Monday July 17 – Final Day

DATE: July 18, 2017

Every bunk had three final peulot today – for many bunks their madrichim requested the favorite activity one more time! After a routine morning, we all got ready for the big “flashmob” dance that we have been practicing for all month. Each bunk has had a peulah where they leaned the steps and hand motions, and everyone has been practicing. It was soooo fun, and our professional photographer came with his video-drone and filmed it from above. When you see it, you’ll understand how much fun it was for us 🙂

The rest of the day was packing 🙁

The chanichim will stay up pretty late tonight, hanging out for the last time (THIS summer) with their friends and madrichim. You will see them tomorrow… And we hope to see them back here in 48 weeks!!

Machal spent their day packing and cleaning up their area of camp, teaching them that you should leave a place as nice (or nicer) than when you got there…and then they were treated to a fun night out at the ice-skating rink nearby!!

Thank you all for the privilege of letting us be with your children here in Machane Stone for the past month, connecting them to Yerushalayim, introducing them to new friends and memorable role models and giving them activities and opportunities that will be part of them forever!

Until next summer…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
