Welcome to Camp Kesem at Stanford

Camp Has a New Phone Number!

The updated number is now (650) 646-5629

The old phone number still works, but we are switching to Google Voice to make your calls accessible no matter where we are!  Your calls will now be forwarded to the office phone and to the director’s cell phone.  Thanks for your patience and understanding!


Our new camper application is here!

Please access our online application here to be added to our waitlist for Camp Kesem Stanford (June 15-21, 2015) and we will notify you as soon as a spot opens up in your child’s age group. Feel free to contact our Family Relations Coordinator, Nick “Tui” Simon, at families@campkesemstanford.org with any questions you might have.


If you register a camper, here are a few additional tips:

1) We are using active.com as the platform for our registration. You may already have an active.com account from another event, but if you forgot your sign-in password, you can follow the instructions on the website to reset your password. If you have never used active.com previously, you will be prompted to create a new account.
2) After you click the link below, click the blue ADD button to begin the registration process. Adjust the “Quantity” option for however many campers you are registering. Then, click the orange CONTINUE button to go to the next page.You will then be prompted to log in or create an account. While registering, it will give you the chance to register yourself or “another adult” – choose “another adult” to register you camper (we’re sorry this is confusing).
Let us know if you have trouble and we’re more than happy to help :)

Amazon Smile Account

Camp Kesem at Stanford now has an AmazonSmile account. 0.5% of proceeds from Amazon purchases will go directly to Camp Kesem at Stanford if people shop on smile.amazon.com.

Here’s how:

1. Go to http://smile.amazon.com/ch/77-0492512 2. Make sure it lists Center for Jewish Campus Life as the charity – we share an account with Hillel at Stanford, but the funds from Amazon will go directly to providing a week of fun for our campers! 3. Every time you want to shop on Amazon, go to smile.amazon.com. All proceeds will support Camp Kesem at Stanford, but you must go through smile.amazon.com each time.

Thanks for supporting Camp Kesem, and happy shopping!
