Hey Island Lake Families! Wow, 1 more full day left in this session before our first changeover day on Saturday. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, time sure does fly by when we’re having fun. Even with an extra week in our 1st session for the second summer now, blink your eyes twice and it’s already over (Cue sad music and tears). For those of you with children coming home on Saturday, I hope they have only amazing ILC experiences to share with you.
Do I even need to tell you once again that today was yet another day of blue skies and temps in the 70’s here in the 18462? We woke up to some cool, brisk temps but it warmed up nicely into the afternoon hours. There is not a cloud to be seen, only bright blue above.
I’d like to fill you in on some info I received yesterday after the blog was already posted. Our 8th & 9th grade boys’ volleyball team came in 2nd place out of 8 camps. Yay! One of our mixed doubles tennis teams took home 1st place in the finals. Congrats to Sarah F. and David P. on their win! Last night two boys bunks from group 2 camped out under the stars in tent city. I saw them first thing this morning and they were so excited about their adventures. They built a fire without their counselors’ help, which was a huge feat for them.
In sports news today, our 10th & 11th grade girls’ volleyball team went out of camp this morning to play in the big Wayne County tournament. We also had an out of camp 8th & 9th grade girls’ volleyball tournament out of camp this afternoon. Our 6th & 7th grade girls played softball out of camp this morning. They lost by 1 run but said it was a close game the entire time. Lastly, the ILC Tennis Open winds down with the finals approaching.
Today’s riddle: What is higher without a head than with? Yesterday’s riddle was: As I walked along the path I saw something with four fingers and one thumb, but it was not flesh, fish, bone, or fowl. What is it? Give up? A glove!
Tonight’s evening activity is the much anticipated, super duper greatest extravaganza, that some may even call the greatest show on earth. Yup, that’s right, it’s the Island Lake Circus Show! And I think you can guess what the theme will be. The Greatest Showman!
Last night’s younger children’s play, “The Wizard of Oz”, was a huge success! Wow, we have some talented children at this camp!!! Their acting and singing skills entertained the audience throughout the entire show as they followed the yellow brick road to Emerald City. Enjoy some of the photos below as well as in CampMinder and until tomorrow, ILCUTHERE!
