About Us

Camp Kesem is a college student run organization that helps kids with a parent who has (or has had) cancer regain their childhood. Our chapter was founded in 2013 and has been growing ever since. Last year, we serviced 23 kids and this year we have doubled our size. Everything we do at Camp Kesem focuses on giving our campers the most fun week possible, while providing the extra support and attention they need.

This is our second year as Camp Kesem Santa Clara University. We are so excited to be hosting our second camp this summer August 9-14 at Redwood Glen! We hope that our camp can provide all campers the unique environment to embrace being a kid and be in the comfort of other children who are going through similar circumstances. After dealing with the emotional pressures we hope to simply create magic and create an atmosphere of fun while creating a community that recognizes and understands the unique needs of each child. We look forward to summer 2015!
