To support children through and beyond their parent's cancer with innovative, fun-filled programs that foster a lasting community.

To ensure that every child touched by a parent's cancer is never alone.

Camp Kesem is a nationwide community, driven by passionate college student leaders, that supports children through and beyond their parent’s cancer. A program of Kesem, Camp Kesem operates over 70 free summer camps in 34 states for children ages 6 to 16 who have been touched by a parent’s cancer. This camping experience has a lasting impact on children by providing them a peer-support network that understands their unique needs, builds confidence and strengthens their communication skills. In 2015, Camp Kesem served over 5,000 children coast-to-coast - all funded by generous donations from individuals and corporate support.

Our History

Camp Kesem at Teton Valley was founded in 2013 and supports children in the Idaho community by providing a week-long summer camp experience and year-long peer support. Camp Kesem at Teton Valley is operated by 15 student volunteers and serves 40 campers ages 6-16 per year. We are not in connection in any way with the Brigham Young University-Idaho establishment, we are a 3rd party group connected with Camp Kesem, but all of our volunteers are students enrolled at BYU-I. We look forward to participating with you in an incredible experience! If you have questions, please email us at: tetonvalley.outreach@campkesem.org
