About Camp Kesem USA

The University of South Alabama is one of eight new locations across the nation to host Camp Kesem. USA is proud to be the first support group of its kind in the state of Alabama as well as three states over (Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi). Camp Kesem is a student-run organization that raises money to send kids aged 6-16 who have parents with cancer to a week-long summer camp for free. Camp Kesem allows kids to be kids and provides a support group for these kids to lean on.

To learn more about Camp Kesem please visit the national website at www.campkesem.org. Also, take a look at the Camp Kesem National Video to see why we’re a part of Camp Kesem and why you should be too!
