The second day of color war was a hard-fought battle 🙂

The teams were really pushing themselves in their competitions and preparing their presentations. The special events of the day were the Chidon (Torah questions) and the 200-person Apache Race with 30 different tasks and parts… It was crazy!! 

The presentations went late into the night and were so impressive. Enjoy all of the pictures and videos that will be available. 

In the end, a winner must be announced…and it was Team Mikdash! Red and black! Congrats!! The chanichim had such a fun color war and both teams seemed satisfied and proud. Those eidah daled captains really showed leadership and great middot!

We will regroup and reunify for the fast day and focus on unity and love as we commemorate the 17th of Tammuz. 

Machal had a really fun day with a beautiful waterfall hike near Pittsburgh, followed by watersports and then Skyzone in Silver Spring, MD.

Thanks to Melvin J Berman for hosting us!! 

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
