Summer Experiences

Our summer experiences create ever-lasting memories for the Camp Simcha children

Our Keshet summer day scheme exists to make school holidays easier for our families and ensure their children do not miss out on the summer fun and excitement which their peers can enjoy.

Keshet Summer Day Scheme

Each day at Keshet has a different theme and main activity, from arts and crafts to days out at a theme park or zoo.

Our trained Big Brother and Sister volunteers on Keshet join staff to ensure that all the children are cared for and are having the best time possible. We also have a nurse present who looks after the children’s medical needs.

If you are interested in volunteering at Keshet please contact get in touch.

Camp USA

Some of our children get the opportunity to attend a trip of a lifetime for two weeks to Camp Simcha in the Catskill Mountains USA. The purpose-built campus has a fully-equipped hospital on site, staffed by senior specialists, doctors and nurses.

Each child travels with their own English Big Brother or Sister volunteer who will be with them 24/7 throughout the trip. In addition, every group of children is accompanied on the journey by a Camp Simcha nurse.

Children return from camp with great strength and the self-belief that comes from being in an environment where everybody has similar challenges, often supporting each other in overcoming some of these.

Participation in this year’s Camp USA has been made possible by a generous donation in loving memory of Caroline Weston z’’l.

May her memory be a blessing.
