Camp Simcha

Service details

Who we are…

Camp Simcha exists to provide practical and emotional support for Jewish families where children are suffering from serious illness including premature babies.

Support is provided throughout the whole of the UK to families who have children and young people aged 0-18.

Just one parent needs to be Jewish in order to be eligable for support from us.


What we do…

We offer powerful positive experiences for sick children and young people and their siblings. We also offer practical and emotional support for the family. Both these approaches are designed to improve the quality of life for all family members.

Our range of services are bespoke and delivered through a Family Liaison Officer who is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week to discuss whatever the ill child, their siblings or even the parents need to get them through the difficult times.

Popular services include:

  • free transport to hospital
  • meals on the table
  • expert emergency respite care
  • coffee evenings for parents
  • access to counselling
  • art at home for kids
  • regular outings and parties and
  • a our big Annual Retreat
