DATE: June 25, 2018

We are, b”h, in a groove here in Machane!

Today was beautiful weather and the schedule ran smoothly with lots of activities…Ceramics opened up!! And tomorrow, rumor has it,  we are start peulot in “the Village”! We’ll talk more about that special corner of camp when it opens… Best lunch: potato bar with baked potatoes and toooons of toppings 🙂

The shiur in the morning was about secular zionism and religious zionism, and later in the day as the kids were enjoying their shekem (snack from canteen) our Roshei Moshava acted out a debate between A.D. Gordon and Ahad haAm, which ended in an agreement to head out and “settle the Land” i.e.  time for the lina – a sleep out in the different camp sites in the many acres of woods that belong to Camp Stone. Everyone went running to pack and leave on time to start cooking their dinner out at their lina site 🙂  They all knew it was coming – ha! They just had a feeling… Campers who have been here before know we do a lina the first week, and chanichim were trying to get their madrichim to admit it all day 😉

Kaytana had day #6 already (almost half-way through!! Crazy) with a fun peula of “limonana” – making the minty lemonade by themselves! And tonight, they enjoyed a BBQ dinner outdoors also…but they get to sleep in their beds 😉

Machal had a hike and then as a reward…bowling!! Some indoor fun for them for a change!

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.


Yakov & Estee, Co-Directors
