Camp Simcha exists in order to improve the quality of life for any Jewish family in the UK that has a child with a life threatening illness. As well as all kinds of paediatric cancers, we help when a child has a wide range of genetic and degenerative conditions such as muscular dystrophy and dysautonomia, heart conditions and serious conditions in babies and children, for example.
We provide parents with support 24/7 throughout the year and powerful positive experiences for all children in the family, including siblings. We provide hospital transport, specialist respite care, parties and outings, family and children’s retreats and special home based therapeutic activities.
We currently support over 600 children and parents in London, Manchester, Glasgow and Gateshead, and our services are available in Leeds, Birmingham and Liverpool. All Camp Simcha’s services are provided free of charge to families from all sectors of the Jewish community.
