Camp Kesem is a week long, college student run summer camp for children with a parent who has (or has had) cancer. Our all-inclusive, sleep away camp provides an opportunity for children ages 6-13 to have a fun-filled week and just be kids.
Our mission is two-fold:
· To provide children affected by a parent's cancer with a supportive, lifelong camp community that recognizes and understands their unique needs
· To empower college students to make a difference and build invaluable leadership skills by developing and managing every aspect of their Camp Kesem chapter
We hope that you'll join us in making this magic a reality!

About Camp Kesem at VU:
Vanderbilt’s first ever Camp Kesem was held in July of 2012. Our fourth week of camp will be held June 8-13, 2015 at NaCoMe Camp and Conference Center in Pleasantville, TN. Camp Kesem will once again invite children and teens between the ages of 6 and 16 to come and see what the magic is all about!
