Fun-Filled Island Lake Reunion

Our Island Lake Camp Reunion this past Saturday at Sportime USA was a HUGE SUCCESS!!!   Thanks to our campers, their parents, and our staff, as all of you made this day special for everyone involved. Our kids had a fantastic time with their camp friends running around playing games, going on rides, and plain ol’ hanging out with one another and catching up on the past few months. The screams of joy as friends embraced one another was as heartwarming as ever. There is nothing like the friendships that are created at ILC.

Keep an eye out for our reunion photos which will be posted on our website real soon. There are some pics already posted on our Facebook page, Instagram page, and Twitter feed. Below is just a glance at some of the happy campers we saw at our reunion.

Thank you, again, to all who made Saturday’s reunion so very special for everyone involved. Now the countdown to summer 2016 officially kicks into gear,..214 days!

Happy Thanksgiving to all and until we reunite at camp once again next summer, ILC U THERE!

Camp Reunion This Weekend!

5 MORE DAYS! Yup, that’s right, we’re counting down the days and we have less than a week until our much anticipated Island Lake 2015 Camp Reunion takes place! We are so excited to see many of our happy campers, along with local staff members. We can’t wait for screams of excitement when friends embrace one another, many their first time seeing each other since saying goodbye at camp.

All of our Island Lakers, current and past, are welcome to join us on November 21st at Sportime USA in Elmsford, NY. Our reunion will take place from 10am- 1pm so don’t be late! Campers will be given game cards to enjoy all that this indoor amusement center has to offer: arcade games, laser tag, indoor bowling, rides, and more.

Come and be a part of the fun at Sportime USA on Saturday. We’ll take tons of photos and post them on our website so if you can’t make it, you can still feel as if you were a part of the ILC reunion experience.

Looking forward to seeing many of you in a few more days! ILC U THERE!!!

Hey ILC Parents! We hope you and your children had a fun-filled, safe Halloween. We’d love to post photos on our blog of our campers in their Halloween costumes. Please send pictures of your children all dressed up for their special day of trick-or-treating to [email protected] and we’ll happily post them.

All of us in the ILC winter offices are very excited for our CAMP REUNION on November 21st at Sportime USA in Elmsford, NY. The reunion will be held from 10am until 1pm and details are provided in our monthly newsletters. We look forward to seeing many of our summer 2015 campers and staff there on that date, no RSVP necessary.

We are excited to offer our 2nd annual West Coast Teen Tour for all of our CIT’s entering 11th grade in the fall of 2016. Please see our October 12th blog for more details. If you have any additional questions about this trip, simply give us a call in our NY office.

Very soon all of our 2015 camp families will receive their Island Lake Video Yearbook on dvd. We hope you and your children will take the opportunity to watch this amazing video filled with many exciting summer activities and memories. For over an hour, you can forget about all that’s going on around you and truly feel a part of the ILC experience.

Are your kids still sharing their wonderful ILC memories with you? We sure hope so! Our summer 2016 countdown is in full swing, as camp will sneak up on us before we know it. In the meantime, you and your children can continue to view our daily summer photos, weekly videos, blogs, & Facebook videos for several months to come.

Don’t forget, we have a wonderful Island Lake App for your iPhones and iPads. We hope all of our campers, parents, and staff have already downloaded our app and have taken advantage of all of the amazing features it entails. You can check out this past summer’s photos, videos, read our monthly newsletters, and even log onto your CampMinder account, which will come in handy next summer while your children are with us at camp. The home screen of our app even has a countdown of the number of days until summer 2016 begins. Definitely take advantage of our app if you haven’t already checked it out. We’re really proud of it!

Registration for summer 2016 is going very well thus far. If you have not yet registered your child(ren) for next summer, please don’t put it off any longer! We truly do not want to turn away our loyal campers. You can enroll your child(ren) with the registration forms we mailed home with your monthly newsletters or you can download the form here on our website under “Island Lake Families” and then “Forms & Mailings”.

We look forward to seeing many of our Island Lakers at our camp reunion on November 21st. Until then, ILC U THERE!
