Happy Lazy Day! Today our campers slept in and we had brunch at 10:30am. Groups 1 & 2 then went to a bowling alley in Binghamton, NY while groups 3 & 4 went to a local town to see Tarzan, the movie. It was a nice and relaxing day for our campers with beautiful sunny skies and warm temps.

Saturday is approaching fast and with that comes our one and only annual Island Lake Visiting Day! (Cheers in the background,…woohoo,…yay!) We know you’re excited to come up to camp to live out your youth and we’re excited to have you join us and see your children. We will have lots of activities and exhibits going on all day, as well as a huge lunch buffet. If you prefer, you can take your children out of camp for the day.

I’m sure you plan to bring lots of junk food, baked goods, and sushi (Lol!) to shower your children with affection, so please keep in mind that we discard all of the food 2 days later. Do not bring so much that your children have to throw away lots of great homemade brownies, cookies, bagged chips, chocolate, grandma’s secret recipes, etc. We truly hate to waste food, so don’t shlep too much up here.

Please refrain from bringing bottled water and drinks, too. We have amazing well water here at camp that tastes even better than bottled water. Bottled drinks will also be discarded so save yourself the muscular strength of carrying these heavy items into camp.

Visiting Day hours are from 9:30am-3:30pm. If you leave camp for the day, please bring your children back on time for our other annual super duper, huge, extravagant Water Fight! Parents are fair game if you’re still here for the water fight so just remember; quick and speedy goodbyes are easier on your children. We expect that some campers will be in tears so our staff will be around to help them through what’s usually just a short moment of sadness. The water fight is a great distraction to get children through their difficult goodbyes. Please work with us and know your children are in great hands here at camp.

Today’s special feature is the COOKOUT we had for dinner. Evening activity for tonight is GROUPS. On the Boys side: Group 1- Canteen Casino (don’t worry, it’s just for fun- no real gambling going on with the little boys!): Group 2- Pool Party: Group 3- Campfire: Group 4- Gaga. On the Girls side: Group 1&2- Zumba (now this I gotta see!): Groups 3&4- Lip Sync Battle (I don’t think LL Cool J or Chrissy Teigen will be making special appearances, sorry!)

Have a great night and until tomorrow, ILC U THERE!
