Tuesday, July 14th

Hi Island Lake families! After 4 days straight of sunshine, the inevitable happened,…it rained. But don’t worry, it didn’t start until after lunch, it wasn’t heavy, and it didn’t last very long.  Last night’s performance of “High School Musical” was spectacular! Our younger campers put on quite a show with magnificent sets. You’ll have an opportunity to purchase a dvd of the show after the summer.

We had tons of special events going on here at camp today. Our pioneers went on a climbing trip in Prompton Park, which is near Honesdale, PA. The kids had the opportunity to climb and rappel on 30-40 foot rocks. We also had an intra-camp mountain biking race for our bikers. Our skaters had their once a session skatepark competition. Campers of all levels competed in rollerblading and skateboarding to show off their mad skills that they developed over the course of the past 2 ½ weeks.

Here at Island Lake today we hosted our annual Wayne County 9th grade and under boys volleyball tournament. Although we didn’t place in the top 3, our kids had fun and our staff enjoyed hosting other camps. In other sports our 9th grade girls basketball team had a game.

We’re also starting something new here at camp,…Tournament Tuesday and Book of Records. Kids will have an opportunity to create new camp records and others can then try to break those records. We’re starting this in sports and hope it’ll extend to other departments as well. Tons of sporting tournaments took place during the minors today to start our book of records.

Today our CIT’s said goodbye to Las Vegas and hello to St. George, Utah. There they started off their day picking up canned food to donate while they volunteered at the Utah Food Bank. They then checked into their new hotel and went to dinner at Boca di Beppo. They have a very busy day tomorrow at Zion National Park so they took it easy today.

Back here at ILC, today’s special feature is MAGIC! Tonight’s evening activity the Circus Show and then ETB. I’ll bring you a full report on the Circus Show tomorrow. Until then, ILC U THERE!
