to pick a destination you might want to travel to as well. Many people who travel to do volunteer work in Indonesia usually get a day or two to relax at a Bali villa during their time in the Southeast Pacific.
