Camp Kesem is a nationwide community, driven by passionate college student leaders, that supports children through and beyond their parent's cancer.

We serve children who have lost a parent to cancer, have a parent undergoing cancer treatment, or whose parent is a cancer survivor – an estimated population of over 5 million children in the United States. Camp Kesem runs over 100 weeks of fun, action-packed and 100% free-of-charge camps from coast-to-coast every summer. Serving children ages 6 to 18, our campers experience a warm and loving environment with other children who have similar life experiences. This community provides the foundation for confidence building, improved communication skills, enhanced life outlook and attitude.

Not currently active at UCSC.

camp-krem-camping-unlimited-logoWe happily serve individuals with an extremely wide range of developmental and intellectual disabilities, including campers with Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, Williams Syndrome, Prader-Willi Syndrome, Angelman Syndrome, Fragile-X, Tourette Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, vision and hearing impairment etc.
We welcome children aged 5 years and older, and adults of any age. There is no upper age limit.

We are sad to report that we are not currently running in-person programs, due to the wildfire damage that Camp Krem sustained.

In the meantime, we are offering Virtual Camp programs, to provide our campers with fun and engagement while we cannot gather in person! To see our Virtual Camp schedule, click here.

Please stay tuned for more information about Summer Camp at our new property, Camp Krem Pacifica, in Ahwahnee.

We will continue to rebuild. We have no intention of abandoning the rebuild in Boulder Creek, and will continue to work hard to get it back up and running. We have acknowledged that this rebuild could take years, and there is a long road ahead. We do not want our campers and their families to have to wait that long, so this new Camp in Ahwahnee has come at a perfect time.

The future for our organization looks bright, as this means that someday, we may have two programs operating simultaneously.
