Report from the first day of Color War: Navi vs. Melech

Today’s shiur was about the role of king, using Achav as our example. Tomorrow we will focus on the role of navi. Shiur is all about Torah learning and a time-out from the competition 🙂

After team meetings this morning, there were two rounds of sporting events. Campers were on the climbing wall, at the agam, in the pool, on the basketball court, on the kickball and football fields, playing dodgeball in Indoor World, on the high ropes and even baking in the kitchen. Different eidot and genders were assigned different games and challenges and points were recorded.

We had team marches and cheers before lunch of course, and then a dance party in Indoor World where teams were judged on (and I quote from the schedule) ” attendance, vigor and overall fun”! After that warm-up there was a HUGE machanayim game, with everyone playing, and then another round of sporting events (again, in the pool, on the courts, at the climbing wall etc)

After more meetings, pre-dinner marches and dinner served by Team Melech (lunch had been served by team Navi), everyone davened maariv and then went to Indoor World for an hour of races, challenges and minute-to-win-it style competition.

It was a long day, and everyone is having fun! Chanichim have been working on all of the projects and presentations, and we cannot wait to see those tomorrow. Also, we know the Apache Race will be epic, as always!! Stay tuned for more Color War updates soon….

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
