Welcome to Camp Kesem Chestnut Hill
As a group of Boston College students, we are excited to announce that Camp Kesem has made its way to Chestnut Hill, Mass! For those of you who may not be familiar with Kesem, the idea is simple: Camp Kesem is a nationwide community, driven by passionate college student leaders, that supports children through and beyond a parent’s cancer. We work to create an opportunity for these children to escape the stress that cancer puts on a family, and attend a free, week-long summer camp.
Here at Camp Kesem Chestnut Hill we have two missions:
Camp Kesem Chestnut Hill will take place from Tuesday Aug. 18th through Aug. 23rd, departing at 10:30am, and returning by 5pm. Camp will be held at the beautiful Camp Hayden Marks located in Fishkill, NY (3 hours by car, transportation will be provided). Camp is free of charge and is offered to children ages 6-16 whose parent has, or has had cancer.
Get EXCITED for Camp!!!!
