Children with Special Needs Enjoy Winter Camp

The Friendship Circle of Brooklyn held its annual winter camp for children with special needs who are off from school.

Coordinated in conjunction with and hosted by the H.E.S. in Canarsie, the program included crafts, music, karate, yoga, sports, a Magic Show and exclusive access to the center’s multi-sensory environment – Minie’s Place.

“It’s our chance to imbue the kids with wholesome fun in a warm and loving environment,” said Mrs. Chani Majesky, director of Friendship Circle, “the smiles of these precious kids, are priceless.”

The staff of the H.E.S., headed by Mr. Eli Rubenstein – Executive Director, Mrs. Moshit Rivkin – Asst Executive Director and Ms. Natalie Galosa – Coordinator of the Special Needs Program, all went out of their way to accommodate the Friendship Circle, down to the last detail.

The Friendship Circle thanks Morah Tiechtel of Beth Rivkah High School and the dedicated volunteers who are constantly outdoing themselves in their dedication to the children.

The camp was part of the Friendship Circle’s Public Holiday Initiative and scholarship fund that offers a full week of camp with an action-packed schedule to children with special needs.
