DATE: June 25, 2021

Last night, we all celebrated the coronation of King Shaul with our LINA – each eidah headed out to an area in the woods around camp and made a bonfire to grill food, followed by lots of singing and fun and a night-out under the stars. Tefillah in the morning was back at camp, and then a regular day of peulot…including something new. Picture this: Slip N’ Slide kickball!! It does not get any more fun!

Tensions rose between David and Goliath today, at the Shekem Shack at 4:30, but b”h David took down the enemy.

The real news here is that we hosted DJ Raphi last night for an amazing hour of singing, dancing and so much fun! He flew in from Israel just to help us create a video with everyone dancing to the song אם תרצי by Chanan Ben-Ari. He sent us the dance moves in a video, a week ago, and each bunk had a peulah to learn them – we were ready!! After we sang that song with the dance moves a few times, it turned into a fun chagigah-styled party with everyone enjoying themselves and being entertained and impressed by DJ Raphi’s energy, creativity and infectious joy. Thank you Yakov and Estee for making that happen! It was such a treat! And Tzevet had their own “after-party” with him for another hour 🙂

 

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
