Camp Kesem

Kesem is committed to creating a world where every child who has a parent with a cancer diagnosis or has lost a parent to cancer is never alone. We support these children through and beyond their parent’s cancer with free, fun-filled creative programs and a lasting community.

This grant from TCRF will fund Camp Kesem, free summer camps for children who have been impacted by a parent’s cancer. The transformative Kesem experience helps address the often common and significant effects the child may face, including isolation from peers, negative academic performance, loss of social interest, and taking on adult responsibilities at home. Kesem is a life-changing experience resulting in improved self-esteem, enhanced coping skills, increased self-confidence, and stronger emotional intelligence.
