Become a Counselor

Counselor applications for Camp Kesem 2014 are now closed! Even if you cannot be a camp counselor, you can still help us plan and fundraise for camp! General members are important in making sure camp is a success by working in one of 6 committees.  Counselor training is every Wednesday from 7-8 with meetings following from 8-9. To find out where these meetings are, please e-mail berkeley.volunteer@campkesem.org and we will add you to our student mailing list! Camp Kesem is open to all UC Berkeley undergraduate students, and general members are organized into one of six committees for the semester. Once the counselor application is released, members are encouraged to fill it out and apply to be counselors for the week of camp. The counselor selection process occurs in the Spring. Listed are the main responsibilities that each committee is responsible for throughout the year.
