    We are looking for OSU students who are interested in volunteering with children who have been affected by a parent's cancer. Camp Kesem is offered to our campers free of charge, and is an opportunity for them to have the freedom to just be a kid again, and spend some time away from home and the stress that comes with having a parent affected by cancer. Volunteers will attend one week of overnight camp, from 6/25 - 7/1 OR 7/2 - 7/8. Meals will be provided at camp, but volunteers are asked to put effort into raising $500 in support of Kesem, with extensive resources offered to help meet this goal. To apply, please visit the link provided or email osu.volunteer@kesem.org for more information.
