Love kids? Hate cancer? Join Camp Kesem Princeton!
CKP supports childrens through and beyond a caregiver's cancer; join here!

Camp Kesem Princeton is looking to recruit new members for the 2021-2022 year and we want you! Just fill out this interest form to join us! It’s that simple.

Who we are: Camp Kesem is a national organisation that works with children whose parents and guardians have been affected by cancer. We served over 10,000 children this summer through 131 chapters. We are the Princeton chapter and serve children in the NJ, NY, PA and DE area.

What we do: We support local children through and beyond a parent or guardian’s cancer diagnosis by providing them with a free, fun-filled summer camp every year, as well as by hosting events during the year. We also try to raise awareness of how cancer diagnoses can affect a family through our advocacy and collaborations with local businesses. 

When we do it: Camp usually happens for one week in August (we make sure it doesn’t clash with internships/OA/CA/other stuff). We host events and fundraise throughout the year to be able to pay for Camp - last year we raised $25,000 and had 50 kids at our virtual camp. This October 15-17 (the first weekend of Fall Break!) we will be having an in-person camp!

Who we want: Everyone is welcome! We have a few different positions with varying levels of commitment so you can still contribute without making a big commitment.

Look out for our Board applications in mid-September!

If you have any questions whatsoever, please contact Adelina Rolea (arolea@princeton.edu).

We’ll also be at this year’s Activities Fair, Monday September 6th 12-3pm at Dillon Gym + Courtyard, and we would love to meet you!
