As Machal continues their adventurous week in Algonquin…

Kaytana had their last day here 🙁

They had their favorite peulot in the morning and then had to spend a few hours packing up their stuff. But tonight, it is back to fun n’ games with a carnival!!! A blow up castle and snow cones and music and more!! Best night!! We all emjoyed watching our youngest campers loving camp and getting into all the cheering and fun! They can definitely do this camp thing and we hope they all come back next summer 🙂 They all head out tomorrow morning with projects, a gift from camp and lunch and snacks for the road. Nesiah Tova!!

The rest of Machane had to watch the second Beit haMikdash (well technically the shekem shack) be attacked by Romans (well, technically members of tzevet) and then experience the trauma of galut 🙁

Well, technically…THE CHUTZ!!

The campers were excited to pack up and hit the road…they will set up camp for two nights and almost three days at a site we use every year about a mile away. They will daven, cook meals (or eat what the mitbach sends) and have shiur and peulot there… We also have a special treat this year: Yehuda Katz, a musician from the band Reva L’Sheva is visiting camp and will host a kumzits tonight and give a concert tomorrow night!

Look for pictures of your children from this highlight experience of the summer!! Imagine the smell of campfire as you look through pictures 🙂 

 

 

 

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
