magic. happens. here.

Donations directly fund the expenses of individual campers. Will you be the one to send Oddish (“Punch Cancer”) to camp? Will you help Drew “Be Strong”? Twix comes to camp because of the “Hakuna Matata” attitude. Will you give her that experience? Smalls returns to camp each year so he can “live strong”.

Help us become family and feel the magic with whatever donation you are able to give. By giving $500 you sponsor a full week for one of our campers! We’ll send you an individual thank-you written by one of our campers Hank, or Elphaba, or Lola, etc. You’ll also receive a photo of your camper. Finally, you’ll get to experience the magic first-hand by receiving free admittance to Camp Kesem sponsored events including the reunions, fundraisers, dinners, and even a camp visit!
