Camp Kesem is the largest national organization committed to supporting children affected by a parent’s cancer. This is accomplished by providing summer camp, at no cost, to a community effected by cancer. With innovative ideas and full hearts student leaders are empowered to create programming to make this experience possible.

The Kesem family is special to me because it’s a group of people who make each other stronger - Kesem Camper

At UC Davis we are lucky to be a part of the largest Camp Kesem chapter in the nation. We provide camp for kindergarten through through high school age youth, servicing over 250 individuals between two, week long, sessions of sleep away camp. In these two weeks, our group of 100 counselors provide fun filled and heartfelt experiences for the campers.
All funds donated will go directly towards making this long lasting impact of positivity and support a reality.
