Camp Kesem is a national organization that runs free camps for children whose parents have cancer. The camps themselves are put together by college students and run by them as well. There are currently 62 active chapters in 29 states.
Camp Kesem at Cornell is a brand new chapter this year and we’re very excited to be part of such an important cause.

OUR FIRST CAMP
Our camp this year will be at Camp Caspar Gregory and will be held from August 9th to 14th. We hope to be able to give 30 campers a week full of fun and are currently fundraising to make that happen. See our donate page to make a contribution or our campers page if you’d like to apply for your child to take part in camp.
