Friday – Shabbat, July 27-28

DATE: July 28, 2018

Shavua Tov from Camp Stone!

On Friday, the campers enjoyed Tefilah, Shiur, and breakfast. Then, the whole camp embarked on a local tiyul (hike). The campers packed their lunch and water and each eidah left to their own hiking adventure. The destinations varied – including berry-picking, parks, trails, and ice-cream. Meanwhile, back at camp, Plugah and all Tzevet busily prepared the camp for shabbat – cleaning, cooking, and organizing.

Shabbat at Moshava is a spirited, inspiring, and meaningful experience! Shabbat began with Mifkad and spirited Tefilah with incredible ruach, singing, and dancing. The campers danced their way to the chadar ochel for eating and mostly for ruach, singing, and dancing. Shabbat day was filled with more ruach, singing, cheering, and dancing 🙂 A few of the many highlights of shabbat include:

  • After lunch, every camper is paired with a staff member (counselor or tzevet) and learned in chavrutah throughout the camp. These chavrutot will meet every shabbat of camp. It is incredible how the camp fills with one/two-on-one learning pairs, learning topics that they find meaningful and uplifting.
  • After Menucha, each division had special “Eidah Time” together – to play games, bond, and enjoy shabbat.
  • After seudah shelisheet, the whole camp gathers in concentric circles for incredible singing and then slow shira. This week the Rosh Mosh described how during the week people may have their unique and independent experiences at camp but during Slow Shira, everyone joins together as a community with shared values and purpose.

We are looking forward to another incredible week at Camp Stone BH!

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
