Greetings from Camp Stone!

The campers enjoyed a beautiful night last night at the chutz site, which included dinner and smores at the fire pit, building a structure out of natural found materials, connecting with their inter-eidah “plugah”, and relaxing and resting. They were treated to a star-gazing adventure by Beni Shiller with the help of his telescope and the beautiful open sky uninterrupted by artificial light. The campers woke up to unexpected rain and returned back to camp for tefila and a chance to sleep in and catch up on some sleep after the eventful overnight. They retained their wonderful camp spirit and positive energy despite the change in plans. The campers were treated to bowling or a movie in the movie theater and Eidah Daled returned to the – wet but beloved – Chutz site for never-ending breakfast and Master Chef challenges – fire-pit style.

Before The campers visited an immersive shiur experience as the field was divided into 4 areas, representing different parts of Eretz Yisrael. In each location, they were immersed in a skit that dramatized a story from Tanach that occurred took place during the time of Shoftim/ Shmuel 1. In Minacheh, Ever HaYarden, they encountered Yiftach who explained his rationale for settling outside of Eretz Yisrael proper. Throughout Israel, they encountered Shimshon the Nazir, Barak & Yael, and Calev & Go-el Hadam.

Today we said good-bye to our beloved and adorable *Kaytana* campers. They all received a personalized Tanach to celebrate and remember the beautiful and impactful stories that learned and shared together.

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
