Here are what some of the Camp Kesem camper parents have said out Univeristy of Oregon's chapter:
“Thank you so much for the opportunity to support Camp Kesem. My four children lost their father in 2010 to cancer. We have worked hard to live well since our loss and rebuild a sense of normalcy. We have done counseling, support groups, kept lines of communication open, and have a wonderful support network of fabulous family and friends; however, out of all the consistent work we have done to grieve appropriately the children made more progress and seem more well adjusted after five days at Camp Kesem than all the other work combined in two years! They came away with hope and were so encouraged. As a mom of grieving children I am so incredibly grateful. We look forward to reunions and camp next year. Your staff and program are top notch -- beyond our wildest expectations. Thank you!”
Camp Kesem University of Oregon was founded in 2011 with 30 campers and now in just 3 years our goal is to have 90 campers this summer! Thank you for your support!
"What an amazing program, run by amazing college students. All donating their time and energy to make this camp so special. I just can’t get over it."
We cannot wait to make even more memories and magic this summer!
