Welcome to Camp Kesem Minnesota!


Camp will be held at One Heartland again this year! Stay tuned for dates.

Camp Kesem is a summer camp run by college students 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 fourth year of camp for summer of 2015.

This year we plan to double the size of camp to 120 campers and host two separate weeks of camp!

Counselor applications are now open! The final deadline to apply is February, 5 at 11:55 pm. Follow this link or go to our “Become a Counselor” page to apply:

A little help from our Friends
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.
