Wednesday July 12 – CW Day 2

DATE: July 13, 2023

Shinun and Svara went at it all day here! Great sportsmanship all around and the eidah daled captains have been including as many chanichim as want to be involved. There are so many ways for everyone to contribute.

Today, after mifkad, tefillah, breakfast, shiur, and 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 loooong apache race that inculded so many tasks. Each team had people 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! Shinun crossed the finish line first, but Svara earned some of the points along the way too.

Tonight’s final presentations were fun and so creative: a boys’ dance, a girls’ glow stick dance, a song by the whole team, a skit, a daglanut (israeli-flag dance), and some art projects! Each team kept cheering and supporting their team.  Look at the pictures that will uploaded. You will be so proud of all the hard work that went into it all!

At the end of the night, the points were tallied and the winner for our 2023 Session One was….SHINUN (blue/grreen)!!!!!!

We are so proud of the whole eidah daled for leading the camp through two really great days, where everyone contributed and had fun! They are all winners to us!

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
