What is Camp Kesem Michigan State? 

At CKMSU, we provide an absolutely free weeklong summer camp to a frequently overlooked special needs group; the children of cancer patients. For fifty-one weeks a year, the families of cancer patients watch their loved ones suffer, but for one week during the summer, these kids are free from worry and welcomed by peers of similar circumstance. Here, their confidence takes charge to create the lasting memories every child should experience. Camp Kesem is truly a magical program.

Students at Michigan State University are excited to provide a student-run summer camp program for children who have or had a parent with cancer, where campers build self-esteem and gain support from peers facing similar challenges.  With a camper-counselor ratio of 3:1, campers receive the special attention and support that they would not receive at a regular summer camp

This year we are excited to announce that we are sending 90 kids to camp! We invite you to join the Kesem family and help us make sure that not one child gets left on the waitlist. Every little bit makes a tremendous difference! Donate today!
