Our last Shabbat in Camp Simcha Special was incredible. Some of our campers spoke at the meals, and inspired everyone. There was a hilarious Shabbat play performed by the campers followed by bingo. A magician came and did cool tricks and mind reading on the campers. We ended the day with a choir, and an ice cream party. We cannot believe it was the last Shabbat, and are so sad camp is coming to an end.
Friday was a “splashing” success, we had our Camp Simcha Special bubble run for Splash Mountain day. All the campers ran into colored bubbles and played in foam pits filled with. After everyone showered for Shabbat, they went to the Simcha Spa where they got their hair, nails and makeup done. Everyone looked so beautiful for the last Shabbat in Camp Simcha Special.
After a day filled with activities, we had a surprise in store for all the campers. We welcomed Mordecai Shapiro into our Camp Simcha family,and we rocked out to all our favorite songs. After an incredible concert, some of our campers put on an amazing and hilarious Snow White performance, where all their talents got to shine. What a great day in Camp Simcha Special.
Frontier Land day is going great. A shooting range was brought to camp, and each camper got to shoot their very own target that they made. The Champions went on a special trip to GAIT Therapeutic Riding Center where they got to ride horses. There is so much more in store in wild west Camp Simcha.
After a loaded day with workshops and Tour de Simcha, we ended the day with a great night activity. The Chicago Boyz Acrobatics came to Camp Simcha, and we watched them flip over campers, jump rope, and balance on tall chairs. Everyone enjoyed watching them perform, we didn’t want it to end. It was a great day, and we cannot wait for tomorrow.
What an incredible day in Camp Simcha Special. We all greeted the bikers with posters and cheers. A few campers made a special dance for all the bikers, and we taught everyone our Tour de Simcha song and dance. There was a yummy dinner in the tent that we all enjoyed. After all the bikers left, we had a water fight that really cooled us off!
After a loaded day in Camp Simcha Special, we ended the night with our very own Dancing with the Stars. Each camper and their counselor chose a dance to perform, and was then rated by our camp judges. Each dance was incredible which made the competition very tight. Sara won the mirror ball trophy with her partner Chanie! What great end to a day. We can’t wait for Tour de Simcha tomorrow!
