Wed. July 10 – CW II

DATE: July 11, 2019

Great second day of Color War – Sporting activities and races again but also some new exciting additions: the Chidon (review of the month’s shiurim) and a looooong Apache race with over 30 tasks. So many chanichim/ot were needed! In addition to all these activities, some were busy all day working on the final presentations with Melechet yad (art) staff …

Tonight, in Indoor World, we spent over two hours watching the two teams present a skit, a daglanut dance (classic Israeli culture – a dance with Israeli flags), a team song, a girls’ stomp, a boys’ rikud (old favorite here at Machane Stone) and four art projects: a painted Mechitza for the Beit Knesset, a new sign for the public bathrooms, a holder for “slow shira” Seudah shlishit song sheets and a shelet, a sign made from wood and paint. They put in so muh work and creativity!! They are all beautiful, colorful and great representations of the cities/themes Yerushalayim and Tel Aviv.

Tzevet has been adding to the fun here with their own team and cheers and presentations…and Gan (staff daycamp) kids have been getting in on the pre-meal cheering as well.

It has been non-stop fun here for the past 48 hours…and the winner is… one team has 7, 345 points and the other has 8,046 points!! Drumb roll please…. (hard to wait, right??) Yerushalayim (blue and yellow)!! The counselors from Eidah Daled all hugged and danced before the announcement, and they served as excellent role models for the spirit we have here!! Kol HaKavod to EVERYONE for a very successful and fun Color War!!

We could all use a late kima (wake-up) tomorrow …Here’s hoping!

Machal had a fun day too…at Hershey Amusement Park!

We cannot believe there are only 5 days left 🙁

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
