Today was the last day of our 2nd session majors and minors schedule. Tomorrow we will have only majors, along with super clean up and an afternoon rock concert. Last night’s performance of 101 Dalmations was adorable! Those little ones put on quite a show with really cute costumes and a great set to go along with it (lots of spots and lots of barks!).
Yesterday’s rain continued on and off throughout the night. This morning and this afternoon we had midsty rain but the precipitation was not heavy enough to bring most of our outdoor activities inside. On the tennis courts were affected by the rain. Due to bad weather, yesterday’s river trip got cut short and the kids returned to camp shortly before dinner. Unfortunately, they didn’t have the opportunity to sleep outdoors under the stars but hey, at least they were able to canoe and kayak during the day before the rain shortened their trip.
Today was another busy one here at Island Lake. Our dancers went to a nearby Wayne County camp to participate in a big Dance Competition this morning and it lasted into the afternoon hours. We also sent a busload of children to Cooperstown to enjoy a fun-filled day at the Baseball Hall of Fame. Here at camp we had our end of the session Skateboard Competition up at the skatepark for all of our rad, gnarly skater dudes.
In the sports department, our 8th & 9th grade boys basketball team played in a tournament game here at camp this morning and they won. Yeah boys!!! Our 8th & 9th grade girls lacrosse team went out of camp this morning to play in an intercamp game but unfortunately they did not win. Our 6th & 7th grade girls soccer team played in the Wayne County finals here at camp this afternoon. They won every game up to this point to make it into the finals but they came just short of a win. We’re proud of our girls for making it so far.
Step right up and get excited because tonight’s evening activity is the Circus Show! It’s going to be an exciting fun-filled night with the flying trapeze, high wire, fabric, lyra, mini-trampoline, rolling globe, ground skills, and more! Don’t worry parents; we’ll record the show so you can order it on DVD after the summer.
Today was sibling photo day so can you guess what the special feature is for the day? That’s right, you guessed correct,…SIBLING PHOTOS! Below is just a small array of the photos that we’ll have posted on our website later on.
It’s hard to believe that we have only one more full day left in the 2nd session. If your child is going home at the end of this session or your child is coming up to camp at the start of our 3rd session on Tuesday, you should have received an email from me by now with changeover day and bus stop information. I’ll also post more Changeover Day info in tomorrow’s blog. Until then, ILC U THERE!
