Camp Kesem’s Make the Magic
Camp Kesem at FSU is hosting our first ever Make the Magic! We are a non-profit organization dedicated to helping kids whose parents have cancer feel like kids again.
Make the Magic is a dinner and silent auction that will include guest speakers sharing stories about their Camp Kesem experience. We will have a catered “Fancy Camp” dinner for each ticket holder to bring out everyone’s inner camper. Following dinner, we will open our silent auction with donations from local businesses such as Mohawks and Moccasins, Trader Joe’s and That’s Mine! Monogramming.
Please join us for our inaugural dinner and silent auction! All proceeds will go to sending a child whose parent has cancer to a free week of summer camp. There will be fancy camp food, sweet tea and lemonade, and baskets of goodies to bid on.
The event will be held at Miller Hall in University Center C at the Doak Campbell Stadium on the Florida State University campus. The event will take place on February 28, 2014. Doors open at 7 PM.
Learn More About Camp Kesem
There are over 3 million kids affected by a parent’s cancer. But, because they don’t appear sick, their needs are often not addressed – and they suffer quietly, which can have long-lasting effects. Camp Kesem is the only national organization supporting their unique needs. We create a peer support network for these kids which has life-long impact.
Camp Kesem at FSU provides a FREE week of summer camp to kids ages 6-16 who have a parent affected by cancer. Summer 2014 will be our third summer! Last year, we had 20 campers and we all had the time of our lives! This year we have enough spots for 40 campers! We are counting down the days until this years camp! Our students run, plan, fundraise, and recruit campers for camp.
Join us for our third camp from August 3-8, 2014. It is going to be held in Orange Springs, FL at Girl Scout Camp Kateri, about two and a half hours from FSU. Transportation will be provided from the university. Click around our site for more information or to apply!
