Baltimore, MD - July 9, 2020 - After months of quarantine, lockdown, and isolation, children with serious illnesses will have an exciting summer to look forward to thanks to Chai Lifeline’s new Camp Simcha Without Borders initiative.
For the first time in its history, Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha Special, Chai Lifeline’s flagship summer programs for children with cancer, blood disorders, and all forms of chronic illness, will run day camps in cities across the United States.
The Mid-Atlantic Region of Chai Lifeline will host girls’ and boys’ sessions of Camp Simcha Without Borders in Baltimore, with satellite programs being implemented in the Greater Washington communities as well.
“Five years ago, there was no formal regional office for Chai Lifeline in the Mid-Atlantic Region. Today, not only is there a local Chai Lifeline chapter, but the next evolution of Camp Simcha is now in our neighborhoods as well. What a testament to the selfless communal leaders who are helping us build a sustainable organization for our families, for years to come.” said Tzvi Haber, director of Chai Lifeline in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
Chai Lifeline has been working closely with health and government officials to create and implement a safe and exciting program that will conform with all local regulations and CDC guidelines. The legendary Ms. Adi Singerman, the Mid-Atlantic Region’s Program Associate, is coordinating the details of what is certain to be an unforgettable summer for Chai Lifeline children in Maryland.
