Camp Kesem is a nationwide community, driven by passionate college student leaders, supporting children through and beyond their parent's cancer. Since 2000, Camp Kesem has given children affected by a parent's cancer the opportunity to just be kids. The ever-expanding Kesem community engages in camp activities like sports, arts and crafts, and drama to give campers a fun-filled week. Campers also participate in "Cabin Chats" with fellow campers and counselors, giving children the chance to share their experiences with each other. There are plenty of laughs and lots of emotional support, but Camp Kesem does not provide therapy. The tremendous fun and support campers experience is what makes Camp Kesem a transformative, magical week for campers and counselors alike. Read more at http://campkesem.org/ . We're looking to bring this camp to USF to start its first year 2016-2017, with the first camp in the Summer of 2017. The application cycle to bring this camp to the university is open now and we are seeking student leaders dedicated and committed to expanding the university's community outreach. Students with strengths in Public Relations & Marketing, Camper Recruitment & Community Relations, Counselor Recruitment & Training, Development & Fundraising and Programming & Event Production are encouraged to email email@example.com for more information on how to get involved.
