Wednesday July 3

DATE: July 4, 2019

Everyone had a little extra sleep this morning, post-Chutz. Happy Rosh Chodesh! After a longer-than-usual tefillah in honor of Rosh Chodesh (day 1 of 2) we ate breakfast and then had our shiur about learning in yeshiva full-time after high school vs. combining learning with army service. Discussions like these give our chanichim a taste of the culture and society and all the complex issues that arise in a Jewish state. Raising these “not simple issues” means that the chanichim have a chance to hear many sides of an issue and practice talking out many sides, weighing pro’s and con’s etc. Shiur this session has been very engaging – thanks to Yael and Matthew Lillianthal-Kritz for the shiurim they prepare, as our Roshei Chinuch.

The day was full of both regular peulot as well as some good ol’ shower time to get clean from the Chutz 🙂

Tonight, dinner was served a little earlier than usual. Eidot Bet, Gimmel and Daled were taken to ice skating after, and Eidot Aleph and Vav had a special night tochnit: Boys had a 3-3 basketball tournament and girls had night swim!

Pictures of all of that fun will be up soon 🙂

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
