5th Annual Rubber Duck Derby

Our 5th Annual Rubber Duck Derby will be taking place on April 23rd 2014

At the Rock on Auditorium Road (MSU’s Campus) from 1 – 5 pm

Camp Kesem Michigan State holds our annual Duck Derby on MSU’s campus during the last week of the semester by racing rubber ducks down the Red Cedar River. The first five winners receive amazing prizes that are donated from our East Lansing community businesses, restaurants, as well as some Spartan memorabilia.

Do you want to buy a duck? 

The cost is $5 a duck and you can email to let us know how many ducks you would like to adopt.

What If I want my duck to express who I am? 

You are free to decorate your duck to represent your personal style for the big race!  Although no motors are allowed to be engineered onto your ducky.

When is the actual race? 

The race will take place at 3:00 pm at the Rock. The winners will be notified through email that was provided during adoption.

 Make the Magic 2014

Make the Magic is our biggest fundraiser of the entire year! It is a dinner and silent auction that will be held at Hawk Hollow Golf Club (15101 Chandler Rd., Bath, MI 48808). We had guest speakers to give attendees an insight to why Camp Kesem is so incredible.

Here is a picture of our Make The Magic Coordinators at the event. From left to right: Dip, Rapunzel and Glitter. They worked all year to host this event and it was a huge success! This years event was on March 29th 2014 and we exceeded our $18,000 goal! Thank you to everyone who was able to come out and support Camp Kesem MSU and thank you to our donors!
