Today was our first ever Rookie Day and we could not have asked for a better day! The weather has been absolutely beautiful with the sun shining and the temps in the upper 70’s/low 80’s. Our rookies had fun meeting other rookies, campers, and trying out many of the activities we offer here at ILC. They tried circus, gymnastics, beach soccer, magic, arts & crafts, ropes course, cooking, sports monsters, video scavenger hunt, and we ended the day with a magic show and a big pool party. We loved meeting so many future Island Lakers and we look forward to our next Rookie Day in another week from now.
In regular Island Lake news, today was a big tubing trip down the Delaware River. A bus load of children enjoyed the morning into early afternoon tubing down the river. We also had lots of sports going on in and out of camp. Boys 8th & 9th grade soccer, girls 9th & 10th grade tennis, boys 6th &7th grade soccer, girls 8th grade and 11th grade volleyball, and boys 7th grade tennis.
Tonight we’re kicking off our performance week with a Magic Show. From now until the end of the session our campers will be performing for their friends and counselors in theater, dance, music, circus, & magic. We video tape every performance so don’t worry mom and dad, you can order copies of each show on dvd after the summer.
Today’s special features is a double doozie,…ROOKIE DAY (photos above) and our favorite lakeside activity, ROCK SHOP!
Have a great evening and until tomorrow, ILC U THERE!
