Friday, July 1st

Happy July 1st! Today we’re back to our majors and minors after spending an amazing Lazy Day at Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom yesterday. Our campers had such a fantastic day at Dorney, both on rides of all sizes and in the water park. It was the perfect day, weather-wise, for a trip to an amusement/water park. We took the kids in the nice coach buses so it was an easy trip to/from Allentown, PA. Hopefully you’ll receive wonderful feedback from your children in the form of letters, telling you all about this fun-filled day out of camp.

Today we woke up to partly cloudy skies and temps in the upper 60’s. The weather has been a bit odd and quite mixed, ranging from sunny skies to drops of rain here and there, with temps in the low 70’s. All activities took place, as the rain was very brief and next to nothing in accumulation of any kind.

We had our first intercamp game today! Our cute little 5th grade boys went out of camp to play basketball at a nearby Wayne County camp. Go Island Lakers!

Tonight’s evening activity is GROUPS! Here’s a breakdown of what everyone is going to do here at camp: Boys Groups 1 & 2- they will play Capture the Flag together; Boys Group 3- they will play a fun game of Dodgeball (or 2 games or 3 or,…well, you got the idea); Boys Group 4- they are having a Campfire with girls group 4. And on the girls side: Girls Groups 1 & 2- they will play Gaga together in our fab Gaga pit; Girls Group 3- Cupcake War (I’ll explain more in a moment); Girls Group 4- they will have a campfire with boys group 4. Cupcake Wars is pretty basic. The activity consists of every camper receiving their very own cupcake to decorate however they choose. It will be a bunk by bunk competition so the bunk with the best looking cupcakes wins. “What does the winner get” you ask? Why, bragging rights but of course.

Today’s blog feature is a medley of photos from our trip to Dorney Park yesterday. Enjoy the start to your 4th of July holiday weekend and until tomorrow, ILC U THERE!
