Shavu Tov! We are off and running here…to the Chutz! Eidot Aleph – Daled left after Aruchat Eser to set up our machane a mile away. They will live there for two and a half days, enjoying peulot, making meals on a fire, davening in the outdoors and having shiur on the grass. This is a highlight for many chanichim and tzevet! You will love the pictures 🙂

Kaytana also left camp today…for Midway Amusement Park. They were like the spies going into Israel to check it out! Turns out it is very good 🙂 They came back with positive reports, like Yehoshua and Calev. Tonight, they worked hard on creating beautiful Chumash covers for the chumashim they are bringing home.

Machal, too “hit the road” – on their way to DC. They started with bike riding at Presque Isle. Then on to Pittsburgh, where they heard from a Muslim gentleman who spoke about responding as a community to the tragedy at Tree of Life and an intolerance for hate. They ended the day with a fun, but challenging, activity – rock climbing.

Signing off for now…new blogger will be posting for the last two weeks. Enjoy the peek you receive at the magical world your children are in!

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
