Hello again Camp Kesem Augustana Families!
We here at Camp Kesem Augustana hope you are enjoying this summer weather! Augustana College is out for the summer which means Camp Kesem business is moving right along. We are getting incredibly close to fundraising our goal of $45,000 in order to make camp possible and want to thank everyone who came out to our first annual Make the Magic fundraising event on April 27th. The attendees certainly helped us make the magic and get even closer to making camp happen.
In other updates, Camp Kesem Augustana currently has 9 open camper spots for this year’s camp. If you or anyone you know has a child ages 6 to 16 with a parent who currently has, has previously had, or has passed away from cancer and would like to come to our camp, please visit our website at http://campkesem.org/augustana/campers to register for the week. Camper spots are given on a first-come, first-serve basis, so apply now!
In other good news, the camp schedule is complete! This year, campers have a huge list of activities to look forward to including archery, rock climbing, and a low ropes course!
Finally, we wanted to give a huge round of thanks to everyone who helped us in our search to find a nurse and mental health professional for camp. Both positions have been filled!
All in all, we here at Camp Kesem Augustana are getting excited about camp and hope you are too! Keep spreading the word about Camp Kesem and we’ll see you in July!
Until next time,
