December Parent News

Hey Island Lake families! We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. With winter just about here, it is our hope that your children still have “camp on the brain,” and continue to share their wonderful ILC summer 2017 memories with you. Our countdown for next summer has already kicked into gear and opening day of camp will emerge upon us before we know it. As of December 1st, only 204 days until summer 2017 at Island Lake will be here!

Our camp reunion on November 18th at Sportime USA was a huge success! Screams of excitement filled the air as campers and staff embraced one another. We had a fantastic turnout, including children who flew in from other parts of the country just to see their camp friends. Pretty cool, huh? The reunion never seems to last long enough. Time flies when we’re having fun catching up with many of our Island Lakers. Check out our reunion photos posted our website’s home page as well as on our Facebook page. Below is a sneak peak at some of our smiling faces.

By now all of our summer 2017 camp families should have received an email with a link to our amazing ILC video yearbook located online on Vimeo. If you need another copy of the link, feel free to contact us at and we’d be happy to help you out. We hope you and your children have taken the opportunity to watch this super fun video yearbook filled with many exciting summer activities and memories. For an hour, you can forget about all that’s going on around you to truly feel a part of the ILC experience. We hear some children have been watching it on loop over and over again!

Reminders to all families, returning and new, don’t forget to read our monthly newsletters. They are located right here on our website, as well as in your regular postal mailbox at the start of every month. Our newsletters provide important information for you, including enrollment and availability updates. If you’d like to read our newsletter on our website, you can simply go to, click “Island Lake Families” at the top of the page, and then “ILC News” on the left-hand side of the page. You can also click the following link to view our newsletters since summer:

Speaking of enrollment, if you have not yet registered your children for summer 2018 but plan to do so, please, please, please do not put it off any longer. Some bunks are now completely full. We truly do not want to turn away our loyal campers, so let’s avoid that from happening. You can register your children with the registration form mailed to you with your monthly newsletter or you can download the form here on our website under “Island Lake Families” and then “Forms & Mailings”.

With all of the winter cheer around us, we wish you and your families a spectacular holiday season! Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, and a happy and healthy New Year to all! ILC U THERE in 2018!
