The Simcha Magic isn’t over till it’s over, folks, and even then it goes on and on! Even as campers trickle out of the grounds, picked up by buses or family, everyone continues to bond until the very last second. Campers wait in groups, hugging tightly and sharing some more precious time together. Parents who come to pick up their campers find them wearing the biggest smiles of the year, looking brighter and better than ever after the best Simcha Special session ever! The campers couldn’t wait to show their families their workshop creations and introduce them to all their friends.
As we walk through the steadily quieting grounds, the atmosphere retains its uplifting feeling. Groups of friends spontaneously burst out in song and laughter; counselors stand by the gate waving until their campers are well out of sight. There’s not a moment of fun to waste on the last morning in Camp Simcha.
