COVID-19: Update

June 2, 2021

Vaccinated Campers:

Campers (ages 12-15) will be considered fully vaccinated 14 days after the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine. Once fully vaccinated, campers will not be required to test or quarantine in the event of an exposure. HOWEVER, ALL campers will still be required to observe home isolation protocols and test prior to camp because no camper will be 14 days past the second shot prior to the beginning of first session. (Questions should be directed to ann@campstone.org).

Travel to Camp – 3 Key Components

1) Mask: Wear a well-fitted and comfortable mask for the entire time you are in transit.
2) Hand Sanitizer: Carry a personal hand sanitizer and use it frequently.
3) Distance: Keep your distance from everyone not traveling with you to Camp Stone.

Wearing Masks at Camp Stone

Every camper and staff member will be required to wear a mask on the first day of camp – June 15, 2021. Masks must be worn from the time travel to camp begins until dinner that evening, when they will join their camp family cohort.

After the first day, the only time campers will be required to wear masks will be in large group gatherings.

Thank you for partnering with us to keep camp safe!

Thank you for partnering with us!

About the Chanukah Raffle

Dear Camp Stone Community,

It is an incredible feeling to reconnect with everyone once again at the beginning of our 2021 camp season.

We are writing to you today, first and foremost, to express tremendous gratitude.

Hakarat HaTov, literally “recognizing the good”, is an important and fundamental principle in our community. We, at Camp Stone, want to express our Hakarat HaTov to everyone receiving this email for your unwavering support, especially this past summer. Whether you provided financial assistance through your donated tuition dollars, participated in Indoor World, or connected with the Camp Stone community in other ways, together we had an incredibly successful, albeit different, summer experience.

There is no substitute for being in Sugar Grove, Pennsylvania, and this summer, B’ezrat Hashem, we will be back at Camp Stone, in person, in full force.

To achieve that goal, we must continue to ensure the financial success of our home away from home that we all know and love so deeply. The logo on top, featuring the slogan “Stone. Forever.” also features a Ner Tamid, an “eternal flame.” The year 1969, etched into the logo, is the year camp was founded. Symbolically, the overall image represents the idea that Camp Stone began many years ago and must endure forever, always burning brightly, and always an integral part of our collective conscience.

On that note, we are excited to announce that our annual Chanukah Campaign will be a raffle taking place over all 8 nights of Chanukah with prizes for both campers and parents/alumni!!

Please go back to the web page  to purchase raffle tickets and help us achieve 100% participation from our entire camp community!

Looking forward to being in touch with all of you in the near future.

Sincerely,

Yakov & Estee, Co-Directors
