NBC 29 covers Camp Kesem UVA
A group of students from the University of Virginia is taking time before classes start to help kids facing tough challenges. In its seventh year, Camp Kesem at UVA helps children affected by cancer forget the stress, and just have fun.
Almost 70 kids and three dozen UVA students look forward to this at the end of every summer. Camp Kesem is designed to help kids forget about the stresses of cancer that plague them every day.
Many have parents or siblings that suffer from the disease, and this camp helps them put aside their worries, and enjoy time with friends who understand what they’re going through.
