Friday July 14

DATE: July 14, 2017

We had a great-weather day and each Eidah had a fun hike and a wonderful time together outside:

Aleph hiked to “town” i.e. to the park and stores in Sugar Grove, nearby

Vav hiked the trail near camp that ends at our lake 🙂

Bet hiked (and cheated a little with a bus) and enjoyed ice cream from the Perry’s ice cream shack 🙂

Gimmel did a trail we call “the purple mailbox hike” – let your imaginations run wild…

Daled celebrated their LAST friday hike with “the Friendly’s hike” 🙂

And Machal did some serious avodah (as in Torah v’Avodah) back at camp – they built a new storage facility for the fire rings that the machane uses at the chutz site! Kol HaKavod and Todah Rabbah!!

No one can believe it is our…last 🙁 Shabbat together here! How did we three and a half weeks go by already?! It promises to be a very spirited, loving and inspiring Shabbat filled with beautiful Tefilah, dancing during meals and zemirot, and the slow shira that we all traesure, at Seudah Shlishit. It better be amazing, because we are taking this Shabbat with us now for the next 48 weeks until we are all back 😉

Sunday is Yom Tochnit!! Some unbelievable “you gotta see it to believe it” things are planned…stay tuned!! Come back for a full report!

 

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
