This past Saturday was Open House here at Island Lake for our new campers and it was a FANTASTIC DAY for all! So many excited new campers showed up with their families and took the opportunity to meet one another, meet some of our staff, tour camp, and play games together. We loved meeting our rookie Island Lakers and we’re that much more pumped for June 25th to get here already. We hope all of our campers are, as well.
With only 12 days until our opening day of camp, more and more staff have been arriving for training in their specific departments. All staff will be here by June 17th for our full camp staff orientation week.
We’re sure many of our parents are now in full “camp mode” as you pack and prepare your children for their amazing ILC experience this upcoming summer. Just a reminder that our packing list and equipment list are right here on our website under “Families” and “forms & mailings.” Any outstanding Medical Forms must be completed and returned to us ASAP, prior to your children’s arrival here at camp.
By now you should have received your luggage tags and bus stop information packet. Please be sure to place your children’s tags on each of their 2 duffels so we can transport the bags to their appropriate bunks upon arrival. Remember, all luggage goes to camp on the buses with our campers.
Tomorrow you can start calling camp to set up your children’s phone appointments for summer. The phones are closed the first week of the session and then each child can call home once (per session). See your Parent Handbook for more details. Once you have dates and times in mind, just give us a call here at camp at 570-798-2550.
If you have any last minute camp questions, feel free to call us any time. Until camp begins, our office is open daily until 5pm with a break for lunch from 12-12:45pm. Once camp begins we’re open daily until 9pm.
Enjoy some photos below from our Open House this past Saturday. Lots of excited, new, happy campers joining us this summer. We CANNOT WAIT for everyone to arrive for an amazing, fantastic, out of this world ILC summer! In 12 more days, ILCUTHERE!!!
