Friday, Erev Shabbat, August 17

DATE: August 17, 2018

Greetings from Machane Stone!

This morning began (after Mifkad and Tefila of course) with the weekly Stone-style high energy Erev Shabbat Dance Party! Every erev shabbat, during Breakfast, the Chadar Ochel rocks with energetic dancing, singing, and cheering. Meanwhile, the campers also packed lunches and prepared for their tiyulim.

Eidah Aleph is hiking and berry picking.

Eidah Vav is on an exciting water hike adventure.

Eidah Bet & Eidah Gimmel are on a hiking adventure with an ice-cream shop as their destination! (It’s extra convenient that the most popular ice-cream produced and sold in this area of Penn is completely kosher 🙂 )

Eidah Daled is on a hike to a different ice cream venue.

Meanwhile, all of tzevet is busily preparing, cleaning, and organizing the Machane for what promises to be a beautiful and exciting 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.

Sincerely,

Yakov & Estee, Co-Directors
