About Us

Camp Kesem is a weeklong summer camp held for campers ages 6-16 whose parents have/had cancer. We pride ourselves on being a secular, co-ed camp that brings campers together through a common bond.

At Camp Kesem, safety is our biggest priority. The camp is staffed by highly trained college students who have been selected through an extensive screening and application process. Additionally, a Camp Director from Camp Kesem Nationals, Camp Nurse, and Camp Mental Health Professional will be on site at all times.

We understand the financial burdens of being afflicting with cancer. Thankfully, through the help of our sponsors and donors, we are able to provide Camp Kesem free of charge. Our staff is eager to have a fun and exciting summer with your camper, and looks forward to giving them the opportunity to simply “be a kid.”
