Camp Kesem MSU

Welcome to Camp Kesem MSU’s new blog!! We wanted to start one to give updates on how camp planning is going, now that we are in our busiest season! For those of you who don’t know, Camp Kesem is a nationwide nonprofit organization completely run by college students that provides a free weeklong summer camp for kids whose parents have or have had cancer.  

Our set up:  

2 Co-Chairs and 14 members on the e-board-

  • 3 Camper Care Coordinators who find all of our campers as well as host our reunions.  
  • 2 Administration and Programming Coordinators who find in-kind donations and supplies, as well as plan camp.  
  • 2 Fundraising Coordinators, we have to raise $42,000 in order to run camp successfully.  
  • 2 Make the Magic Coordinators who put on our biggest fundraiser that consists of dinner and silent auction, this year we raised $11,000! 
  •  2 Student Support Coordinators who get new involvement from the student body.  
  • 2 Public Relations Coordinators who advertise for our fundraisers and build relationships with local businesses.  
  • 1 Registered Student Organization Coordinator who is in charge of connecting Camp Kesem MSU with other student organizations on campus.  

Right now we are working hard finding campers, our goal is to double our campers from last year from 30 to 60!! If you know of any parents who have or have had cancer with children ages 6-16, direct them to our camper page for an application.
