January Parent News

Hey ILC Parents!  Happy New Year!  As we sit here in our winter office with the chill outside, it feels as though summer 2013 is a distant, yet fond, memory.  Fortunately, our countdown for summer 2014 has already kicked into gear and our opening day of camp will emerge upon us before we know it.

Our camp reunion on November 23rd 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.  The reunion never seems to last long enough, unfortunately.  Time flies when we’re having fun catching up with many of our Island Lakers.  Check out our reunion photos posted right here on our website, on our Facebook page, as well as on our ILC App.

An ILC App, you may be asking yourself?  Yup, that’s right, we now has our very own app for the iPhone & iPad.  You can get lost in it for hours browsing photos from last summer, photos from the reunion, reading our blogs, reading former newsletters, etc.  It will be particularly helpful to you come next summer while you’re child is at camp with us.  You’ll be able to take care of viewing daily photos, sending emails, etc. at the touch of your phone.  So definitely download our Island Lake App when you have a moment.  Well worth adding to your iPhone or iPad.

A reminder to our summer ‘13 and ’14 families, don’t forget to read our monthly newsletters.  You can access them here on our website, as well as in your postal mailbox at the start of every month.  Our newsletters provide important information for parents as well as campers, including enrollment and availability updates.

Speaking of enrollment, if you have not yet registered your child for summer ‘14 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 loyal campers so let’s avoid that from happening.  You can register your child with the registration form mailed to you with your newsletter or you can download the form here on our website under “Island Lake Families” and then “Forms & Mailings” (on the left-hand side of the page).  It only takes a few minutes to fill out the registration form, we promise!  For those of you who registered your campers prior to December 1st, keep an eye on your mailbox (the snail mail kind) for your child’s special edition ILC t-shirt that will arrive sometime in January.

To all current Island Lake families, we look forward to an amazing summer 2014 with your children.  To all previous or prospective families, feel free to contact us if you have any questions after browsing our website:  800-869-6083 or 914-769-6060.

And last but not least, to one and to all,…..Happy New Year and ILC U THERE!
