Celebrating our 25th Summer

Get ready for a summer like no other, where we blend the cherished traditions of the past with exciting new adventures that promise to make this 25th anniversary summer truly unforgettable. We’ve curated a program that brings together the best of both worlds: your longtime favorite camp activities and a host of fresh experiences that will ignite the spirit of adventure in every camper.

But that’s not all – this special summer will also feature exciting field trips that will add an extra layer of thrill and excitement to the overall experience. From outdoor excursions to cultural outings, we’re bringing the magic beyond our campgrounds and into the broader world.

What truly sets Camp Simcha apart is the unique, wholesome Jewish community that blossoms here each summer. There’s real magic in the air, fostering forever friendships, shared traditions, and a sense of belonging that only emerges in the warm embrace of our camp. It’s an atmosphere that resonates with the values of our community, creating an environment where everyone is not just a camper but a cherished member of the Camp Simcha family.

Camp Simcha’s 25th summer promises to be an extraordinary chapter in our story, and we can’t wait for your family to be a part of it.
