• Camp Kesem is a nationwide, nonprofit organization that provides free summer camp and year-long support for children who have been affected by their parent's cancer. This could mean that their parent currently has cancer, has had cancer, or past away due to the terrible disease. At Camp Kesem, our goal is to provide support for the children who have experienced adult-sized problems at a young age, while also giving them a fun escape and a chance to bond with other children facing similar experiences. Our camp is open to any child between the ages of 6-16 and is completely free of charge!

    Last year, Camp Kesem at Indiana University was able to serve 150 children from Central and Southern Indiana. This year, we are hoping to serve 190 children. With your help, we can provide these children with sense of community and lifelong friendships! If you know of any families that would benefit from our services, please have them email me at indiana.outreach@campkesem.org or visit our website at campkesem.org/indiana. If you would like more information or other ways you can help Camp Kesem, please feel free to email me as well!

    Our registration for Camp 2017 will open to new families on January 15th and we have many spots available! We hope that we will able to serve families from your school!

    Thank you for reading and I hope that the New Year brings happiness and peace to you!
