Camp Kesem at Hopkins 2015

The only thing we’re looking forward to this summer is CAMP!!! Our amazing counselors and executive board have a completely out of this world week planned for our campers, and we can’t wait to share all the awesome activities with everyone! Get your Kesem swag and all of your space gear ready for August!


Blue Jay Dunking Bash

You know that professor you’ve always joke around with? Or that RA you like to prank? On the last day of class, we will be providing you that opportunity! Professors, TA’s, and RA’s from all over campus will be sitting in a dunk tank waiting for you to hit the mark that sends them in. We will be on the beach from 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM on May 1st. Come out and show us if you have what it takes to dunk them! (Co-sponsored by the Hop.)

Delete Blood Cancer Bone Marrow Donor Drive

At JHU’s 44th Annual Spring Fair, we registered 26 potential bone marrow donors! Each of these people swabbed their cheeks in hopes of being matched to someone in the registry now or in the future. Together with Delete Blood Cancer, CKJHU is hoping to end this horrible disease!


Krispy Kreme Fundraiser

Every semester, we bring the lovely people of Hopkins the opportunity to buy Krispy Kreme donuts while supporting CKJHU. This semester, we sold out within 2 hours. Whoa! In combination with last semester’s KK Fundraiser, we raised enough to sponsor 3 campers for a week!

Make the Magic 2015

This year’s Make the Magic was on April 16th and we had a great turnout, including past CKJHU leaders, community members, and Advisory Board members and family. The Under the Sea theme was beautiful and we even had performances by JHU Magic! In total, we raised enough money to sponsor two campers for a week! That magic has motivated us to do our best in creating an awesome week of camp this summer.

Spring Reunion 2015

Reunions are our favorite times of the year! (Besides camp, of course.) We met up with a few of our awesome campers at Meadowood Regional Park on April 4th for an afternoon of games, food, and arts & crafts! For those who couldn’t make it out, we revealed the theme of camp 2015 to be Out of this World! Start putting together your best alien, astronaut, or space-themed outfit for camp! (More pictures are on our Facebook, linked to the left.)

Online Auction

With donations from local and national companies, including Giant, The Charmery, and The Brewer’s Art, we help our 2nd annual online auction the last week of March! In total, we raised enough to sponsor 1 camper for a week! Thanks to those who made bids on the items listed!

Make the Music

This spring was our first time putting together a musical showcase, complete with various Hopkins dance and acapella groups. We had 14 groups perform, and a 50-50 raffle. It was a magical night, and the performers were amazing!
