Fall Friends + Family Day
Spring Friends + Family Day
2020 Event Details TBA
Nathan 'Stitch' Gedvilas: My favorite Kesem memory was messy games at my first camp. The campers covered me in so much stuff that the campsite owner made me wash off in the lake before using the showers because I was so messy.
Paul 'Papa Bear' Evers: This year, I'm looking forward to bringing campers together to be able to meet each other and make Kesem friendships that will last!
Johnna 'Poppy' Armstrong Watson: I am looking forward to making new memories with my Camp Kesem family, working for a good cause, and helping to make this camp a great experience for the kids!
Taylor 'Dr. Tea' Gammel: lI'm looking forward to working with all the great coordinators on out board this year because I believe we're going to do a lot of great work! Also, I'm excited to possibly be able to go to camp this year and spend time with the campers!
Emily 'Bubbles' Wilson: I'm looking forward to the camp! This will be my first year and I cannot wait to meet all the kids and get to know them!
Cameron 'Lambeau' Schumacher: My favorite Kesem memory is watching the campers come out of their shells throughout the week! Having a shy camper go from quiet and reserved on the first day to performing a song at the talent show is the BEST.
Nicholas 'Market' Albrecht: As I have not been a part of Kesem prior to this year, I am very much looking forward to making sure the camp is the best it can be and I'm very excited that I can be a part of it this year.
Reece 'RP' Wilmert: I am looking forward to helping provide an amazing time for these children and to provide an amazing time that they will never forget.
