Summer Camp For Students That Have Been Affected By A Parent's Cancer

Greetings!  I’m writing on behalf of Camp Kesem at the University of Gerogia, which will offer two free summer camp programs for children affected by a parent’s cancer this coming summer from May 27 - June 3 and July 1 - July 8. Camps will be held at Camp Westminster in Conyers, GA. Camp is staffed and managed by student volunteers from the University of Georgia

Our camper application will open to the public this Sunday, January 15th, and we want to be sure that families have a chance to apply early before spots fill up.  To that end, I’ve included a copy of our one-page camp flyer here, which can be shared with families and with any colleagues who may also have families to refer.  All of our applications are available online, and the flyer includes basic instructions on how to sign up for camp.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please let me know!
