Today was another beautiful session 3 day here in Starrucca, PA. We had mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 70’s. It’s starting to sound like Groundhogs Day but hey, better than the wet weather we had earlier in the summer!

Camp of Thrones is now in full swing. Kingdoms have been formed, royal families have been chosen, and challenges have been started. Today at lunch the royal families were introduced. Alliances have been formed between the following departments: Theater and Sports, Arts & Crafts and Pioneering, Waterfront and Circus, and Rock Shop and Horseback Riding. The first challenge has also been announced between Theater and Art. More news to come!

Today our mountain bike enthusiasts took a trip to Windham, NY to the 2015 Mountain Bike World Cup Festival. They had a blast watching bike races and enjoyed the entertainment all around them.

At snack break today I held my big Boston teen trip meeting with all of our campers and staff who are going on Monday. I handed out the itinerary, a packing list, talked about our expectations from them while out of camp, and discussed details about the overall trip. Our 9th grade and older kids participating in this trip are so incredibly excited for our 4 days of fun, which is only 2 days away.

Today’s special feature is the Camp of Thrones Royal Family introductions.

Tonight’s evening activity is Mr. & Mrs. ILC. This is one of our campers’ favorites. The female campers dress up the male counselors as females and vice versa. Those reps then perform in a variety of competitions on stage for the camp to watch. It should be a night full of laughs and cheers! Until tomorrow, ILC U THERE!
