It’s Color War at Camp Stone! Last night after the highly energizing, fun, and ruach-filled song and flash-dance with DJ Raphi, Color War broke out. The two teams are Chashmonim and Chachamim who coexisted 250 years after the Maccabbee revolt. The Chashmonim represent the Hellenized political leaders who centralized around the bet HaMikdash and expanded Israel’s territory. The Chachamim promoted the Oral Torah and are working on decentralizing the Bet HaMikdash and the role of material wealth.

Today the campers enjoyed various competitions, such as the Agam, kickball, football, baking, soccer, high ropes, swim, volleyball, dodgeball, and basketball. Each team also started working on various creative projects, including the mechiza, shelet, decorating the chadar ochel, memes, shiur, cheers, divrei Torah, and more, which are inspired by their respective themes. The campers finished the day with a spirited Olympiada!

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
