Hi Island Lake families! Today was our 2nd Rookie Day of Summer 2015! It was a great success, as several future Island Lakers experienced a day in the life of a camper. We hope the children had as much fun as we did!

Today was also our first full day of majors and minors for our 2nd session campers. The sun shined throughout most of the day and the temps went all the way to 80 degrees.   Our happy campers were fully engaged in our major and minor schedule.

Today was the 31st annual Dr. William Perkins Memorial Run in Honesdale, PA. A busload of campers left early this morning to participate in this run, which has become a tradition for our Island Lakers for over 20 years now. The run took place at a park to raise money for the nearby hospital. Our campers ran a 1-mile race, a 2-mile race, as well as a 5K race, and they placed very well overall.

In ILC sporting news, our 8th & 9th grade boys played in a tennis tournament here at camp this morning and they won. Next for these boys is the Wayne County semi-finals tournament. Our 8th & 9th grade girls played in a softball game this morning here at camp and they won, too! Woohoo, go Island Lakers!

Tonight’s evening activity is COUNSELOR HUNT! The counselors all hide around camp (only in public areas but of course) and our campers have to run around and try to find them all. Once caught, the kids find out if the counselors they captured are worth positive or negative points. The bunk that captures the most counselors with the highest score at the end of the activity is the winner. They will win bragging rights and LTB (Late To Bed).

Well, that’s about it for today. I hope you’re having as nice of a weekend as we are here at camp. Until tomorrow, ILCUTHERE!
