Summer 2020

Tuesday June 8

Happy Color War!! Check out all of the details on the Indoor World website. Click on the link!!

Hope you are enjoying watching the zany, creative and fun things your children are doing today 🙂 We all know it doesn’t matter who wins…but I hope your house has a winner tonight!!

Team Am Segulah and Yoshvei Tevel are battling it out today. Black and Red VS. Blue and Yellow!

The chanichim have endless challenges which present them with opportunities to earn points for their team!! And their attendance at all of the learning counts for a lot of point too – not just in the World to Come 🙂

Today’s Tochnit learning (is your child signed up for a chavruta?) was on the Enlightenment (part 3 of the unit) and focused on Ultra Orthodoxy, represented by the Chatam Sofer and Modern Orthodoxy, represented by Rav S.R. Hirsch.

Chugim today included cooking, zumba, drawing lessons and…Chug Plugah  (you are lucky if your kids joined that and learned some helpful hints to deal with things around the house!) as well as many other engaging, fun and sometimes just silly, activities.

The Torah videos that are new today were sent in by Rav Rick Shindelheim from Cleveland, OH and Rabbi Yechiel Morris from Detroit (from Estee’s hometown!!). They each have such beautiful messages for all of us and are full of pride and excitement when they speak about this summer’s amazing Indoor World online Stone experience.

Tomorrow you will hear all about the amazing program Machal has been doing this Summer.  Stay tuned…you will be impressed and inspired!

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
