Perla 'Snicks' Barajas: I loved camp 2019!! It was my first time attending camp and I enjoyed every second of it. I loved being in the mountains with wonderful children who had fun and created everlasting bonds with each other.
Melissa "Straw-B" Dzinoreva: Our last family friend and family day. I really enjoyed meeting the campers. I am looking forward to organizing more events that involve community engagement
Jason 'Fish' Lu: Meeting a camper named "Blue" and asking him why he chose Blue as his name. I thought it was becasue his favorite color was blue. But actually it was because of the dinosaur in Jurassic World
Audrey 'Dory' Connell: I'm looking forward to seeing the campers at Friends and Family day and connecting with them and their families again!
Sabrina 'Jellybean' Wu: Human Mario Kart at camp :) It was chaotic and so fun.
Miriam 'Jellyfish' Hauer-Jensen: My favorite Kesem memory is spring Friends and Family Day last year when we made friendship bracelets with the campers and played sharks and minnows.
Mikayla 'Mickey' Chang: This year I am looking forward to getting to bond with the campers and camper families further before camp during events like Friends and Family Day!
Andrew 'Taco' Choi: HIGHLY looking forward to this year's camp! I am so excited to meet new and returning campers and create new and FUN memories!!
Mira 'Mochi' Yoo: My favorite Kesem Memory was during the Fall Friends and Family Day. I got to meet most of the campers and learned how to make friendship bracelets with one of them.
