Help Make the Magic at Camp Kesem

Camp Kesem Stony Brook is run by student volunteers and serves campers ages 6 to 16.

In Spring 2013, a group of Stony Brook University student leaders applied for a $10,000 LIVESTRONG grant and a bid for a Camp Kesem charter. Camp Kesem has a direct and focused vision — to ensure that every child touched by a parent’s cancer is never alone. Stony Brook was selected through a national online voting competition as earning the most votes for schools in the northeast region.

Camp Kesem at Stony Brook University was founded in 2013 and supports children in the Long Island community by providing a week-long summer camp experience and year-long peer support. In just three short years, Stony Brook Camp Kesem has served more than 200 campers in ages 6 to 16 and raised $200,000 to operate the camp free of charge.

Stony Brook Camp Kesem will host its Make the Magic Annual Charity Dinner on Friday, March 31, at the Hilton Garden Inn Stony Brook from 7 pm to 10 pm.
