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 free summer camps for children who have been touched by a parent's cancer. Founded at Stanford University in 2000, Camp Kesem has since expanded to over 80 chapters in 38 states across the country. With over 5 million children touched by a parent's cancer, Camp Kesem must continue expanding to meet this need. Kesem is the only national organization dedicated to this unique population, and for many children their Camp Kesem experience is a life-changing event - providing them a community of children with similar experiences, and a safe and welcoming environment to have fun and rediscover their childhood. Beyond that, their replicable and highly scalable funding model also allows for rapid expansion. In the last five years they have expanded their service reach by four times. In summer 2015, 5,000 children attended over 70 week-long sessions of Camp Kesem held at fun and exciting campsites from coast-to-coast. And with your help, they hope to continue supporting more and more children each year! Thank you for being an important part of their growth as they support children through and beyond their parent's cancer with innovative, fun-filled programs that foster a lasting community!
