So…do you want to hear about the Shiur on Shai Agnon today OR color war breakout???

Let’s assume most are more curious about color war and just put Agnon on hold for now 🙂

Broccoli, broccoli, broccoli…that was everywhere today all over camp: with sauce, chocolate-covered, for shekem…everywhere!! The chanichim/ot, who already have been protesting the quiche (as some of you saw in the pictures) were losing their minds! They figured this MUST be color war breakout, right? Obviously!! So when a Rosh Eidah got reprimanded and fired in front of everyone, the whole camp was shocked and stunned!! THAT must be real!! Oh no 🙁 But….rainbow colored “color war 2019” bracelets were thrown to the crowd and the feelings turned to surprise and cheering!! They got them this time!!! Ha!

Here we go!! Jerusalem (yellow and blue) vs. Tel Aviv (green and black)

All details and the schedule of fun will be blogged about shortly…for now everyone get some sleep! We have a loooooong and tiring two days ahead of us. Good luck everyone!!

Machal was seen around DC today! They visited the Holocaust museum, had free time for “pick your favorite Smithsonian” and then visited Sky Zone trampolines. A day packed with meaning, learning, and fun!

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
