  1. It's hard work to make magic happen, but it's worth the long nights.

    I worked at Camp Kesem as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing staff from the ground up. Scott Arizala is one of the most inspirational people I have worked with
    Fun - if it was a paying job I would do it for the rest of my life.
    Great skill development - Camp Kesem taught me more about organizational development and staff management than any other experience thus far.

    Cons

    Long hours
    Stressful - it's 51 weeks of fundraising and planning for 1 week of magic
    Since students are working for experience and not pay - it can be difficult keeping a large staff involved and motivated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Creating a network for campuses to bounce ideas off of each other.

    I worked at Camp Kesem

    Pros

    The chance to make a difference in the lives of families coping with cancer while interacting with your best friends on campus is not something that should be passed up.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is difficult to balance friendships with work. Additionally, it is occasionally tricky to understand the relationship with nationals juxtaposed with the relationship with every campus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Include the student leaders more in big-picture decisions. Work hard to understand each campus individually (perhaps visit or serve as advisors to individual campuses).
