Tuesday, August 8

DATE: August 8, 2023
Yesterday saw a full day of peulot for the entire camp — this included candlemaking in the Melechet Yad, telescope-making in the Village, and tie-dye wars – where bunks create beautiful t-shirts while running around squirting each other with tie-dye. The day ended with another glorious dinner and night tochnit — there was lots of cheering in the chadar ochel, as the bunks have really built a strong connection and bunk and eidah identity. It was also the last day of activities for Kaytana, and they had time to buy Stoneware, and pack up, and their last night included a big carnival with blow-up trampoline, etc. We are so sad the Kaytana chanichim are leaving and are so looking forward to having them all here again in 11 and 1/2 months!
Today, following a morning shiur about passion and “dveykut” in Judaism, the whole camp (Eidot Alef – Daled) headed to the Machane Chutz! A 3-day, 2-night overnight in the beautiful nature of Sugar Grove, PA.
Eidot Alef – Daled had beautiful weather for being outdoors and are having THE best time!! They played frisbee, set up their sleeping bags, played games, and gathered wood for campfires. So many photos coming!! Each camper is part of a “plugah” that works together on the chutz, creating opportunities for inter-Edah bonding, and ultimately grilled burgers for dinner at their very own fire pits. Last night was also a beautifully clear night, in which campers on the Chutz could look up and see the stars, the Milky Way, and even participate in a star-gazing activity.
Machal drove to Washington, DC and visited some memorials (e.g. the Lincoln Memorial) and had a sicha about making a difference in the world. Tomorrow they will spend the day in D.C.

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.


Yakov & Estee, Co-Directors
