Home, sweet home!

Each eidah returned to machane this morning, after another round of tefillah, cereal & milk and shiur at the Chutz site. It felt so good to be back and the best part was a long hot shower 🙂 Chanichim looked so clean at lunch!!

We had a few peulot in the afternoon – some time to enjoy the camp facilities  – and then away we went again! This time it was on busses though! We enjoyed a night at the Skating Arena in Jamestown, NY nearby.

Everyone had dinner, time to skate on their state-of-the-art rink and ice cream for dessert! A “chill” time was had by all 😉

Machal made their way back from DC, with a stop in Harrisburg Pa, for a minor league baseball game. After the game they were allowed onto the field and even had some interesting schmoozes with some of the players…it was a great way to break up the long bus ride back to Sugar Grove.

Looking forward to hikes on Friday and a beautiful Shabbat Nachamu!

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
