Another amazing day at Machane Stone!

The entire Machane returned early from the Chutz this morning, and after tefillah and breakfast, everyone got cleaned up, showering off two nights of camping out, and ready for a day of peulot! With everyone refreshed, and the raindrops moving out, it was back to the fun, with many activities today, including high ropes, ceramics, and water trampoline in the Agam.

At Shekem time, while campers munched on ice cream snacks, etc., a debate was staged that was created by our encounter with the Enlightenment — should we stick with traditional way of life? Or should we except new ways of being a Jew? Except that this debate was phrased as “should we only eat Tradition soup, or should we except new soups?”

After dinner, it was an evening of special activities — Eidot Aleph and Vav went bowling, while Eidot Bet, Gimmel, and Daled went ice skating. Look out for special photo folders for these group events!

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
