Last Day, Tuesday, August 21

Greetings Machane Stone Families!

As you eagerly await your childrens’ return, please find an update of the last few days below:

On Sunday, the campers returned from a day outing at a local park with boating, ice-cream truck, sports fields, playground, and art projects to another amazing surprise! After a special breakout, the campers were treated to a spectacular fireworks display. Then, they had a blast at a fun carnival with inflatables, cotton candy, sno cones, popcorn, and dunk your madrich (Estee & Yaakov bravely started us off.)

Yesterday, the campers had a morning of their favorite peulot followed by time to pack and hang out with their friends. After a spirited dinner and tefilah, the campers enjoyed a night to connect with their Eidot while watching fun movies – an Eidah-wide sleepover (with very little sleeping 🙂 ). The campers woke up very early for davening, nikayon, breakfast, a final moving mifkad – with cheering for their upcoming Eidah, tearful good-byes (until next year!), and loading on the busses.

On a personal note, it’s been a privilege to provide a portal into Machane Stone. It’s truly a special place that deliberately infuses every child with an appreciation and love for Torat Yisrael, Am Yisrael, & Eretz Yisrael while investing in their personal growth.

Thank you for sharing your children with us and looking forward to seeing them soon! Wishing you a Shana Tova – filled with growth, peace, & health and all of the incredible values that animate Machane Stone!

Signing off,

Michelle Sarna

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
