LAST DAY

DATE: July 19, 2022

This morning, although there was a light rain, we woke up on time at 7:30, because we knew there was a long day of peulot and packing ahead of us!

Shiur was a review game. Each group separated into two teams and had to take all the events we learned about this session and put them in chronological order along a time line! It is amazing what chanichim have learned and what they remember! Thank you to all of the morim this session – that includes the Beit Midrash staff along with many other tzevet members who took the time to learn with our chanichim every morning.

The rest of the morning was peulot – everyone’s last ones for the summer 🙁

The afternoon was spent packing, followed by a last mifkad before a yummy dinner of hamburgers!

We had an awesome fireworks show as a beautiful send-off and the eidot will spend the night with their friends and counselors, schmoozing, eating their last snacks and watching movies (here’s hoping they drift off for a few hours…)

Machal had a day of packing and cleaning up as well. Then they made pizzas on their dairy grills and left camp for ice skating and ice cream. They had a closing circle, wrapping up the month and sharing all the lessons they learned from these very intense four weeks together. We are super proud of them and thank Elliot and Adina who gave them an unforgettable experience! We are looking forward to their first summer on tzevet in 2 years!!

While everyone is looking forward to seeing family and friends back home, there will be a lot of tears at the farewell mifkad in the morning with our directors Yakov and Estee,  and then again as everyone loads the buses and says goodbye to each other. This was a great month and we want to say thank you again to everyone who made Moshevet Mamlechet Kohanim possible!!!! The countdown until Summer 2023 Session 1  begins tomorrow!

Over and out.

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
