Wednesday, July 15th

We cannot believe that today was the last full day of session 1 here at Island Lake. These past 2 ½ weeks flew by way too fast. It’s going to be sad to say goodbye to many amazing campers tomorrow morning. We hope they had the greatest experience here at ILC & we hope to see them all at camp next summer once again. Parents of session 1 campers, you should have all received an email with changeover day information. Please read it thoroughly to make sure you are properly prepared to pick up your children at the bus stops tomorrow.

It may not be February 14th but here at Island Lake today is Valentine’s Day. Many campers & staff are wearing red or pink to celebrate the love at camp. Our campers rocked it out in our 1st session Rock Concert this afternoon after super cleanup (& packing for those who are going home tomorrow). The Valentine’s Day theme ran throughout the rock concert.

Bunk Cup has been a fun camp-wide event throughout all of 1st session. Many bunks were extremely into it and earned points in all aspects of camp. Since the session is winding down, a winner was announced at lunch today. Here’s a breakdown of winners: On the girls side, 4th place went to G11, 3rd place to G14, 2nd place to G15, and 1st place went to G24. On the boys side, 4th place went to B15, 3rd place to B16, 2nd place to B4, and 1st place to B24. However, there was an overall winner of bunk cup. The new 2015 ILC champion of Bunk Cup went to,….drum roll please,…..Boys Bunk 3!!! Those kids went crazy with excitement and are proud to be the new champions amongst camp.

Out west, today was a full day for our teen tour. They explored Zion National Park where they went on a full day guided tour. They hiked and checked out the beautiful scenery. We’ll have some wonderful photos to share with you on CampMinder.

Last night’s Circus Show was absolutely FANTASTIC! Our performers put on a stupendous, outstanding, magnificent show. We recorded it so parents, you can order a copy after the summer. Tonight is our older camper production of “Legally Blonde”. It should be another wonderful ILC production.

Sorry but I don’t have any special feature photos for you today. Hopefully all of this camp news will hold you over for now. There will be lots of Valentine’s Day photos in our daily pics on CampMinder.

That’s all the news that we have for today, our last day of the 1st session. For those of you with children coming home tomorrow, enjoy your last evening of peace and quiet (Ha!). To everyone else, ILC U THERE!
