Wow! What an amazing way to end off our summer! We had a spectacular banquet dinner with all of our favorite delicacies. After, we went to the social hall to watch the end of the summer video that our media team worked day and night on. To end off our night, we cuddled under a tent by the tennis court and watched an emotional slideshow while waving glow sticks in the air. What an incredible summer it was in Camp Simcha 2018!
It’s the final day and we’re celebrating Chanukah! The dining room is decorated with dreidels, gelt and presents galore! Four of our campers performed their original songs by breakfast, starting off the day with a bang. We’re looking forward to an eventful day climaxed with our annual farewell banquet.
In honor of today being Pesach, we played “Slice” in which campers and counselors were instructed to make Pesach-themed dishes. Evidently, some dishes looked a lot more appetizing than others, but everyone had a blast… even the judges who had to eat them! We also had our pre-Pesach car washes which, of course, evolved into an Israel vs. USA water fight! Later in the day, we got into the Shabbat spirit with challah baking. We are filled with both excitement and emotion going into our final shabbat in Camp Simcha. Shabbat Shalom from Camp Simcha!
It was Canada day in Camp Simcha and we had a blast! Campers and counselors enjoyed a giant bath filled with genuine-looking snow which had the texture of applesauce! For night activity, Pogo Fred performed unbelievable tricks on different sized pogo sticks for us. Later, the staff were treated with sushi, churros and ice cream as a token of appreciation for all the amazing work they do.
What an awesome day! We started by taking a ferry to Governor’s Island, where we enjoyed a delicious barbecue and rode multi-person bikes, all with a gorgeous view of the Hudson River. Then, we bounced our way through Central Park on bouncy balls; that was a blast! After that, we headed to Monsey, where the band “Pumpidisa” performed for us while we enjoyed an overabundance of pizza and fries. It was not only a delightful experience, but also an incredible opportunity for us to show the world what a magical place Camp Simcha truly is.
Camp Simcha is heading to NYC! The buses are currently being loaded and we are just about ready to depart. We are anticipating an amazing trip and are ready to show the world what Camp Simcha is all about!
It was yet another extraordinary day in Camp Simcha! For first activity, each camper from the Wacky Macs division got a chance to shoot down flying discs at New York Big Shot. Later, the entire camp had a blast playing “Simon Says” with Steve Max (A.K.A Simon Sez) and we found out that campers are far better than counselors at listening to directions! Night activity was a riveting surprise concert by Yaakov Shwekey. Also, April fools! Despite rumors that the New York Trip won’t be happening this year, it was just announced that we will in fact be going to New York City tomorrow!
Light sabers, Darth vader masks and black capes, campers and counselors were all geared up for Star Wars day. Campers went through a bounce house “boot camp” in order to become proper stormtroopers. In classic Camp Simcha fashion, it turned into a massive water fight! Everyone went wild when campers got up on stage and performed original songs which were recorded in our very own studio. It was also Deal Day today! Each camper got a chance to fill up his own bag with tons of awesome prizes! We’d like to thank all the generous people from Deal for joining us today and for giving our campers such an amazing experience. Later, everyone gathered in the social hall for a Star Wars themed party. For night activity, the incredibly talented and entertaining “Twins from France” performed. Super excited we are for tomorrow what’s in store! (Yoda voice)
