Warm memories still linger from our awesome Chol Hamoed Family Day at Bridgewater Sports Arena! Our NJ/PA families skated in the NHL-sized rinks, climbed the soft play and had a blast in the laser tag den! Thank you to the devoted volunteers who are always there to make sure everything runs smoothly!

Here's to the Lumberland and Highland Lakes Volunteer Fire Departments, our Sunday Superheroes. Actually, they (and all fire fighters) are our superheroes every day of the week.

This week, more than 40 members of @lumberlandfd.glenspey and Highland Lakes Fire Department conducted advanced training at Camp Simcha. They staged a smokey situation, then entered our bunks to search for people (or in this case, mannequins) and practice window escapes. We were delighted to be able to host the group.

Thanks to @lumberlandfd.glenspey for keeping us safe. Special thanks to Chief Donald "Bosco" Hunt, assistant chiefs Eric Robles and Jay Steimel, president Ann Steimel, and to Chief Richard McKean of the Highland Lakes Fire Department.

Hats off to Peter Abramov and @ladiesandgentsbar. No, really, hats off, because that’s the only way to see the wonderful color and styling creations at this full service salon. When Peter heard that a Camp Simcha warrior was scheduled to begin treatment soon – and that she really wanted to color her hair before it fell out – he jumped right in. He treated our camper to the full treatment: beautiful hair, manicure, and a glowing smile from ear to ear. The chance to help immediately resonated with Peter, the father of a former Camp Simcha camper. “I want to give back and bring smiles to every camper from Camp Simcha who needs this lift, because I know what it’s like to be in that situation.” Thank you Peter and good luck to MT as she starts treatment.

Say hello to Chai Lifeline Mid-Atlantic's Birthday Bunch from Krieger Schechter Day School! This insane bunch of seventh grade girls host our Chai Lifeline kids and sibs for a monthly birthday party, making sure that pediatric illness does not stand in the way of a child's birthday celebration. Can there be anything more special than that?! @ksdslions

Pre-Pesach Camp Day with Chai is back!! We know you need time to get your errands done, so we held our annual Sunday Funday to keep the kiddos busy and the parents busier at home ;) There were so many activities to choose from: colouring, kitchen, and Play-dough centers! We made our very own Pesach themed memory game which was super fun and read Pesach themed stories! AND we took advantage of the great weather and played some ball games and did chalk on the walk outside!! #fightingillnesswithlove #happinessheals #sundayfunday #pesach

Chai Lifeline Mid-Atlantic’s monthly Lazy Sunday program is in full swing! Each month, Chai Lifeline volunteers host an early Sunday morning activity, allowing our parents a chance to start the week with a lazy quiet Sunday while their kids are off having fun!

We all have superheroes in our lives. They don’t all wear costumes, and none reside on the pages of comics or graphic novels. But they are heroes nonetheless.

Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference no matter your age or background. The Chai Lifeline Toy Drive isn't just for the holiday season; toys are given out daily to sick kids!

Meet Shawndra Spiro, who in honour of her Bat Mitzvah, wanted to give back to an organization that has touched her heart. Along with her friend Rae Goldman, they spearheaded a school Toy Drive at Thornhill Public School {TPS}. With the support of her mom Rachel and her amazing Principal Mr. Scott Richards, the 2 girls worked tirelessly to encourage kids to donate to sick kids. Each child who donated a toy received a special prize from Chai Lifeline and the class that collected the most toys won a Pizza Lunch. Thanks to everyone at TPS for all your hard work! MAZEL TOV SHAWNDRA!!!! #fightingillnesswithlove #happinessheals #BatMitzvah #toydrive #pizzaparty

Another Chai Lifeline Insurance Support Service success! After being turned down for months by their insurance company, Chai Lifeline helped Peri’s parents secure a hospital bed for the teen, who is living with a muscular dystrophy. “We never thought that this much needed hospital bed would get approved. Thank you both from the bottom of our hearts. Aron and Zissy worked miracles for us,” her mom said.


I-Shine Shabbaton at Camp Simcha

175 children, members of the elite I-Shine program from Williamsburg, Boro Park, Monsey, Skvere, and Monroe divisions, enjoyed a beautiful shabbaton at Camp Simcha.

The weekend began with SnowTubing at Mountain Creek, and then the boys were off to camp.

This was a wonderful Shabbos of achdus and camaraderie, where all the children had tons of fun through a full program by the I-Shine Head counselor and coordinators . They played, and ate delicious Shabbos meals. More importantly, the children got to express their emotions within the safety of many others experiencing similar challenges to their own.
A special shout out to Mayer and Rivky Fischl, for helping make this shabbaton happen.

Thank you to the scores of Achim B'Yachad volunteers, I-Shine Head counselor - Volvie Zeig, I-Shine coordinators - Effy Oberlander, Yanky Hirsch and Zevy Weber, who made this shabbaton the best ever!
Food makes the mood. Thanks to Lazer Friedman for the delicious meals.

Special thanks to Camp Director, Nachman Maimon for the great accommodations throughout the weekend and all year round .
