Happy Campers!

“My kids didn’t want to leave. They are excited about next year already.  Thank you to everyone for being an extended family for the week. You are all truly amazing people who could have chosen to do anything in this world but instead chose to touch the lives of families dealing with cancer. You touched our kids and all of us in a memorable way. No doubt about it, there were angels walking around on Friday with Camp Kesem tie dye shirts on!”
– Parent, Camp Kesem OSU
