Welcome Our Advisory Board!

We'd like to welcome Comet as our first advisory board member! You may remember Comet from camp since she was part of our professional staff! We're super excited to have her continue to be a part of Camp Kesem at the Claremont Colleges.

We've fundraised $810 so far!

Thanks to the individual donations and coord board planned events around the Claremont Colleges, we've almost raised $1,000! But we need a lot more help on our way to $30,000 before camp in August 2017.

Claremont Chapter at Summit!

We sent Carebear, Pogo, and Stitch to Camp Kesem National's annual summit! Here's what they had to say afterwards:

We did a lot of leadership workshops to help us learn how to make camp more successful and it'll definitely help because it gave us a lot of ideas on where to improve and how we can better support the team. - Stitch
