Tuesday July 4

DATE: July 4, 2017

The campers are all really enjoying the Chutz, cooking food, hanging out and being creative, crafty and resourceful 🙂

They love the ability to gather around their fire pit each meal time with representatives from each eidah, with eidah daled girls and boys as the Roshei Plugah (group). This is the first real leadership being exercised by eidah daled and their roshei eidah, Elisha and Yonina (who prepped them Motzei Shabbat), say they are doing an excellent job including everyone and being responsible. 

Shiur today was done in these special chutz multi-age plugah groups. The shiur teachers went around, in character, acting as four people from the Crusade period, talking to the children about life back then and some of the challenges and unique questions that arose in the jewish community. Each plugah met each of the four time travelers for a few minutes! 

Chanichim (campers) had peulot at the Chutz site, but some bunks also returned to work on their “Village” projects and have their time at the archaeological dig.

Shekem was brought out to the Chutz this afternoon, which was a welcome refreshing and cool treat! 

Yehuda Katz, our musician-in-residence this week, played a concert for the whole machane tonight. Such an inspiring and fun treat!!

Enjoy the pictures – remember the more sweaty, tired and dirty looking your child appears …the more fun he or she is having 🙂

Tomorrow they return to camp, and their first stop will be…showers!!

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
