Maddie '' Wu: My favorite Kesem memory has been seeing the impact that Kesem has on our kids. It truly is an amazing community, and I feel so grateful to be a part of it.
Nasir 'Coco' Ismael: I have loved my last two years of Kesem, they have been the best weeks of my life. My favourite moments include painting ourselves for colour wars, watching our talent shows and seeing how amazing our kids are and doing the Macarena with my kids!
Anthony 'Cubby' Chen: Before bedtime I would create a choose your own adventure story for the campers and it was always so nice to see them debate their options and choose. I'm so excited to see them again!
Jena 'Jell-O' Yun: I'm looking forward to getting to know the ropes of Camp Kesem and meeting all the campers!
Jenna 'Athena' Shaw: I'm excited (but also sad) for my last year with the kids at my chapter of Camp Kesem.
Rachel 'Abu' Kulchar: I'm excited to meet campers and make memories :)
Alison 'Sunshine' Chang: Swimming in the lake
Cecilia 'Smilez' Kim: This is my first year being part of Kesem, so I am looking forward to meeting my Kesem family, including campers, volunteers, and counselors! I am so excited to make many wonderful memories and learn from everyone during this year and at camp!
Krystal 'Star' Cohen: See previous submission
Jack 'Biscuit' Allen: See Ops Entry
Adelina 'Zelda' Rolea: My favorite Kesem memory would be teaching my campers how to play M.A.S.H. (my favorite game in middle school when I was their age!) and learning how to make friendship bracelets for the first time from them!
Sowon 'Crush' Lee: I am looking forward to creating a safe space where kids feel welcome to share their individual experiences with each other. I can't wait to see all the bonds that are formed.
Allen 'Maui' Kong: Getting slapped on the face with a pancake during breakfast!
