Camp Kesem

The School of Continuing & Professional Studies, at Southern Utah University, is pleased to act as a charter for Camp Kesem. Camp Kesem is a camping program designed for children whose parents either suffer, or have suffered, from cancer.

The program launched summer 2012 and had nearly 30 campers. The SUU camp is mainly operated by SUU student volunteers, who open their hearts to our campers in inspiring ways.

The camp is primarily funded by donation. Please consider us, as the program requires over $40,000 per year to operate. Without world class volunteers, the amount would be much, much higher.

We would love to hear from you! If you have any questions, concerns, or would like more information on Camp Kesem please email us at
