How did you hear about Camp Kesem?
I first heard about CKUW through a friend I lived with freshman year. I came with her to a few meetings and applied to be a counselor. After my first summer with CKUW, I knew that it would become a big part of my college career. Three years later, I can say that my time with CKUW has definitely proved to be a hugely influential experience in my life and there will always be a spot for Camp Kesem in my heart, long after graduation in May.
What are you most looking forward to about next summer’s Camp Kesem?
I’m looking forward to meeting all of the new campers and seeing all of the returning campers!
Explain your position in Camp Kesem. What role do you have?
As a fundraising coordinator, I work with my co-coordinators to plan events, work with businesses and corporations, and write grants in order to fund the next CKUW. It is a lot of work but it is very rewarding to see all of your hard work in the form of an awesome week of summer camp.
Favorite camp activity: Swimming and the high ropes course!
Favorite memory from Camp Kesem: I love all of the goofy times we all share at random times like while waiting in line at the dining hall or in between activities. They always happen when you least expect them J
Favorite Camp Food: Smores!
