Have cancer? Have kids?
Or know someone that does?
Camp Kesem is here for you!
(Oh, and it’s FREE, too.)
Who are we?
We are the University of South Alabama chapter of a national nonprofit organization that recognizes and embraces the often-overlooked population of children affected by a parent’s cancer by providing a FREE weeklong, overnight camp every summer.
Why do we do it?
There are over 5 million children affected by a parent’s cancer in the USA. Because they don’t appear sick, their needs are often not addressed—they suffer quietly, which can have long-lasting negative effects. Camp Kesem is the only national nonprofit that supports their unique needs. We create a peer support network for these kids and give them the chance to just be kids again!
Who is eligible to attend camp?
Camp Kesem is for all children ages 6-16 with a parent of primary caregiver who has or has had cancer. Camp Kesem does not discriminate based on race, religion, or socioeconomic status.
