Camp Kesem is the only national organization that supports a child through and beyond a parent’s cancer.
Kesem is unique in that its 70+ chapters nationwide are student-led and run. We take pride in self-funding, meaning a week at camp will put no monetary strain on the camper’s family. This is very important to us since Kesem families already have huge financial burdens from medical treatment and we would not want any child to miss a week of fun and year-after-year support because of financial difficulties.
Our largest fundraising event, Make the Magic, is a black tie gala complete with a sit-down dinner and live entertainment. We expect to have 150 people at this year’s event. Though every counselor is responsible for raising $500 individually, Make the Magic pulls in the majority of funding we need to make camp possible. This year, we are having the event at none other than NCBG Reaves Auditorium on April 21st, 2017!
The event will be a night full of magic- from delicious food to Camp Kesem smiles all around. We hope to see you there!
