Busy day in camp today (just the way we like it!!):

The Village opened!! AND…it was bunk night!!

The Village is an area of camp where, each summer, we create a world of experiential learning with baking, glass blowing, blacksmithing, a planetarium and other fun activities. This month, in keeping with our theme of “celebrating 50 years of Jerusalem’s reunification”, the village is The Old City of Jerusalem. It comes alive through the centuries. You will hear more about The Village in this blog and see pictures of the activities on the webiste. We don’t want to spoil all of the surprises…but your children are making/creating some really cool projects!

Bunk night is an opportunity for each bunk to work for one peulah today creating a sign (paint on wood) with their bunk name and a fun way to express/represent it. In addition to explaining their shelet (wood sign), each bunk can sing a song or do a funny presentation. Look for those pictures on the website 🙂 The campers have so much fun with this each summer and the signs are hung in our Chadar Ochel!

Kaytana watched Moshe go before Pharoah and demand “Let my people go!” This turned into a little arguement…and then a fight…and then a war…Color War!! Tomorrow will be a fun mini-color war day with Team Moshe and Team Aharon enjoying races, sports, cheering and good-natured competition.

Machal stayed close to shelter, due to the on-and-off rain today. They did a 5-mile hike nearby (piece of cake for this group!) and enjoyed a fun night of bowling tonight in a nearby bowling alley. Anything indoors is a treat for them 😉

 

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
