DeKALB – Camp Kesem at Northern Illinois University, an event which provides a week of camp for children affected by their parents’ cancer, is still accepting online applications for its free summer camp session.
Ria Sangsomwong, chapter director of Camp Kesem at NIU, had said 11 campers applied and were accepted this year. Although the goal is to serve kids in the DeKalb-Sycamore area and the western Chicago suburbs, potential campers can be from anywhere, she said.
Camp Kesem at NIU is operated by around 20 student volunteers and serves 22 campers ages 6 to 18 each year.
