Summer 2020

Sunday July 5

Shavua Tov!!

You had a taste of the special Shabbat spirit with our livestreaming of slow Shira on Thursday, Kabbalat Shabbat on Friday and then havdalah on Motzei Shabbat. Enjoy those videos, if you missed it – just click on those links!!

Did you enjoy the Shabbat Parsha Packet that came in your special Indoor World care package? We hope it gave you and your family a chance to recreate and replicate some of the magic from Shabbat in Sugar Grove.

Friday’s Boker Tov Sugar Grove morning radio show interviewed Rav Adi Krohn who has been in camp every summer since 1996!! Check it out:)

Nikayon (clean up) was so impressive! So many chanichim cleaned their rooms and houses for Shabbat and showed the Roshei Moshava what they did. There were bunk winners as there always are…For the Banim: Bunk Short Pigeon and for Banot: a 3-way tie between Bunk GGGG, Bunk VAVasaurs and Bunk Rabbanit Gertrude! Kol haKavod to those Chanichim for giving it their all in Nikayon lichvod Shabbat.

And so…onto this week! Week #2 of Indoor World 2020! Time to open that care package and go DEEP down to the bottom (remove the other bags gently and put to the side) Do you see that weird bottom? Lift it up…Surprise!!

Look online for the latest individual, bunk and family challenges! Put yourself out there, be silly and have fun and you can be up on the leaderboards!

Today’s Tochnit learning is a continuation of the second crisis we are studying this summer, the Enlightenment and how that rationalist and scientific way of thinking changed the way Jews thought about their religion and values and Torah!

Today’s Chugim kept your children busy with activities such as learning magic tricks, cooking, baking (from Pat Bamelach in Efrat!), learning how to lein Tehillim, Zumba, Broadway amateur hour and chillin’ with Estee Fleischmann!! We hope your children took advantage of the fun! And night tochnit is always so fun – each eidah has something special coming their way!

New Torah videos are up and the tzevet shiur was given by yours truly 🙂 Enjoy all the Torah content from the many friends, family and fans of Camp Stone.

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
