Today was a busy day for sporting events. We had a 9th grade boys tennis tournament, 5th grade girls tennis tournaments, 7th grade boys basketball, and 7th grade girls lacrosse.
Meanwhile, out west the kids on the teen tour are enjoying their new surroundings in the Los Angeles area. Today they got a taste of college life with a tour of UCLA. Afterwards they took a guided bus tour all around LA, including Grauman’s Chinese Theater and the Hollywood hills to see some movie stars’ homes. Tonight they’re heading to Dodger Stadium where they’ll watch batting practice and then enjoy the Dodgers vs. the Phillies.
Evening activity tonight is everyone’s favorite, most anticipated secretive activity of the summer. No, it’s not color war! Here’s a hint,…it takes place down at the waterfront. All parents of returning campers should know exactly what I’m referring to. Those of you new to ILC will for sure hear about it when your child returns home. Ok, ok I’ll tell you. Evening activity is revival night! I can tell you now since emails were already printed & post-dinner phone calls have been made so we can’t ruin the surprise for the kids.
Today’s special feature is GYMNASTICS and RYTHMIC GYMNASTICS! Tonight is ETB, Early To Bed. The kids definitely need some extra rest after running around all day, day after day, having fun and playing hard. Have a great evening and until tomorrow, ILC U THERE!
