Happy Tuesday everyone! Or as we say here at camp, “What day is today?” Can you believe we’re already in our 4th week of camp? We only have a few more full days left in this session. I know I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again. Time flies when we’re having fun! Speaking of which, here’s a link to our week 3 video for your enjoyment: https://youtu.be/vyXIHrcyXe4
After several weeks of fantastic weather, I guess just like high Fitbit steps, all good things have to come to an end,…or at least take a break. Today we finally had some rain sporatically throughout the day into the mid-afternoon. Some activities were affected until 2nd minor when it seemed to have stopped raining for the day.
This morning our waterfront department started a Polar Bear Club. Every morning just before wake up at 7:45am our campers who passed their swim tests are welcome to come down to the lake for a quick dip in the water. About a dozen kids join our lifeguards this morning and they said it was a lot of fun. It’s a great way to wake up and start the day, huh?
Here at ILC we hosted the 10th & 11th grade Wayne County Boys Volleyball Tournament. We have indoor facilities so the rain didn’t inhibit any game playing. This was the 2nd of the two tournaments that we host every summer in different age groups for the boys. Today was the older campers’ turn to play against approximately 5 other camps in the area. Our boys played hard and almost made it into the finals.
This afternoon we had a girls’ 6th & 7th grade lacrosse game here at camp against another Wayne County camp. We were also supposed to participate in an Outdoor Adventure Field Trip at a local camp this afternoon but it got rained out. This competition consisted of mountain biking, archery, and climbing so it was rescheduled for next week.
I have the winners of yesterday’s beginner and intermediate skatepark competition. Skateboarding Beginners: 3rd place- Maya, 2nd place- Nathan, 1st place- Skyler.

A reminder of yesterday’s riddle: How much dirt is in a hole 4 feet deep and 2 feet wide? Answer: None! Hahaha! Ok, here’s today’s riddle: What odd number becomes even when beheaded? Hmmm, this is a thinker,…
Theater, circus, magic, dance, and music rehearsals are winding down as we begin our performance week tonight. Abracadabra and a 5, 6, 7, 8! We kick off this special week with our MAGIC & DANCE SHOW for evening activity in the theater.
Today’s special feature is yesterday’s HALLOWEEN evening activity and festivities! The haunted house was actually pretty scary! I walked through it last night to take some photos. The first several pics below are of our staff working in the dark haunted house. It just doesn’t look dark and scary because of my world-class point and shoot camera flash. Enjoy and until tomorrow, ILCUTHERE!
