There are over 3 million children in the United States who are affected by a parent's cancer.

Originally founded in 2004 by UCLA students and Camp Kesem Stanford Alumni, Camp Kesem at UCLA is a student-run summer camp that provides more than 200 of these deserving children with a magical and care-free week of traditional summer camp fun. Campers are empowered with the tools to express their emotions through camp activities, such as arts and crafts, drama, and cabin chat. The self-esteem that they gain and the friendships that they form with peers facing similar challenges provide support well beyond the week of camp.

Camp Kesem at UCLA is run by a committee of 16 undergraduate student coordinators who work continuously throughout the year to make camp a reality. Our camp is staffed by 85 enthusiastic volunteer students from UCLA giving us our unique 3:1 camper to counselor ratio. It is this individual attention that creates lasting bonds between counselors and campers, and helps to foster a safe and welcoming environment for children.

We hope that you join us in supporting these children through and beyond their parent's cancer.
