1 2,108 children experienced life- changing Camp Kesem “magic” this summer, an increase of over 40% in just one year. Founded at Stanford University in 2000, Camp Kesem has grown considerably, and currently operates 41 active chapters on colleges across the country. Camp Kesem has a big goal: To serve every child affected by a parent’s cancer. “I am not sure the full impact of the (Camp Kesem) experience can be gauged… The confidence and strength, and sheer comfort in being himself has been obvious, but I have a feeling there is more under the surface. Even just the opportunity to go and be a kid – not someone’s caregiver, child, brother or anything else - has made a difference. For one blissful week he was just himself, living life, instead of existing in it.” – Camp Kesem parent We are just getting started. Today, it is estimated that nearly 3 million children have a parent living with cancer. And many more have lost a parent to cancer. With your help, we CAN serve any child affected by a parent’s cancer. Annual Report, FY 2012

2 What happens when children affected by a parent’s cancer are with others who can truly understand them? MAGIC.. After Camp Kesem, parents report their children are more comfortable expressing their feelings, more connected to other children, more confident about handling challenges, and feel better about themselves. Thank you so much for the opportunity to support Camp Kesem. My four children lost their father in 2010 to cancer. We have worked hard to live well since our loss and rebuild a sense of normalcy. We have done counseling, support groups, kept lines of communication open, and have a wonderful support network of fabulous family and friends; however, out of all the consistent work we have done to grieve appropriately the children made more progress and seem more well adjusted after five days at Camp Kesem than all the other work combined in two years! They came away with hope and were so encouraged. As a mom of grieving children I am so incredibly grateful. We look forward to reunions and camp next year. Your staff and program are top notch -- beyond our wildest expectations. Thank you! - Camp Kesem parent 98% of parents believe that Camp Kesem had a positive impact on their family 99% of families would recommend Camp Kesem to other families affected by cancer. Annual Report, FY 2012

3 This summer, 1,300 college students across the country changed lives... Including their own. Camp Kesem student leaders work year-round to deliver the Kesem experience for children affected by a parent’s cancer. They are tasked with recruiting and training volunteers, finding families in need, raising the funds necessary for camp, and creating a “magical” week of programming. Along the way, our Kesem student leaders develop incredible leadership skills. Over 95% of our participants report that Camp Kesem helped them develop initiative taking, teamwork, problem solving, accountability and time management skills. 89% of Kesem students intend to continue philanthropic work after college. “There is no greater feeling than to have a child call you their hero when actually, they are yours.” - Camp Kesem Student Leader “Camp Kesem isn’t the best thing I did in college, it’s the best thing I’ve done in my life so far. Having the opportunity to be around these happy, wonderful kids, even when they’re going through what they’re going through, puts everything else into perspective. Camp Kesem definitely made me into the person I am today, and made me a better person.” - Camp Kesem Student Leader Annual Report, FY 2012

4 Camp Kesem has demonstrated an efficient and scalable funding model. Camp Kesem has demonstrated that our fundraising capacity can scale with our growth. Total funds raised are up over 122% in just two years. Camp Kesem’s large volunteer base, and extremely low overhead costs, allow Camp Kesem to direct 81% of funds to programming.. Camp Kesem has a very unique funding model with huge potential to scale. After an initial seed investment of only $30,000 from Camp Kesem National, each college chapter is self-sustaining, and raises the funds necessary for camp from their communities and grass-roots efforts. This model will help us meet the demand from over 40 interested colleges (currently on our waitlist). Help us bring a Camp Kesem chapter to every community!
