The Nashville Oyster is proud to have Camp Kesem as its beneficiary.
Camp Kesem is a national nonprofit providing
free overnight summer camps for children ages 6 -16 with a parent who has or
has had cancer. Camp Kesem
provides a safe and supportive atmosphere, where children befriend peers who
can uniquely relate to their situation, and gain the strategies and confidence
needed to cope with their parent's illness or death.
Kesem's mission also serves the thousands of college student volunteers who
create every aspect of their Camp Kesem chapter while gaining valuable real
world leadership skills and developing their passion for making a difference in
the world. Camp Kesem is a 501(c)3 organization with over twelve years of growth
and success. There are currently 41 camps in 24 states - including a program at the Vanderbilt University.†
Our vision is to bring the life-changing benefits of Camp
Kesem to any family coping with cancer. To learn more about Camp Kesem visit their website.
