For Parents

Our Camp

What are the dates of camp?

Camp will be held from June 28th to July 3rd.

How do I apply?

An online application is available as of January 1, 2015. Please email with questions concerning the application process. Campers are accepted on a first come, first serve basis until camper quota is reached.

Camp Kesem has made the shift to online applications! To help you and your family with the new process, see below for application instructions.

Instructions for completing your application:

  • (Select “New User” to begin the application process)
  • We will ask for immunization and health records in a follow-up health-history and physician authorization form when your child has been accepted to the program.
  • The system allows you to register one child at a time, but when you reach the end of the first child’s application, you’ll have the option to add additional children. If you add children, the basic family contact information should be filled in for you.
  • We estimate that it will take between 30-60 minutes to register, depending on the number of children who were being registered.
  • When you reach the end of the application, you’ll be asked to create an online account. This allows you to go in and make updates to your child’s information, register additional siblings at a later time, and fill out future CK applications. When you sign back in, most of the information will be auto-filled for you.
