Shavua Tov from Machane Stone!

We had a beautiful & uplifting final shabbat. The Kabbalat shabbat, onegs, parsha skits, halacha Q & A, tefillot, slow shira, chavrutot, chaburot, singing, cheering, dancing, Eidah time, Stone Trivia, Menucha,  & Havdallah were full of energy and excitement as the campers maximized their final shabbat together. The ruach, singing, dancing, learning, cheering, & bonding were so incredibly strong – enough to keep our campers inspired & full of Stone spirit to last for 48 weeks!

Last night the campers celebrated Motzei Shabbat with wonderful activities, including Spa night, Night Swim, Upsherin Party (for a tzevet member in desperate need of a haircut 🙂 ), Lip Sync Dance Party & Sports Activities.

Today, after shiur, nikayon, and an exciting “breakout”, the campers are having a wonderful tiyul to a park with boating and wide open space for sports and hanging out. Tonight there will be an exciting surprise at camp waiting for them when they return!

*Machal* celebrated a beautiful shabbat with the rest of the Machane and had a wonderful Cake-War Party in honor of their beloved Rosh – Galya – who is making aliyah, a “Galiyah Party”! Today they are hiking to a local ice-cream parlor and will have a big Chavrutah-fest in which they are all paired up and learn together. They will also discuss the values and unique experience of being a tzevet member next year BH!

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.


Yakov & Estee, Co-Directors
