Camp Kesem GW seeks student leaders to help families coping with cancer

9 Sep

Camp Kesem

Camp Kesem GW, a non-profit summer camp for children whose parents have (or had) cancer, is currently seeking student leaders at GW to join its Executive Board and help with camp-related events. CKGW is one of 22 Camp Kesem branches around the country and it is entirely run by college students at GW, who fundraise for camp, plan camp, find families for camp, and are counselors at camp. The mission of Camp Kesem GW is to provide a week of stress-free fun to local kids while giving students leadership experience.

If you are interested in helping out with Camp Kesem, please email us at

We are also accepting Executive Board applications until Sept 10th at midnight — we encourage everyone who likes kids, wants non-profit experience, or just doesn’t like cancer to apply. We have ten open positions in the following areas: Fundraising, Public Relations, Camper Care, Student Support, and Camp Programming.

Applications and position descriptions are available on our website at We especially want students with summer camp experience, fundraising or non-profit experience, and graphic and web design experience.

Even if you’re not sure about the responsibilities and time commitment of camp, we hope you’ll submit an EBoard application so we can learn a little more about you. At this time, we are only accepting EBoard applications — stay tuned for our General Body Meeting in mid-October for information on becoming a camp counselor.

Deadline: September 10th, 2010 (Midnight)
