Camp Kesem Available to Kids Affected by Parents' Cancer
Hello from Camp Kesem. We just wanted to reach out and let you know that camper applications are now open for Camp Kesem at Saint Louis University. This year, camp will be at Camp Manitowa in Benton, IL from July 22nd-28th. We would love to be an extra resource for those you work with, so let us know how we can best help you in recruiting campers.
A little bit about us:Camp Kesem is a national non-profit organization that provides a one-week summer camp, completely free to families, for children ages 6-16 who have been affected by a parent's cancer. We have kids all across the board: some have lost a parent, some parents are currently in treatment, and others are in remission. It's a week of fun for the kids, just to get away from the stress of home and meet kids who can relate to their situation. We also do year-round programming to provide support to our families even when they're not at camp.
Feel free to forward our application and flyer on to any potential families or contacts who may know of families who could benefit from Camp Kesem. Please also feel free to send us the contact information for families we can personally reach out to. Our camper goal is 125, and we have about 40 more spots left to fill. Linked below is a document that outlines directions for our new camper applications that can be found at kesem.force.com.
We are working to get a pdf brochure out to you. If you would like hard copy brochures, please let us know if those would be helpful and let us know how many you would like. Thank you so much for continually supporting Camp Kesem. As always, please reach out if you have any questions!!
