DATE: August 15, 2019

Last night, was a close competition with loud and spirited cheering and creative performances. Each team – Chachamim & Chashmonim – proudly performed a Daglanut March, Glow Dance, and Rikud. They also presented their creative projects, including the bench, mechitza, & shelet, that will enhance the decor of camp. It was a late and energetic night!

Today in shiur, the campers explored the sectarianism and the different factions of Judaism that formed at the end of the second temple period. They discussed the important challenge: how do we relate to other jews who are different from us?

Today, Eidah Daled left early in the morning for an adventurous and team-building white water rafting trip. The rest of the camp is ready to board the busses for the beloved Midway State Park, which is one of the oldest amusement parks in the US to operate constantly. This annual trip is a great opportunity for campers to enjoy the rides, their friends, and the delicious picnic lunch. The campers will then enjoy dinner together in a different park.

Have a great day!

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
