This is my first year here at camp, and I can already tell I’ll be back next year. The atmosphere here is just pure love and happiness. Everyone is always positive and always finding new ways to have fun. I can personally say that this camp has been one of the best experiences of my life. Anyone who comes here is bound to have an amazing time—Hurdle, Counselor in Training



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 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!
