Today was Day #2 of Color War! Both teams – Chachamim & Chashmonim – displayed great ruach and sportsmanship throughout the friendly but fierce competitions. There were many different ways to get involved, including educational and learning opportunities such as Biur Tefila, Halacha Yomit, Chidon, & Shaat Shut. Different sporting events included: soccer, agam, basketball, volleyball, climbing wall, ultimate frisbee, football, kickball, & dodgeball. A highlight of the sporting events is the Apache Relay which spans throughout the camp and involves many campers in various competitions.

Creative projects abound, including murals, dances, cheers, marches, & decorating the chadar ochel to reflect each theme. It was amazing to see the chadar ochel transformed into a Bet HaMikdash! And, we had the quietest meal ever at Camp Stone when there was a silent contest. Color War at Camp Stone is a high energy synthesis of learning, cheering, creating, sporting, & connecting with others.

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
