It is so hard to believe that today is the last day of camp at Machane Stone summer 2023!
Last night, the whole machaneh met in Indoor World for two hours of fun at homemade carnival booths (including ice cream, popcorn and cotton candy!! ) and some very exciting Machal vs. Daled basketball! Machal won both the girls’ and boys’ games. The tension was high, the crowd was super into it and the players were impressive! We had some new bleacher seating which our Amish neighbors built for us and entertaining running commentary by some Tzevet members. It was a really fun second-to-last-night. Check out the action photos soon!
Yesterday and today’s schedules have some of the regular peulot and then some time to buy “Stonewear” – always a favorite last-day activity 🙂 Bringing home swag makes the goodbye a little easier.
The Village is busy packing up all of the campers’ amazing projects they made throughout the month. Your children are so excited to share with you how they made each item, and to tell you how the Village’s hands-on approach to learning brought the Tochnit to life. (Ask them about the empanadas they made and ate, and whether or not they sampled fried artichoke!)
This afternoon is packing time 🙁 This fun, inspiring, meaningful month is coming to end, and we are all feeling so grateful, bonded and…yes of course, exhausted!!!
