Welcome to Camp Kesem University of Florida!
P.O. Box 14097 Gainesville, FL, 32604


There are over 3 million children in the United States who have been affected by a parent's cancer, thousands of whom live in the north central Florida area. We partner with local hospitals, cancer support groups, schools, and community organizations to ensure that campers have the chance to share their experiences, learn from their peers, and have a lot of fun!

Camp Kesem is a college student-run summer camp for kids with a parent who has (or has had) cancer. Our one-week sleep away camps are a chance for kids ages 6 -16 to have a fun-filled week to just be kids. Everything we do at Camp Kesem focuses on our goal of giving our campers the most fun week possible, while providing the extra support and attention they need. 2014 will be our 7th summer of camp and will serve about 90 campers.

We hope you'll join us in supporting the often-overlooked population of children who have been affected by a parent's cancer.

"My favorite vacation is Camp Kesem. I get to come to camp and see all my best friends.”
