Camp Simcha campers and staff filled the heart of Times Square last Thursday where they stormed the bleachers for an inspirational “ Wall of Fame” musical performance under the bright lights of Broadway.
Wall of Fame is a Camp Simcha cover of Hall of Fame by The Script feat. will.i.am.
Each summer, 450 seriously ill children are treated to unforgettable, medically supervised overnight camp experiences at Camp Simcha, for children battling cancer and other hematological illnesses, and Camp Simcha Special, for children with debilitating chronic conditions.
At Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha Special, children and teens trade hospital rooms and doctors’ offices for fun, friendship, and hope for the future. Campers enjoy traditional camp activities in fully handicapped-accessible facilities. Talent shows, concerts, and helicopter, hot-air, and motorcycle rides make every day super-special.
Campers return home reinvigorated, with deep friendships and happy memories to help them travel the rough road ahead.
Since 1987, Chai Lifeline and its affiliates’ mission has been to restore the light of childhood to children whose innocence ended when life-threatening or lifelong illness was diagnosed.
Through programs that address the emotional, social, and financial needs of seriously ill children, their families, and communities, Chai Lifelinerestores normalcy to family life, and better enables families to withstand the crises and challenges of serious pediatric illness.
