Like what you see? Get involved!

Camp Kesem is always in need of student volunteers to help out with camp. You must be a student at BYU-Idaho to help out here.

All counselors are BYU-I students who go through a competitive application and interview process.  We welcome all students to join a committee to help out, as you are not required to be a counselor to be on a committee. However if you are on a committee, you will have priority to come to camp as a counselor when the time comes to choose who gets to go! All of our students are passionate about the mission of Camp Kesem and often put in several hours each week on top of their coursework to make camp as successful as possible.


There are a few ways you can help out. Despite camp being only one week a year, we work a full school year to fund raise, prepare, train, advertise and organize camp. In order to do this, we are organized into 5 committees.


The committees are:

1) Development
As a completely student run organization, we raise all of the money ourselves through donations, letter writing, and fundraising events.
Our budget is constantly increasing, and with it we need more and more people to help fund raise.

2) Outreach
This committee strives to find and work with campers and their parents. They organize the reunions, make sure the campers have all the required information to go to camp, and in general deal with all things that have to do with enabling the children to go to camp.

3) Operations
This committee helps organize the logistics of camp, help monitor budgetary concerns for camp, and also helps pick the campsite.

4) Volunteer
This recruits volunteers, organizes the training of the counselors, picks the counselors, and recruits students to get involved with camp.

5) Marketing and PR
The marketing and PR team help advertise special events, publish camp news on social media and contact local radio stations to get the word out about camp kesem!


Interested in becoming a part of our team?

We hope that you will all consider applying to become part of this amazing organization, dedicated to serving families and children suffering from the burden of cancer. Your best chance to become a counselor for camp, is to join one of the committees and help prepare for camp!
