Happy Sunday fun-day! We woke up to sunny skies and warm temps, the warmest day of our summer thus far. Our campers are now settling into their majors for the session and trying lots of new activities for their minors.
We had a great deal of sporting events in and out of camp today. This morning’s tournaments were all out of camp. We had a 7th grade boys baseball game and a 9th grade girls softball game. This afternoon’s sports were all in camp. We hosted a 7th grade boys lacrosse game, a 9th grade boys baseball game, and a 9th grade boys tennis match. Lots of action is going on here at ILC.
In other departments, our theater kids are busy learning songs, staging, and lines for Free to Be ILC and Anything Goes. In cooking they’re grilling pizza and making zucchini soup. Rock Shop has lots of bands rehearsing and lessons going on all day. In Pioneering they’re busy on the climbing wall, ropes courses, giant swing, zip line, building fires, and hiking around trails. This only touches upon all of the activities going on here at camp today.
Out on the western front, our CITs on the teen tour have a huge day today. They’re taking a 9 ½ hour tour of the Grand Canyon! On this tour they’ll see the Painted Desert, the Little Colorado River Gorge, and the Historic Cameron Trading Post on the Navajo Nation. The highlight will for sure be a hike along the edge of the Grand Canyon so they can enjoy the glorious sunset. They’ll then dine with a spectacular view of the canyon. Pictures will come later on our CampMinder daily summer photos.
Today’s special feature is pictures from the WEST COAST TEEN TRIP from the past week! Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, Las Vegas, San Diego Zoo, working at a food kitchen, and more.
Here at camp, tonight’s evening activity is Counselor Hunt. The counselors hide around camp and the kids have to find them and bring them into the gym. Once brought in the kids find out if the counselors are worth positive or negative points. The bunk with the highest number of points earns LTB.
That’s it for today. Until tomorrow, ILC U THERE!
