Camp Kesem at Duke University
Kesem’s mission of supporting children through and beyond a parent’s cancer, and our vision of ensuring that every child impacted by a parent’s cancer is never alone, can only be realized through an ongoing, steadfast commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in every part of our organization.
To that end, Kesem makes the following commitments:
-To continually expand the communities we support and work with - our camper families, volunteers, staff, alumni, and supporters - with attention to engaging underrepresented communities.
-To strive for equity in delivering a transformative, healing, and empowering experience to those communities that recognizes and embraces our differences in race, religion, ability, nationality, sexual orientation, gender expression and identity, family structure, cancer stage or type, or socioeconomic status.
-To work to ensure that every member of the Kesem community feels safe, loved, and respected.
Our team works year-round to provide continuous support and love to our camper families through fundraising, care packages, letters and reunions. We love nothing more than our Kesem family.
