Friday, August 16

DATE: August 16, 2019

The campers had a great time at Lakeside Park last night playing soccer and frisbee, spending time with friends, & eating delicious hot dogs. Eidah Daled returned late at night from their adventurous canoe trip.

Our Fridays are fun! They start with quite the breakfast party, as we make our sandwiches with some traditional “zmirot” about PB and Jelly. (Even though we are nut-free here!!) Ask your children when they come home to run through the sandwich-making songs from Friday. The campers had a special shiur session today during which they learned about kosher mezuzot and actually checked them. Each eidah then departed for different local hikes. When they return, it will be time to clean and prepare for shabbat kodesh.

We are excited for erev shabbat mifkad, followed by a very energy-filled and inspiring Kabbalat Shabbat and of course lots of singing, dancing, learning, talking and eating all Shabbat long. And our favorite: slow shira at seudah shlishit! This shabbat promises to be especially spirited and meaningful as we celebrate the last shabbat of this session together.

Machal is returning from an intense 4 day adventure in Algonquin. They canoed, portaged, camped in the wilderness and carried all of their food and belongings in the wilderness in smaller groups. They reunited last night and are spending the day in Niagara Falls! They are looking forward to reuniting with the Machane for a spirited and inspiring final shabbat.

Shabbat Shalom from Machane Stone!!

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.


Yakov & Estee, Co-Directors
