Saturday, August 2nd

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 thus far.  Today’s weather was kinda iffy & icky all day.  It’s been mostly cloudy with peeks of sun here and there.  We’ve had the threat of rain, but no actual rain to speak of other than drizzles at breakfast this morning.  Last night was another cool night followed by a warm day today with temps in the 70’s.

Our canoe & kayaking campers went on an overnight river trip today.  We hope the weather holds up for them but hey, if not, they’re already in the water getting wet!  Lol!

Today our sports kids took a day trip to Cooperstown to the Baseball Hall of Fame for a day of fun, fudge, and pizza.  Oh yeah, let’s not forget about the educational aspect at the Hall of Fame, too!

Our 5th & 6th grade boys basketball team headed out of camp this morning for a game.  We also offered Quiddish this afternoon for the minor periods.  That’s right, you read this correctly, Quiddish, as in the game from the Harry Potter books.  Bunk Cup points will be awarded to the winning teams and hey, flying broomsticks are optional!

Today’s special feature is ARTS & CRAFTS!  Below are some photos from our art pavilion this afternoon,…

Tonight’s evening activity is the younger campers show, Dear Edwina.  We’re excited to see those little ones perform on stage for their fellow campers and counselors.  You can check out lots of Dear Edwina photos tomorrow on our CampMinder daily summer photos site.

We’re also going to attempt to take some sibling photos tonight after dinner.  You can check those photos out on our daily summer photos over the next 24 hours, too.  Enjoy and until you all see photos of your smiling campers, ILC U THERE!
