Davis '' Caron-Vera: I am looking forward to showing the new counselors and campers kesem magic . Last year was my first year as a counselor and I left feeling the best I have ever felt . I can't wait to watch other people feel the magic.
Alma 'Storm' Aguila: During cabin chat one night, a camper named me as her hero because I brought her to Kesem. This always stuck with me and continues to be the moment that drives me always.
Patricia 'Rogi' Walczuk: I am looking forward to meeting all the kiddos and organizing an amazing camp they'll remember forever!

Kat 'Hopkins' Webb: My favorite Kesem memory was seeing all of the Kids loosen up and just be their amazing, goofy, selves as we thre them a Karoke Dance Party at a "self designed" club. Seeing some of that necessary attention to detail come alive was really incredible.
