Big Brothers/Sisters



Our volunteer programme is unique to Camp Simcha. Big Brothers and Sisters are, as they sound, a relationship for life for each child and their siblings.

“Fun Therapists”, our Big Brothers & Sisters visit the child regularly at home or in hospital. Still young themselves (normally 18 – 25 years), our volunteers are specially trained to make a difference when it will really count. They bring treats and take children on Camp Simcha events. Most importantly, they will make sure that each child feels special. Children facing difficult treatments or their brothers and sisters can benefit greatly from knowing that their Big Brother or Big Sister will be there for them.
