Cancer-Stricken Families Feel the Love at Camp Kesem

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement
A local camp is making a big difference for children with sick parents.
Northern Arizona University college students are hard at work, planning for their fourth season of Camp Kesem. This nationwide community effort supports children throughout and beyond their parent’s cancer battle. It’s a lifesaver for families impacted by illness and struggling with bills, treatment and maintaining a normal routine for kids.
Students are busy organizing their plans for summer 2018, when they will host 50 campers for a fun-filled week of activities.

Student volunteers and counselors dedicate lots of time to this effort, as they undergo extensive training and leadership development before the campers arrive.

Camp Kesem is provided free of charge to all participating families, so private donations and community support are crucial to this endeavor.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
