Shavua Tov!

Machal headed out, last night after havdalah, for their four days canoeing down the James River in Virgina. They have been planning for this for a few weeks now, with all of the team-building and outdoor-living, and we are so excited to hear about their experience! They were so excited!

Since the Motzei Shabbat post-havdalah night activities went late, we were all treated to a slightly postponed wake-up this morning. Eidot Aleph-Daled experienced some Jewish history today (what else is new?) In addition to their climbing wall activities, Village peulot, swimming, ceramics, sports and horse-back riding (and Chugim – those electives that they have three times a week), they received some edicts from the Greeks – like no more learning Torah and no more Shabbat. They came from “Ari-ochus”, our Rosh Plugah Ari Eizen who got roped into the drama unfolding. A team started forming with our other Rosh Plugah, Chana Fischer, to fight the Greeks and have a “Chana”kah 🙂

Miracles happened, the Jews won (as you all expected to hear, I’m sure) and we celebrated with a carnival tonight in Indoor World – A Bouncy Castle and other inflatables, and of course popcorn and other fun foods! Chag Sameach everyone!

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
