体育在线365Camp Kesem FSU’s 2020 camper applications open Tuesday,  Jan. 21, to attend a free week of summer camp. 

体育在线365Camp Kesem FSU is a nonprofit that supports children through and beyond a parent’s cancer. The chapter is run by passionate student leaders who plan/host camp, recruit campers and volunteers, and fundraise year-round.

体育在线365During one week in the summer, Camp Kesem FSU hosts a free week of summer camp for children, ages 6-18, in the Tallahassee and surrounding communities that have, or have had, a parent/guardian with cancer. Donations from generous donors are essential to Camp Kesem FSU, as the week of camp is 100% for our campers.

For the eighth consecutive year, Camp Kesem at Florida State University is also hosting the Make the Magic Gala on Feb. 15. This is the biggest fundraising event of the year for Camp Kesem. Tickets include a plated dinner, dessert, drink ticket, silent auction, paddle raise, and firsthand stories from camper families.

There are over 5 million children impacted by a parent’s cancer. Camp Kesem is the largest organization that caters to this unique population. To many children, their Camp Kesem experience is life-changing. Camp Kesem is a safe escape for children who have been impacted by their parent’s cancer. 

体育在线365Support is provided to these children, not only for the one week of camp, but year-round through our camper support program called “Keeping Up With Karl.” This program allows the counselors at Camp Kesem FSU to be aware of birthdays, soccer games, or any other important events our campers might want to encouragement or love for. We want to be able to spread the Kesem magic to as many children we can.

Applications open on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2020. The Summer camp session begins Sunday, July 26, - Saturday, Aug. 1, 2020. The camp is at Warren Willis Camp, 4990 Picciola Road, Fruitland Park, FL 34731.
