The excitement and spirit of summer are back for kids with serious illnesses and disabilities as Camp Simcha Without Borders returns to Lakewood for an unforgettable third year.
Launched during the COVID-19 pandemic, Chai Lifeline developed Camp Simcha Without Borders to bring summer joy to sick children in communities across the country with specialized day camps.
The four-day camp sessions taking place on August 22-25 for 45 boys and August 28 through September 1 for 60 girls include thrilling activities and non-stop action, electrifying concerts, exciting trips and much more. The campers revel in the opportunity to just be kids and get a break from the medical challenges they face daily.
“My daughter was telling me how she loves going to camp because she feels so comfortable and normal and can just be herself,” one mother shared. “We are so thankful to Chai Lifeline for giving her these amazing opportunities to feel good about herself!”
“The energy, joy and inspiration of Camp Simcha Without Borders transform the campers,” said Rabbi Aharon Koslowitz, Chai Lifeline NJ/PA Director of Community Services. “We are so thankful to the dozens of volunteers who make this unforgettable experience a reality and give these kids the summer they deserve.”
