Tuesday June 21 – Opening Tochnit!!!

DATE: June 22, 2022

Welcome back to Camp Stone everyone!!

The staff has been preparing for almost a week and could not be more ready and more excited!

The chanichim came off the bus and were met by posters and cheering hadracha – old friends hugged and new friends introduced themselves.

This month your children will be learning about the period in Jewish history between King Chizkiyahu all the way until the destruction of the second Beit HaMikdash.

This evening, everyone met “King Chizkiyahu” and his prophet “Yoshiyahu” as they were preaching to the nation about stopping to worship idols. The chanichim smashed some idols…which had candy in them 😉 They all helped to paint on some new walls for the Beit HaMikdash and enjoyed the meat from the Korban pesach that was brought. Everyone danced and sang their way to Mincha in the Outdoor Beit Knesset, which looked a lot like the Mikdash today! With all of this in mind, you wlll make sense of the pictures you will be seeing soon in our photo gallery.

Tonight is all about unpacking, learning names and starting to come together as a group/bunk. Stay tuned for the updates on Kaytana and Machal too! Everyone is doing well and getting comfortable.

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
