Camp directors speak


For the last 10 years, our camp has participated in the annual Chaiathon. 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. Chaiathon 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 Chaiathon 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.

 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. The word "nosson" is known as a 'palindrome' since it reads backwards and forwards. This signifies that when we give, we really get back, and even much more. Campers who take part of the Chaiathon feel so proud to become givers and know that they can help so many children with illness enjoy camp as they do. In doing so, they get back much more than they give. The unique prizes add much excitement and fun to our camp. 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.
