Last day 🙁

The chanichim had fun last shiurim today, summing up what they’ve learned and playing review games! Thank you to Shalhevet Schwartz and Elisha Kelman who wrote the daily shiurim around the topics of tochnit and the history we were learning about. They added so much to the experience each chanich/a had in learning about this time period. Your children all saw how practical, relevant and interesting Torah is 🙂

Each bunk  had some of their favorite peulot this morning, and then the afternoon was all about…packing and bringing bags to the section in Indoor World that was marked for each city/airport. Sigh!

Dinner was…kind of confusing, actually…more like breakfast! Since we are not eating meat in the days leading up to Tisha B’av, we had a very yummy dairy dinner of pancakes, waffles, blueberries, eggs and bananas. More like brinner 😉

Tonight the chanichim are allowed to stay up all night, but they are all gathered by eidah in an indoor spot – schmoozing or watching a movie and drifting off a little (hopefully…ssshh…that’s our trick)

We know there will be a lot of crying tomorrow, so everyone set your clocks with the countdown until NEXT summer, first session 2019 – see you then?

Signing off for now,

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
