Megan 'Bubbles ' Crowley: This year, I am looking forward to watching the growth of Camp Kesem at UNC-Greensboro. It has been an honor watching us go from our first to our second year, and now I'm ready for the third! I especially can't wait to meet all of our new campers.
Kamone 'Sharkbait' Hyman: This year I am looking forward my last year of making magic happen at Camp Kesem at UNC-Greensboro as a director and another successful year! I am extremely excited to see our chapter continue to grow and welcome more people into our kesem family!

Hayley 'Flare' Robertson: My favorite Kesem memory is seeing the campers reunite with their friends on the first day of camp the next year. It is amazing to see that their bonds and sense of community lasts the entire year until camp the next summer!
