Friday July 13 – Hikes!!

DATE: July 13, 2018

Last hike day 🙁

How did this happen so fast?

We are so excited for our last Shabbat together in this session; we will make it full of energy and inspiration (to last a year!!)

Today’s hikes were:

Aleph – the hike to our Chutz site and a picnic and some games there

Vav – a hike to the Perry’s in Busti (with some help from buses)

Bet – a path in the forest behind camp that has the kids end, surprisingly, at our agam!

Gimmel  – a hike to the Perry’s near Lake Chautauqua, in Lakewood NY (again, with some of it on a bus)

Daled – best hike of the summer!! The one that brings them to Friendly’s in Jamestown, NY 🙂

Machal stopped at Niagara Falls on the way back to camp today. We cannot wait for their big traditional march/entry into Mifkad today where they will share with us their pride in “conquering” Algonquin this week. Some call it “showing off” but we know they are just so proud 😉

Shabbat Shalom and Chodesh Tov. May it truly be a “menachem” Av this year!

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
