The Village is up and running peulot all day!! Let me explain: each summer we have a very special corner of camp that hosts activites related to such arts as blacksmithing, glassblowing, wood working and baking in a brick oven. This session the village is called Talpiot and represents the neighborhood in Jerusalem which hosts many businesses, factories and warehouses. The chanichim are creating projects with our staff as well as with a professional glass blower and blacksmith – I will leave the nature of the project as a surprise, of course 🙂 In addition to these special “lost arts” we have a planetarium (yes, a real one), first-aid instruction (like MADA in Israel) and a workshop about water filtration. Everything is contextualized within the historical period we are in, 1947-1979. Hopefully, with that informaton, when you view pictures online you will hopefully understand more of what you are seeing. It is definitely the most hands-on experiential learning your child has ever done!

Kaytana had their Yetziat Mitzrayim today by doing some fun water activties in the lake and went on to prepare for Matan Torah by making chumash book-covers.

Machal walked an 8-mile trail, known as Tracey Ridge, in the Allegheny forest, and then slept outside in those Great Outdoors.

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
