Camp Kesem at UC Santa Barbara
Camp Kesem is a nationwide community, driven by passionate college student leaders, that supports children through and beyond their parent’s cancer.
A program of Kesem, Camp Kesem operates over 70 free summer camps in 33 states for children ages 6 to 16 who have been touched by a parent’s cancer.
This camping experience has a lasting impact on children by providing them a peer-support network that understands their unique needs, builds confidence and strengthens their communication skills.
In 2015, Camp Kesem served over 5,000 children coast-to-coast - all funded by generous donations from individuals, foundations, and corporate partners.
