Review for Chai-Life Line dba Chai Lifeline Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son was born with a condtion that doesn't allow him to bend his arms or legs. He is now 10 years old. Since he was 3 every summer was one of the hardest seasons to get by. He couldn't ride a bike, couldnt run in the park, shoot basketballs, play baseballs, etc. Then Chai Lifeline/Camp Simcha Special came around and saved our lives. WIth activites throughout the years to make my son feel so very special. But the best part of all is Camp Simcha Special. He looks forward to these incredible days all year. Besides the regular swimming,very special entertainment, they have candle making, mosaics, woodshop, ceramics and other very special arts and crafts. All activites that my son is able to do. The counsellors are full time entertainers!! They don't stop giving these childeren FUN!! and when camp is over they keep in touch with the campers - even from distant places such as Israel!!

There is no organization I can think of who has helped us in so many ways than Camp Simcha/Chai LIfeline.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

During my sons surgeries. Everytime he is in the hospital, every summer since he turned 8. Many times throughout the year.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make Camp retreats throughout the years so my son would have something to look forward to during the year
