Bingo helps camp for grieving children

By
From page A3 | February 07, 2013 |

Camp Kesem, a UC Davis student-run summer camp for children who have or have had a parent diagnosed with cancer, will benefit from the Davis Odd Fellows’ bingo games Sunday.

Doors at the Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. downtown, open at noon and bingo starts at 1 p.m. Snacks and beverages are available for purchase.

Cash prizes up to $250 and pull-tab instant winners up to $100 are available, along with raffle prizes for players.

All proceeds from the Odd Fellows’ second Sunday bingo games go to their selected charity partner. This month, it’s Camp Kesem, a free overnight camp that gives kids a chance to leave their worries at home.

UCD students who organize the camp want children whose parents have faced cancer to enjoy a community-based summer camp with peers facing similar challenges. Children whose parents have cancer often lack sufficient external support because they are neither physically ill nor visibly distinct from other children.

Their emotional needs often go unnoticed by teachers and peers, which can lead to isolation, low self-esteem, school difficulties, anxiety and depression, a news release says. It is often difficult for these young people to find peers with whom they can relate and they frequently lack the confidence and tools to cope with these tough challenges, the release adds.

Camp Kesem hopes to take 70 deserving campers for a fun-filled week this summer. The camp is available to children ages 6 to 16 regardless of race, religion or financial need; any child with a parent who has or had cancer may attend.

“The impact of Camp Kesem extends well beyond this one week in the summer,” the release says.
