All proceeds go to sending kids whose parents have or have gone through cancer to camp.
Our Make the Magic Fundraising Gala is Camp Kesem’s biggest philanthropy dinner.
Make The Magic is a semi-formal event where guests will have the opportunity to interact with various members of our Camp Kesem community and enjoy an array of activities It is put on nationwide by every chapter in America and often raises anywhere between $5000-$50,000.
Camp Kesem is a nationwide non-profit organization, driven by passionate college student leaders, that supports children who have been touched by a parent’s cancer. We fundraise money throughout the year to be able to send these children to a week of summer camp free of charge. Camp Kesem has operated over 80 free summer camps in 38 states for children ages 6 to 16 who have been affected by their parent’s cancer. This camping experience has a lasting impact on these children by providing them with a peer- support network that understands their unique needs, builds confidence and strengthens their communication skills. Our Camp Kesem chapter at UC Santa Barbara was founded in 2014 and has since doubled in camper size, picking up support in and around Santa Barbara. Last year, we raised $40,000, welcoming 45 children to our camp. This year our goal is to send 50 kids to camp, and to do so we have set a fundraising goal of $50,000. Camp this year will take place from July 2nd to July 8thin the facility of Forest Home located in Ojai Valley, California. We look to continue to bring magic to the Santa Barbara region for years and years to come.
