Thursday July 5

DATE: July 6, 2018

Our day started with a shiur about our relationship with non-Jews who live in Eretz Yisrael. The chanichim studied sources from psukim that speak about idol worshippers to the more modern sources that speak about the type of monotheistic non-Jew that lives in our country today.

Once the chanichim had gone through what seeemed to be a normal day, they received surprise news at shekem – as a bucket of ice was poured of the Rosh Mosh by the Sgan, they were told they were going ice skating!!

Younger kids went first after an early dinner and the older kids had the second later shift. Enjoy the pictures 🙂

Meanwhile, eidah daled had a slightly special schedule today as they returned to our chutz site and were able to re-light the wood and have “the never ending breakfast” that was rained out yesterday. With ingredients like bread and eggs, the possibilities kept them busy for a while 🙂 They joined the rest of the camp later in the day…

Machal spent a fun day at Hershey Park and returned via Harrisburg, PA where they davened Mincha with Kriat haTorah, since they were unable to do that this morning. They will be sleeping in their own beds tonight. Big Treat 🙂

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
