The Camp Kesem Caterpillar
Don’t worry, this colorful caterpillar is a welcome summer bug!
Camp Kesem operates free summer camps for children who have been touched by a parent’s cancer. Led by college students, there are camps all over the country, including at The University of Texas at Austin.
For many children, their Camp Kesem experience is a life-changing event – providing them a community of children with similar experiences, and a safe and welcoming environment to have fun and rediscover their childhood.
If that sounds similar to Wonders & Worries’ groups, you’re right! We both support children reaching their full potential, despite a parent’s illness.
In fact, Wonders & Worries’ staff serve in a professional capacity at UT’s Camp Kesem. From inviting families to training camp counselors, singing silly songs and sharing professional expertise, Wonders & Worries recognizes the value of the camp in helping children thrive.
This year Wonders & Worries is again proud to donate staff to the cause. Look for Michele “Poppins” Martin, Kim “Carrot Top” Fryar and Corinne ”Mudbug” Barnickel.Back to News
