Meet the Team

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!

Abigail 'Butterfly' Gargiulo: My favorite Kesem memory was Make the Magic last year!

Ayjah 'Smiley' Smith: My favorite Kesem memory was receiving my camp name. The process was cool, and it allowed me to interact more with members.

Kayleigh '' Needer: I am looking forward to fundraising and finding ways to raise money for camp this year.

Kylie 'Dumplin' Newman: This is the first year I am a part of Kesem. I am looking forward to making great memories and friends.

Olivia '' Tarpley: Looking forward to working with my fellow coordinators to put on an amazing week of camp!

Korin '' Norton: I have heard so much about the great work that Kesem does since my freshmen year, and now that I am a senior I am so excited to experience it hands on!

Jillian 'Walker' Cain: My favorite Kesem memory is getting covered in paint and shaving cream and slime during Messy Games- that was awesome!

Emerald 'Pineapple' Sanoguel: I look forward to making some really great memories and some
new experiences.

Lauren 'Lemon' Szalay: Having a camper use my talent show routine as her warm and fuzzy.

Joshua 'SpiderMan' Burns : My favorite Kesem memory comes from the Summer of 2018. Towards the end of the camp week we had our messy games event. Not only did the campers get messy, but the counselors were involved in the mess as well.

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!

Riley 'Brownie' Crisp: I am looking forward to camp this summer! Camp is super duper special to me, and I am excited to be able to give kids the experience of a lifetime.

Samaria 'Rebel' Williams: My favorite Kesem memory is the talent show at camp 2019!
