Camp Kesem Princeton

Camp Kesem Princeton is a chapter of Camp Kesem National that provides free camp for kids who have a parent affected by cancer. The camp is organized by a group of Princeton students throughout the school year who decide the logistics and fundraise in an effort to make camp free for every child regardless of need. We seek to foster an environment in which our campers feel hope and encourage the fact that it is okay to focus on just being a kid.
