Camp Kesem Emory is a free, week-long summer camp for children whose parents have or have had cancer, run by students at Emory University. Last summer, 75 campers attended Camp Kesem Emory’s sixth year of camp. Camp Kesem Emory 2014 was a huge success! Pictures from camp can be found on our Facebook page, as well as on our camp blog here.

Our one week sleep-away camp is an opportunity for kids between the ages of 6 and 16 to meet other kids facing similar life challenges and spend a week having fun and just being kids.

“Camp Kesem was a true gift to my boys and I this year. It was not coincidence that I read that one newsletter in the midst of everything that was going on in my life at the time! My boys had a blast at Camp Kesem Emory!”—Cristi C., parent

 Camp Kesem Emory 2014 was a blast! Thank you to everyone who came out to help make this year amazing! Camp this summer will be at Athens Y Camp in Tallulah Falls, GA from June 28th to July 3rd. We can’t wait for the fun that is to come!
