One of our wonderful Yoga District instructors Kendall is a founding member of the William & Mary chapter of Camp Kesem.
Camp Kesem is a national organization that offers a free week-long summer camp to support children through and beyond a parent’s cancer.
Kendall is donating all of the proceeds from her November Yoga District classes to kick-off Camp Kesem’s fundraising season.
Read below for Kendall’s class schedule and why she is so dedicated to Camp Kesem.
YOGA FOR CAMP KESEM WILLIAM & MARY
During the month of November, the proceeds from all of my classes at Yoga District will be donated to Camp Kesem William & Mary.
Camp Kesem is a nationwide community, driven by passionate college student leaders, that supports children through and beyond their parent’s cancer. Camp Kesem operates over 105 free summer camps in 40 states for children, ages 6 to 16, who have been affected by a parent’s cancer. This camp experience has a lasting impact on the participating children by providing them a peer-support network that understands their unique needs, builds confidence, and strengthens their communication skills. Camp Kesem aims to ensure that every child impacted by a parent’s cancer is never alone by offering innovative and fun-filled programs that foster a lasting community.
During my time in college, I helped to direct and grow Camp Kesem at William & Mary from a camp that assisted 32 children in its first year to one that supported 102 this past summer. I can truly say that Camp Kesem changed my life through introducing me to strong inspiring kids, along with truly genuine and caring counselors.
This summer, Camp Kesem William & Mary has set a goal of raising $85,000 in order to send 125 kids to this life-changing camp. By coming to any of my classes at Yoga District during the month of November, you are directly helping to make this happen. For more information about Camp Kesem, you can visit their website here.
