Providing friendship, understanding, education and support for kids and teens who have a parent with cancer or have lost a parent with cancer.
Kids Konnected was developed on the premise that when a parent gets cancer, the entire family is affected and the needs of the children must be addressed. Our programs started in California and soon spread nationwide. The mission of Kids Konnected is to provide friendship, understanding, education and support for kids and teens who have a parent with cancer or have lost a parent with cancer.
Our Friends at Camp Kesem
Here is another chance for your child to attend Camp this summer! Camp Kesem is available to children in the area between the ages of 6-16 who have or have had a parent with cancer. Camp Kesem at UCI is a secular camp and is open to all children regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, or financial status. Due to the financial burden experienced by families coping with cancer, Camp Kesem is provided free of charge to the families it serves. If you have any questions about the enrollment process, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
