Tuesday June 25

DATE: June 26, 2024

Today we learned about Karaites and the their rejection of Oral Law.

Hot off the presses: The Village opened today!!

For all who don’t know, “the village” is at the northwest corner of camp, in the woods…it is a small world of ancient activities and arts. Each session in camp we give it a name, a time in history and invite the chanichim into that world. This month the Village is Cordoba, a city in Spain during “the Golden Age of Spain,” an era the chanichim learned about in Shiur. Each bunk will have a few chances to visit the Village. This month’s activities are: micrography, candle-making, ancient medieval games, grape juice making from fresh grapes (with our hands to actually drink, and then “just for fun” with our feet!!), leather book marks, glass washing cups in our glassblowing studio, coat hooks with our blacksmith, pita in our brick oven and fried donuts (invented during this time we are studying).

In Kaytana, the chanichim went back a little, to before Yosef, and had a wedding with Yaakov and Rachel  -dancing, good food, decorations, the works!! Their peulot included volleyball, swim, and music for the banim and dance, slip n’s slide and beading for the banot.

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
