Our big sister/ little sister program was treated to a fun filled weekend in Monsey, NY. The girls began their extended weekend on Friday by enjoying the rides, arcades, and prizes at Sports Station. Upon their arrival in Monsey, the girls had a festive lunch, went swimming, and designed their own fleece blankets. After a fun Shabbos together, each girl returned home with a personalized towel, personalized Tehillim, and the fortitude to continue dealing with the illness of a sibling.
Many thanks to the Fischl family for hosting this festive weekend and to our wonderful volunteers for their time.
Talia’s Big Hair Beauty Day
Forty girls were treated to manicures, pedicures, hair styling, and t-shirt decorating in what was a day of fun and beauty at Tipperary Hair Styles. Each girl received a gift bag of beauty products and other goodies from Talia.
This day of beauty was sponsored by Talia Wohlberg who raised funds for this event as part of her Bat Mitzvah Project. Many thanks to Talia Wohlberg, her mother, Terry, and sister, Liza, who all helped out at the event. Heartfelt thanks to Debby Parker and her wonderful team of stylists, Brenda Walt & Monika Lightstone, to Catering By Brenda for donating a sumptuous lunch and smoothy bar, and to our fantastic team of volunteers.

Camp Simcha Boys Reunion 2011
EPIC IS THE WORD! As a very long and harsh winter appears to have finally ended, many of our Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha Special Boys trekked to Glen Spey for the most EPIC reunion weekend ever! Joined by a large conglomerate of Simcha Medical Staff who also came to relish a fine retreat, the EPIC reunion had reunifiers enjoying their favorite Camp attractions while spending time and catching up with their friends. Usual amusement included boating on the lake, the game room and of course, the canteen. The fun was supplemented by a special program which included 4×4 ATV rides; the inauguration of the Camp Simcha Greenhouse; a full day of EPIC Shabbat activities led by the legendary Duvi Becker (prizes of course) which involved an EPIC game of duck Duck Goose pitting the head staff against the medical staff; an EPIC Bar Mitzvah Kiddush and celebration (and 9 other birthdays); An ÜBER-EPIC groundbreaking Laser Light Show, Melave Malka Mayhem, BBQ style buffet and marshmallow roasting fire pit; AND a Lipa Concert which was truly EPIC. Everyone went home looking quite elegant sporting their souvenir collector’s item lapel pins.
Extra Special Thanks to Reuven Blobstein and Albert Balasiano for going the extra mile as usual.
Wishing you a happy, enjoyable, and meaningful Passover from the Camp Simcha Family!
