Deborah 'Dirty Dan' Girma: My favorite Kesem memory is dancing it out after the talent show last year with one of our funniest campers - Lightning!
Trevor 'Skeeter' Davis: My favorite Kesem memory is getting to see how campers change throughout the week -- some come happy, some come nervous, but all leave with a huge community of support.
Katherine 'Kat' Schoeffler: I'm so excited to get to know my Exec Team better!
Ryan 'Rooster' Ard: My favorite Kesem memory what my cabin told me before leaving. Not because they were leaving but because of how many of them told me how much of an impact I had made on them at camp. That made the whole Kesem experience worth it for me.
Madelynn 'Tuffy' Williams: When Reeces Pieces sang "Godzilla" at the talent show for the 1000th time.
Hunter 'Prop' Geer: I’m looking forward to seeing all the bright smiles Kesem provides to everyone.
Wyatt 'Sherbert' Ballenger: I can't wait to see what we can accomplish at this year's Make the Magic! I'm hoping that it will be our greatest fundraising event to date.
Stacy 'Blossom' Frazer: It's impossible to pick just one Kesem memory, but I got to watch two of my campers last summer come out of their comfort zones and sing at the talent show! I could tell they were shy, but seeing them in their element made me smile.
chad 'lax' mcmurdo: I am looking forward to making magic and more Kesem memories with all of the strongest kids in the world. I am also excited to learn more professional skills that will help me throughout and after college!
Tiffany 'Nug' Doan: My favorite Kesem memories are always the middle part of the week where everyone starts to get comfortable with the camp, others, and themselves. Being able to witness people become the best version of themselves because of Kesem magic is incredible!
Lexie 'Starburst' Shepard: Last year was my first year as a counselor, and I absolutely loved getting to be a part of this amazing organization. This year, I am looking forward to working directly with the campers and their families to make Kesem the best it can be for them!
Julie 'Juju' Johnston: My favorite Kesem memory was playing mafia with my TLP girls.
Riker 'Chef' Olari: Fav Memory: The nights of sitting around listening to my campers talk amongst themselves.
Andrew 'Blue Steel' Brueggenjohann: I am looking forward to helping create a fun and happy environment for the campers that attend Camp Kesem.
Dana 'Danno' Antinozzi: Dance parties!!!
Thomas 'Ping Pong' Deppong: My favorite Kesem memory is singing camp songs and playing nine-square at Camp Kesem 2019!
Mitchell 'Karate Kid' Perry: My favorite Kesem memory and what I'm looking forward to this year is watching the quite, shy campers break out of their shells throughout the week and hearing campers at the end of the week talk about how they can't wait to come back next year.
