Organization's Purpose

Camp Kesem provides a free summer camp experience for children whose parent has or has had cancer. The one-week sleep away camp is a chance for 6-16 year-olds to have a fun-filled week to just be kids. Camp Kesem focuses on giving campers an incredible week which they will remember for the rest of their lives while providing the extra support and attention that they need. Our regular camp is for ages 6-13, and we also have an Adventure Camp for ages 14-16.
