Camp Kesem is a nationwide community driven by passionate college student leaders that supports children through and beyond their parents cancer. Camp Kesem at Virginia Commonwealth University is created, funded and run entirely by a team of college student volunteers at Virginia Commonwealth University.


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

What is a “Kesem”?

Kesem (n.): magic; the ability to change a life; an agent of growth; the unique power that transforms kids into Camp Kesem Campers

Who makes Camp Kesem happen?

Although Camp Kesem is a national organization, it us up to each chapter at each university to plan, organize, and fundraise for their own camp.
