Thursday June 20

DATE: June 21, 2019

We had a late start today due to some heavy early-morning rains. Everyone had some extra sleep and time in the bunk before Shacharit. But once we got started, we were busy, busy, busy all day! Each bunk had time to work on their presentation for bunk night, where they will present and explain their bunk name (through a song or a skit) and show everyone their sign that they painted. The prep for bunk night was a perfect rainy day activity and gave the chanichim and chanichot a chance to be creative and contribute their ideas and talents. Each shiur teacher spent shiur time today discussing the bunk name and background.

After Mincha, everyone met their Shabbat Chavruta. Each Shabbat, after lunch, each and every tzevet and hadracha member learns with 2 or 3 campers. The campers will often have an idea of something they want to learn, but often they get to know each other first and then decide together. Now that every chanich and chanicha know his/her chavruta, they are very excited for that post-lunch session on Shabbat day 🙂

Kaytana learned about Yitzchak and Rivka today and talked about the chessed tht Rivka practiced. They made challah boards to bring home, after discssuing the merits and memories of Sarah and the role that Rivka played while trying to set up a people/family outside of Eretz Yisrael.

Machal camped out last night and enjoyed a rainy day today too! They went roller-blading and then saw the new Aladdin movie.

Everyone is so excited for Shabbat #1 but first…Friday hikes tomorrow!!

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
