Thursday July 1

DATE: July 2, 2021

Today we learned about King Shlomo – his leadership, success and wisdom. We watched a skit before lunch about the moment Hashem said he could have anything….and he chose wisdom! We watched him carefully as he used it to solve the dilemma involving two women who each claimed a baby was theirs.

The day was beautiful and packed with activities back in camp – felt like we came “home sweet home” after the two days spent outside at the Chutz site. Bunks are working hard to finish projects in the village and requesting peulot they really love, for a second time before it time to go home 🙁

We had an early dinner and went out ice skating as a fun night tochnit – in two shifts. Eidot Aleph and Vav a little earlier, followed by Eidot bet, Gimmel and Daled. Dinner was dairy , so we could buy ice cream at the rink 🙂

Make-up Machal is out of the Blue Ridge Mts and had a celebratory BBQ tonight, before heading back to camp.

Machal had a meaningful sicha in Pittsburgh and then stopped at Splash Lagoon for a fun activity, on their way back to camp.

Hikes for everyone tomorrow in Eidot Aleph-Daled!!!   Machal and make-up Machal can enjoy the facilities in Machane, while we are gone 🙂

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
