Camp Simcha


Camp Simcha exists to improve the quality of life of children suffering from serious illnesses. Our mission is to ensure that no such child, anywhere in the UK, has to suffer without us.


Our support extends to children from 0 – 18 years of age, with any serious condition or illness, including any form of paediatric cancer, muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, Crohn's and Colitis, many rare genetic conditions such as dysautonomia, serious heart conditions and uncontrolled seizures, Type 1 diabetes, premature and sick babies.

Camp Simcha is unique in that we provide 24/7 support to families who have the heart ache of dealing with an ill child.  Throughout the year, we provide a wide range of services designed to provide both practical and emotional support to parents. We make a critical difference to children through powerful positive experiences.

We aim to provide essential support not only to the unwell child of each family but also to the siblings whose anxiety, loneliness and confusion can be extremely overwhelming and sometimes overlooked. Our philosophy is that the most effective way to help a sick child is to improve things for the whole family.

If you know of a child or family that could benefit from Camp Simcha’s help, please contact us on 020 8202 9297 or visit our website at www.campsimcha.org.uk.
