Wednesday July 10th- Color War Day 2

DATE: July 11, 2024

Color War Day 2!

Shiur today was focused on the Mishneh Torah and the Rambam’s revolutionary attempt to transform halacha into an organized, accessible system. We learned about the Mishneh Torah’s structure (it’s divided topically into 14 books, and is subdivided into sections and chapters) and content (it touches on all areas of Jewish life, even laws that are no longer applicable today, such as korbanot). We also learned about how some of the choices the Rambam made to make the Mishneh Torah more accessible, such as omitting sources, later proved controversial.

After spirited team meetings, the morning consisted of two peulot for the sports competitions and games: soccer, b-ball, kickball, races in the pool, ultimate frisbee, dodgeball, agam and more!
In the afternoon, we had a Chidon with questions reviewing shiur topics from this session and a thrilling camp-wide Apache relay race. For the race, each team had people from all the eidot in place at different sites around the machane, ready to do their part when the baton got to them. For example, someone had to shoot 5 foul shots, someone had to shoot an arrow at the target in our archery field,  a swimmer had to swim across the pool, and someone had to zipline across the agam. The last stage of the race (after an hour…) was to run a mile to the finish line! Tosafot crossed the finish line first, but the race is scored in stages, and Rambam earned some points along the way, too.

Team presentations are about to start, in which teams will show off their creative sides through songs, artwork, dances, and skits. Stay tuned for highlights and, of course, the winner!

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
