Camp Kesem is available to children in the greater Los Angeles area (Los Angeles, Ventura, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Orange counties) between the ages of 6-16 who have or have had a parent with cancer. Camp Kesem at UCLA is a secular camp and is open to all children regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, or financial status. Due to the financial burden experienced by families coping with cancer, Camp Kesem is provided free of charge to the families it serves.
If you require more information about the enrollment process, please contact our Camper Care committee at email@example.com.
