Wednesday, August 12th

We apologize for the delayed blogs but we’ve had server issues the past couple of days.  Although no photos, here’s what we wanted to blog on August 12th:

Hey Island Lake families! It’s hard to believe we only have five short days left in the summer. Time sure flies here in the 18462; it seems like Opening Day was yesterday, and here we are in the twilight of the summer.

We have a camp full of rested campers thanks to the final ETB of the summer last night. Tomorrow will be our final Lazy Day of the summer. Groups 1 and 2 are over the moon because they get to see “Minions”! Our older campers (Groups 3 and 4) will be relaxing and enjoying the sun at Nathaniel Cole Park. Lazy Day should be a great day for all!

Today we took a healthy contingent of campers to Cooperstown and the Baseball Hall of Fame. They spent the day learning the history of America’s pastime… and probably eating pizza and a whole lot of fudge!

Up in Boston our kids got a little wet yesterday but still enjoyed a full day of activities:  tour of Fenway, Duck Tour, Science Museum, dinner at Hard Rock Cafe, and then saw a show they absolutely loved called Shear Madness.  It was interactive so the kids were able to participate in the whodunnit themed show.  Today they spend a beautiful sunny day in Martha’s Vineyard.  They’ll finish the day at California Pizza Kitchen before heading back to camp.  Tomorrow they’ll hit up Six Flags New England before heading back to their favorite home in Starrucca, PA.  Lots of photos to come.

Here at camp tonight’s evening activity is groups. On the boys’ side, Group 1 is playing Gaga, Group 2 is having a campfire complete with s’mores, and Group 3 & 4 are playing Extreme Handball (similar to regular Handball, but more EXTREME!). On the girls’ side, Groups 1, 3, and 4 are having a Big Sister/Little Sister Night, and Group 2 is engaging in Cupcake Wars! I for one will be stopping by to taste…I mean, judge the cupcakes.  Until tomorrow, ILC U THERE!
