Camp Kesem is a student-run summer camp held at Indiana University for children who have or had a parent with cancer. The camp is free for all of its campers. Organizers say the camp's goal is to help the kids build self-esteem and get support from peers dealing with similar challenges.
The camp raises money throughout the year by holding fundraisers and accepting donations. Recently, they held a "Make the Magic" event in Evansville on November 9th where they had live music and speakers. Camp organizers say they hope to see more campers from southern Indiana.
