Camp Kesem is a college student run summer camp for kids with a parent who has (or has had) cancer. Our one-week sleep away camps are a chance for kids 6-16 to have a fun-filled week and just be kids. Everything we do at Camp Kesem focuses on our goal of giving campers the most fun week possible, while providing the extra support and attention they need. Learn More

Scoring For Good
We’ve partnered with 3 amazing NFL athletes, EJ Manuel of the Buffalo Bills, Aldon Smith of the San Francisco 49ers and Tyler Polumbus of the Washington Redskins to generate greater awareness of and support for Camp Kesem. They have dedicated their seasons to score for good and are helping us send kids to camp. Support them by downloading the Scoring For Good mobile app available in iTunes & Android to follow and match their donations! More information at www.scoringforgood.org.
“My kids didn’t want to leave. They are excited about next year already. Thank you to everyone for being an extended family for the week. You are all truly amazing people who could have chosen to do anything in this world but instead chose to touch the lives of families dealing with cancer. You touched our kids and all of us in a memorable way. No doubt about it, there were angels walking around on Friday with Camp Kesem tie dye shirts on!”
