“[Camp Kesem] is by far the best camp I have ever been to. Everyone there had about the same reason for being there and it was nice to know others had the same experiences.”

“During cabin chat I was free to express my feelings and everyone listened and no one laughs.

“It’s made him comfortable with my having had cancer and living with the process — he knows he’s not alone.”

 – parent of camper, age 10

 “[Camp Kesem] makes him feel safe in a world that he discovered at an early age is insecure, and relaxes him by having seven days of non-stop fun.”

 – parent of camper, age 7

 “Having come off a very tough year with quite a sickly father, this was a fun-filled, active, self-esteem building camp that stood out as such a wonderfully positive event in such a sad, depressing, stressful year of sickness.”

- parent of camper, age 12
