Day Two of Color War: Navi vs. Melech (prophet vs. king)

After the shiur about prophecy and the role of the prophet in our nation, we began our day of competition (friendly, of course, but fierce nontheless!)

Chanichim are giving it their all, dressed in team colors and wearing face paint, they are volunteering to help out wherever needed – some can swim fast, others play ball, some are quick on the high ropes etc. In the afternoon, we had the Chidon – where each team has to answer Torah and Halacha questions as well as questions that review the shiurim we have learned this session. After shekem, we started the relay race that usually takes over an hour but this year got rained out half-way through 🙁 We all gathered in the chadar ochel, accounted for everyone, and then had a cheer-off!

The night tochnit was the presentation of all the projects and dances each team had been preparing – a skit, a boys’ rikud, a flag-dance (daglanut), a glow-in-dark dance, cheers, and lots of painting projects! We were all in Indoor World and the energy was super-high!! Everyone really enjoyed and was so supportive and proud of all of their team presentations.

We are all winners after those two days!!

When the points were tallied  – Team Navi was declared the official winner of Color War 2021 Session 1. Congrats!!

Next up – an extra hour of sleep!! Wake-up Thurs morning is 8:30 a.m. not 7:30 – now that is exciting news for this blog 🙂

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
