Happy almost Visiting Day! Holy cow, how did this time of the summer sneak up on us so fast? We’ve been preparing for this very special day and we anticipate that it will be a fantastic day for all. Please peruse yesterday’s blog for more details about tomorrow’s festivities.

Today was another beautiful day here at camp, with temps in the mid-80’s. We reminded our campers to drink lots of water and stay hydrated all day long. We hosted an 8th & 9th grade boys soccer game here at home this morning. Our 6th & 7th grade girls went out of camp to play in a tennis tournament.

Today was the start of another huge tradition here at Island Lake,…WE BROKE COLOR WAR! It was great because no one expected it to be in the middle of the afternoon during snack break. We cancelled 3rd major and 3rd minor in order to start our Color WAR team meetings. Oh I bet you want to know the names of the teams, huh? Well it’s EAST COAST VS. WEST COAST! East Coast is grey and West Coast is blue. Following tomorrow’s Visiting Day, Sunday through Tuesday will be all things Color War! WOOHOO!!!!

Tonight’s evening activity is the amazing, fantastic, superb hypnotist, Brad Henderson! Our campers and staff will witness Brad hypnotize about 20 of our counselors on the theater stage. This is another one of our campers’ favorite evening activities. They get to watch their counselors embarrass themselves while doing hysterically funny things in front of the camp.

Today’s special feature is CANTEEN last night! Until tomorrow, when we’ll see all of your smiling faces bright and early for our annual Island Lake Visiting Day, ILCUTHERE!
