Camp Kesem at Duke University

*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 08/23/2019
Kesem is a nationwide community, driven by passionate college student leaders, that supports children through and beyond their parent's cancer. Kesem's flagship program, Camp Kesem, operates free summer camps for children who have been impacted by a parent's cancer. During our Summer Camp in August, kids get to have the time of their lives with others who have been through what they have had to go through. With fun activities and lots of cheers, we guarantee you'll find magic here.

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.
