DATE: July 7, 2017

Machal is home and had an amazing change-your-life-forever week camping out, hiking, and being one with nature… We are all excited to catch up with them and hear all the details over Shabbat 🙂 Kol HaKavod!!

Today was hike day:

Eidah aleph went berry-picking. looking forward to eating those at Seudah Shlishit 🙂

Eidah vav and bet “went to town” right here in Sugar Grove. Each eidah hiked one way and had a bus the other way. They at their lunch at the town park and spent some money at the local grocery store.

Eidah Gimmel did a water hike, which brough them into Youngsville.

And Eidah Daled had a hike…at 3:00 am. The famous (infamous?) “midnight hike” that is a rite of passage here…they were woken up, taken out in the cool air for a fun hike and davened shacharit at sunrise. Then they went back to sleep 🙂

Shabbat Shalom!!

Looking forward to the third full week of camp…which should mean…you know what!!! Stay tuned 😉

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
