To support children through and beyond their parent's cancer with innovative, fun-filled programs that foster a lasting community.
To ensure that every child touched by a parent's cancer is never alone.
Camp Kesem is a nationwide community, driven by passionate college student leaders, that supports children through and beyond their parent’s cancer. A program of Kesem, Camp Kesem operates over 70 free summer camps in 34 states for children ages 6 to 16 who have been touched by a parent’s cancer. This camping experience has a lasting impact on children by providing them a peer-support network that understands their unique needs, builds confidence and strengthens their communication skills. In 2015, Camp Kesem served over 5,000 children coast-to-coast - all funded by generous donations from individuals and corporate support.
Camp Kesem Berkeley was founded in 2006 and supports children in the Bay Area community by providing two week-long summer camp experiences and year-long peer support. Camp Kesem Berkeley is operated by 150+ student volunteers and serves ~180 campers ages 6-18 per year.
