Meet the Team

Brooke 'S'moores' Moore: One of my favorite Kesem memories was when we made cardboard cars for our drive in movie. The kids got so creative and had a blast doing it! I loved seeing them be so creative and excited to share their designs with others!

Sage "Lil' Llama" Mata: My favorite thing about Camp Kesem is the change I see in the counselors and in the kids. I love watching the bonds that are made between a 7 year old and his new 20 year old best friend. Kesem friendships are for life!

Devyn 'Rosie' Rosenberg: I am looking forward to getting the opportunity to support the campers all year long and getting to have fun for a week at camp! I am excited to meet each family and build relationships with them.

Sophia 'Pretzel' Pullan: I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at camp and know that all our hard work through the year is going to something so amazing!

Tresha 'Tiny' Ayag: I look forward to opening up my opportunities and branch out from my shell to be a more confident individual. I also look forward to making new friends and build my networking circle.

Cutler 'Scissors' Cowdin : This is my first year in Camp Kesem and what I'm looking forward to most is the camp in the summer. From what I've heard, its the best part of the year.

Conner 'Airhead' Eyre: When I was with the TLP's we had a very small group of 2. There was a very shy girl who did not talk very much. WE played a game called 9-square and she was the queen almost overtime because she was so good, after that she started yelling and chattin

Brekel 'Bumble' Draper: My favorite Kesem Memory is playing 9-square at camp with all the little kids and seeing their smiling faces when I helped them play.

Kylee 'Muffin' Drury: I'm really looking forward to meeting the kids that are involved in
Camp Kesem. It's been nice to do all the volunteer tasks but actually seeing the kids is worth it.

Yolena 'Yoyo ' Carlon : making friendship bracelets with the campers

Amanda 'Panda' Perry: I'm looking forward to getting to know all of the wonderful people involved in the Camp Kesem program!

Bailee 'Reed' Gubler: My favorite Camp Kesem memory was attending when I was 10 years ago. I remember even though I was sick, the counselors and other kids still made my time there really fun!

Mckenna 'wake' Carlson: Definitely 9-square at camp this last summer!! SO MUCH FUN! Definitely looking forward to it this summer also.

Paige 'Scout' Stout: Looking for camp to be awesome

Antonio 'Big Cheese' Rubio: Working with the children. Through providing love, honesty and companionship for them. Aiding in creating life long memories. Along with building new friendships to grow with throughout the years. To bring a warm smile to those I am around.

Cameron 'Maui' Gali: Some of my favorite times from last year were during downtime, when all of the counselors and the campers were just hanging out, laughing, telling stories, and just having a good time. Being with the kids is what I am looking forward to next year.
