Tues July 9 – CW I

DATE: July 9, 2019

Tel Aviv vs. Jersualem is in high gear here in machane Stone. Although everyone was probably taught that “it doesn’t matter who wins or loses, it’s all about the fun” – seems like right now it’s about “go, go,go, go, go, go…fight, fight, fight, fight, fiht, fight…win, win, win, win, win, win…go, fight, win!!” Ha!

Each day shiur focuses on some aspects of each team. After the shiur time, the two teams had a busy day!! Meetings, marches, decorating the Chadar Ochel for meals, sports for all Eidot by gender, a huge camp-wide dodge ball game and tonight a really fun hour of crazy relay races, we call here “Olympiada”!

Everyone is having so much fun and contributing their talents and strengths towards the final presentations which include singing, art, drama, and dance.

Day 2 tomorrow! Stay tuned and daven hard!

Machal spent their day in DC advocating for holocaust education in schools. That special experience was followed by a tour of the monuments, and then a drive to a Hershey, PA campground.

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
