The campers enjoyed another amazing day at Camp Stone!
The campers participated in a wide range of peulot including ceramics, sports, swim, dance, improv, slip n’ slide, dance, highropes & zipline, refet (petting zoo and small farm), baking, and making lemon nana from the fresh herbs grown in the vegetable garden and hothouse at camp.
The theme of “Conquering Eretz Yisrael” continued to be experienced through skits and engaging activities throughout the day. Now that Bnei Yisrael has crossed over into Eretz Yisrael, they are actively engaged in conquering and settling the land. Before lunch, the campers attended Yehoshua’s 110th b-day party and heard his final speech. Later, the campers were scheduled to participate in an exciting scavenger hunt as each Eidah, which is identified with a different shevet, settled their designated land. After a sun-filled day of activities, there was a rainstorm at night. To the backdrop of the rain, the campers enjoyed a spontaneous kumzitz in the Chadar Ochel!
Meanwhile, Stone’s youngest adorable campers in Kaytana, have been enjoying all of the same wonderful peulot as their fellow campers. They’ve also been enjoying their own unique theme – experientially learning the different stories from the Torah. They have enjoyed smashing Terach’s idols (ie pinatas with yummy treats) and decorating cakes to graciously give to guests that they welcomed into Avraham and Sarah’s tent. Today, they participated in a spirited (and developmentally appropriate) dramatization of Akeidat Yitzchak. The Kaytana campers are enjoying being part of the big camp – with its incredible ruach and diversity of immersive experiences and activities – while also enjoying a program that perfectly suits their interests and needs.
Looking forward to tomorrow’s Tiyulim, special hikes, which will take place every Friday!
