Kesem is a nationwide community, driven by passionate college student leaders, that supports children through and beyond their parent’s cancer. We are the only national organization dedicated to this unique population – supporting children with innovative, fun-filled programs that foster a lasting community.
Camp Kesem UCI is one of 72 active Camp Kesem chapters throughout the United States, staffed by student volunteers from UCI. As a national organization, Camp Kesem has over 15 years of experience bringing top quality programs that have a significant impact on children and families.
Our camp is offered free of charge, and is open to any 6-16 year old who has, or has had, a parent or primary caregiver with cancer. Our camps are designed to allow children the opportunity to find support, have fun, and feel safe, loved, and respected.
