honorary riding partners

Baila Age: 12

Baila's parents describe her as happy and always positive. This intrepid fifth-grader is determined that illness and disability will not stop her. Her future plans include getting married, having a large family, and becoming a teacher.
Arianna Age: 11

She's a singer, dancer, daughter, sister, baker, songwriter and full-time inspiration to everyone who knows her. She can't decide whether to be a doctor or a dance instructor (or both!) when she grows up.
Peri Age: 16

Peri was born with nemaline rod myopathy, the Eastern European form of muscular dystrophy. She needs both a wheelchair and respirator, but Peri still keeps up with her peers. She's a dancer, an artist, and an enthusiastic Camp Simcha Special camper. She can't decide between psychology, law, or children's advocacy as a career, but she is determined to make the world a better place.
Mikayla Age: 10

When Mikayla was diagnosed with cancer this summer, one of her first stops after starting treatment was Camp Simcha. She is currently in treatment. When asked about her dreams, Mikyla said, "She wants her cancer to be gone for good - and she wants world peace!"
Anny Age: 15

Anny's brain tumors robbed her of her sight, but not of her determination to develop her talents. For her Bat Mitzvah, she recorded a CD of her own songs to raise money for Chai Lifeline. This year she started in the music program at Frisch High School in New Jersey. She plans to become a professional singer, songwriter and actress.
Age: 13

Daniel traveled from South Africa to attend Camp Simcha after he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Now in the 7th grade, Daniel loves listening to music, assembling fantastic and complex Lego sets, and creating art. His dream job would integrate all these interests: he wants to design computer games.
Chana Age: 11

Chana was born with epilepsy, and seizures have been part of her life since she was four. She is determined to enjoy life, and had the summer of a lifetime at Camp Simcha Special this year.
Samara Age: 11

Samara is a 11 yr old from NJ who lost her leg from Rhabdomyosarcoma. She loves, princesses, dancing, writing stories, and reading. She loves spending time with her counselors throughout the year, and them seeing them again at Camp Simcha.
Yehuda Age: 9

Yehuda is a loving, smart and creative 9 year old boy. He enjoys learning Torah, acting out Star Wars scenes and spending time with his family and friends. Yehuda wants to be a Rabbi when he grows up.
Sarah Age: 13

Sarah Naomi is the world's biggest Minion fan. If she could choose to be a minion when she grows up, she would. She loves art, family, and egg rolls. She hope to be a home designer some day. Two years ago, on the first night of Chanukah, Sarah Naomi's wish came true - she received a new heart through a miraculous heart transplant. Since that time, Chai Lifeline and Camp Simcha have become a strong part of her life. The opportunity to go to Camp Simcha makes her smile ear-to-ear.
Henny Age: 16

Hi my name is Henny.

In December of 2015 I got diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called ulcerative colitis. It attacks me and pretty much affects every moment of my day to day life.

It's not just two blissful weeks every summer. It's not Just special food brought to the hospital. It's not just the visits. It's the volunteers who get you through the year and make camp the special place it is. It's the shabbatons, events and retreats for the whole entire family. It's that bond that you share with girls who understand as you sit around in the bunkhouse comparing side effects And your funniest hospital stories. It's the friends that will last you a lifetime. It's that beat in my heart that won't stop beating.
