Hike Day!

Eidah Daled got a head start…leaving at 2:00 a.m. for their “midnight hike” (long-standing tradition here at camp, and a real rite of passage for eidah daled). They davened at sunrise and ate something…and then back to bed! When they woke up in the early afternoon, they ate lunch and then had small groups to discuss what they need to know to be IN CHARGE at the chutz…which should be this week if all of our calculations are correct 😉

Everyone else’s hike:

Gimmel – the hike that puts them at Top’s supermarket at the end!!

Bet – the hike to TOWN (Sugar Grove, PA)

Vav – the hike that is affectionately known around here as “the sewer hike” which has the kids coming out at our agam. No, it does not involve a real sewer! Camp does have some standard for cleanliness and hygiene 😉

Aleph – the hike that has them ending at a Perry’s ice cream store!

Kaytana – Berry picking!! yay, we love those at seudah shlishit

Machal  – These chanichim had a memorable experience, visiting the cemetery of the old Jewish community nearby in Corry, PA. They learned about this community and some of the people buried there and did some clean-up. Afterwards, they had some time for an evaluation/self-reflection about how the program has been so far for them.

So…that means SHABBAT #2, here we come! Plugah and all of tzevet worked really hard today, as they do every Friday, to clean up camp and get everything ready for Shabbat!!

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
