Camp Kesem - University of Illinois


Camp Kesem provides a safe, supportive and exciting camp experience for children who have a parent who has, had, or passed away from cancer. Campers have the opportunity to build friendships with peers facing similar challenges. Children who have or had a parent with cancer are neither physically ill nor visibly distinct from other children. As a result, their situation at home is often unknown to peers and teachers and their emotional needs often go unnoticed. In addition, it is challenging for these children to find peers with whom they can relate, and they are often left feeling completely alone when coping with the fear, anger, guilt, and sadness associated with having a parent who has cancer or has died from cancer. Children at Camp Kesem can understand what their fellow campers are going through. Many children at Camp Kesem programs develop friendships with peers to whom they can truly relate for the first time in their lives.
