Friday Hike Day June 28

DATE: June 28, 2024

After learning about one of the shabbat zemirot (Yom Shabbaton) that was written by a famous Rabbi from our part of Jewish history (Rabbi Yehuda HaLevi) that we are studying, everyone was ready to head out for hike day!!

Well, everyone except Eidah Daled. They had woken up at 3 am and done a “night hike” with a shacharit at sunrise and were back in bed for a nap by the time everyone else left. When they woke up they had a picnic lunch down the road at Archery and then had an i ce cream dessert, a prize they won for picking up the most garbage around camp earlier in the week.

Kaytana – hike to a Perry’s ice cream shack (with some help from a bus!)

Alef- Berry Picking

Vav – Hike to “town” (the nearby park and gas station in the center of Sugar Grove

Bet – Hiking trail near camp

Gimmel – a water hike and then a stop at the Tops supermarket to spend some money on shabbat treats

Machal – they slept out at their chutz site last night, so today they had their never-ending brunch meal where they cooked and concocted all sorts of creative foods. They had competitons and contests for the best eggs, fanciest french toast etc and then came back to machane to shower and prepare for Shabbat.

Shabbat Shalom everyone!!

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
