Meet the Team

 

 

Hi, my name is Jenna “Athena” Shaw and I am a co-coordinator of Development for Camp Kesem Princeton. I am a Sophmore looking to study in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, and this is my second year participating in Camp Kesem. Some other activities I’m involved with are Princeton Women’s Club Soccer and Unified Sports. I am so excited to be a part of the Camp Kesem family.

Nationwide Community

How Kesem National Supports This Chapter

Kesem’s national staff of over 30 professionals is involved in all aspects of establishing and supporting each of our 100+ chapters nationwide as well as the training and oversight of all college student leaders. Our leadership program has been developed over the last 17 years and, while both rigorous and demanding, is focused on providing the highest level of support, service and safety for the children who participate in our programs.

The Kesem Program Director for this chapter (see below) is involved in all aspects of camp and our additional services. While your local student leaders are your primary contact for questions, you are also welcome and encouraged to contact their Program Director with other specific questions.
