Camp directors speak

For the last 10 years, our camp has participated in the annual Chai-A-Thon. The excitement it generates amongst the campers to raise money for a great cause is amazing. I think that beyond the prizes that motivate them, it's knowing that their efforts will directly help critically ill children their own age, and that they can make a difference. G-d willing, we look forward to many more summers of raising funds for Chai Lifeline!

Camp Gan Israel of Greater New Haven, CT
 We are so grateful to be able to provide our campers with the opportunity to be involved in this wonderful Mitzvah.  Chai-A-Thon helps us instill the value of Chesed in our campers while enabling them to help the children of Chai Lifeline enjoy a meaningful summer camp experience.

 We find that the Chai-A-thon experience helps children to begin realizing differences in people and developing feelings of empathy and Nosai B'ol with others. This happens almost without their realization and while having a fabulously good time.

Shevach Day Camp, Lakewood, NJ
 I have been promoting the Chai Lifeline Swimathon in my camp for over 10 years. It's a win-win! A win for Chai Lifeline as it helps fund Camp Simcha, and a win for my campers giving them the opportunity to be part of something so special. As much as we are able to do for Chai Lifeline, Chai Lifeline does for us because the Chai-A-Thon increases the Ruach in the camp and teaches the boys what it means to do for someone else. I highly recommend this program to all camps that want to instill their campers with the value of giving as well as add a new dimension of excitement to their camp.
