Happy Neon Day! Today our campers and staff are all wearing neon colors just for fun. You’ll see lots of neon in today’s daily summer photos so warning, you may want to put on your shades before viewing them! (wink wink!)

Holy cow, there are only 2 more full days left in the 2nd session! Where has this summer gone? The saying is definitely true, time flies when you’re having fun! We hope your children are all having the most remarkable, amazing, fantastic, extraordinary, spectacular, wonderful, memorable summer with us here at Island Lake this summer. We’re sure they’ll come home and share tons of great stories with you. It’s just hard to believe that their wait for next summer will have to start all over again.

Let’s just focus on the here and now since our ILC summer is going so incredibly well. The change in the weather from 1st to 2nd session has definitely been in our favor. Today was another beautiful day in Starrucca, PA. The morning started off cool in the 60’s and then it warmed up to the mid-70’s. Perfect summer weather here in the Pocono Mountains!

Our canoe & kayaking campers went on an overnight river trip today. They left this morning and they’ll return tomorrow morning. Looks like they’ll have perfect weather for this fun experience.

Today in sports, our 6th grade boys played basketball out of camp this morning. Our 7th grade boys played in a flag football tournament at another camp this morning, as well. This afternoon our 9th grade girls played in the finals in the Wayne County tennis tournament at another camp. We won a few matches but unfortunately we didn’t win overall. The girls fought a good fight and played very well.

Our photographer took sibling photos today after lunch so you’ll be able to view them on CampMinder. Since some kids are out of camp, don’t be upset if your children aren’t in the pictures. There are definitely some siblings on the overnight river trip and we’ll try to capture them with their other sibling tomorrow when they return. Today’s special feature is Sibling Photos!

Tonight’s evening activity is the younger campers show, Free to Be ILC. It’s an Island Lake version of Free to Be You & Me. I hear it’s going to be the cutest thing ever so I’m very excited to see it. We’ll have lots of pictures to show you tomorrow and if your children are in the show, you’ll have an opportunity to order a copy of the video on dvd after the summer.

I’ll be back tomorrow with more Island Lake scoop. Until then, ILC U THERE!
