Aaaahhhh…back home!! 

The campers davened, ate breakfast and had shiur at the Chutz and then returned to machane for lunch 🙂

Their shiur today was, again, by plugah group. This time, they covered four halachik issues that arise only in Galut… e.g the two-day yom tov phenomenon and the status of the law of the foreign government.

The campers were able to enjoy 4 peulot (activities) back in camp today as well as have their chugim (electives).

The night tochnit tonight for all of the younger kids was: “Get into bed early and enjoy a good night sleep” and only older eidot (gimmel and daled) had some sports and fun… but it was optional 😉

Thank G-d for the great weather we enjoyed the last three days and for the hard work done by camp staff and especially eidah daled to give the chanichim an excellent chutz- experience.

Tzevet was “rewarded” tonight with a private staff-only kumzits with our musician-in-residence, Yehuda Katz. Rumor has it that Yakov Fleischmann, camp director, made a guest appearance with his guitar!

 

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
