Thurs. July 11

DATE: July 12, 2019

We needed to sleep in!! And some of us did…but not Eidah Daled – they were out of Machane by 5:00 a.m. To celebrate their success as leaders in Color War, they went on the much-anticipated “eidah daled white water rafting trip” and were so excited for it!! They love to be given special experiences (like the midnight hike) and this one is so fun, adventurous and beautiful!! On the way back to Sugar Grove, they stopped in Pittsburgh for pizza 🙂

The rest of machane – Eidot Aleph through Gimmel went to…Midway!! Our small humble amusement park nearby is all we need for a fun day of rides, arcades and …. memories!! They ended their trip day with dinner in a park, and everyone enjoyed spending time together as Tuesday draws near 🙁

Machal went to Penn’s Cave for a special cave tour in boats – so cool!! They followed that up with a AA baseball game in Eerie, PA.

Tomorrow is our fourth Friday!! That means tomorrow night is our fourth inspiring, musical, bonding Kabbalat Shabbat Tefillah – and they keep getting better and better each week 🙂 We are all looking forward to these last few days together.

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
