Each year we offer families a precious few days away together, full of fun and relaxation with all of their medical needs catered for.
A range of specially programmed activities are organised for both the children and the parents, from helicopter rides, private zoos and circus shows, to ‘dinner for two’ for parents only. All meals are strictly kosher and there is a doctor on site at all times.
As well as Camp Simcha staff, each child has a trained Big Brother or Sister volunteer taking care of them and ensuring that they have an unforgettable time while parents relax and recharge.
Retreat provides Camp Simcha parents with a rare opportunity to spend quality time with each other and their children, whilst meeting and speaking to other parents in similar situations to themselves.
This special weekend away organised for children with serious and life-changing medical conditions, gives them a chance to socialise with other children in similar circumstances, while providing much needed respite for their parents.
The children come without their parents for an exciting programme of activities, run over three days, catered to each child’s specific and complex needs. As well as a doctor on site, Big Brother and Sister volunteers join Camp Simcha staff and team of qualified carers to ensure the children have the most amazing time.
