Camp Kesem

Faculty Advisors: Dr. Elise Radina

Camp Kesem is a national non-profit, student-run summer camp that serves children ages 6-18 whose parent or guardian current has been impacted by cancer. The chapter of Camp Kesem at Miami University gathers eager college students who are interested in giving back to these children who have gone through rough times at such young ages. This summer camp exists to serve a portion of the cancer community that often goes unnoticed. It allows the young campers to gain emotional support and build self-esteem from peers who are undergoing similar hardships. The purpose of this camp is to build a supportive network of friendships within Camp Kesem at Miami and the surrounding communities for families coping with cancer.
