“Here comes the sun,….badadada,…” The rain has finally ended and our grass is starting to dry with the sun shining down on us once again. Yay! Woohoo! It’s so nice to see blue skies peep through the clouds once again. The temps were warm today in the low 80’s. It was a perfect day to play camp.
In celebration we held our session 2 Music Lunch today! I played the role of DJ Wendy and spun tunes on my ipod in the dining room so the kids could sing and dance throughout lunch. Just about everyone was singing along to new and old school tunes of different generations (“Build Me Up Buttercup” and “I Want It That Way”) and they danced to different genres of music (“Uptown Funk”, “Cha Cha Slide”, and “Cupid Shuffle”). It’s always a fun time for our campers and our staff as you’ll see in our daily photos online.
I’m happy to report that our ILC Tennis Open is back on track with games being played throughout the minors today. Yesterday’s girls lacrosse semi-finals will have to be rescheduled so hopefully we’ll be able to make that happen with many camps already in or about to go into Color War (hint hint, but not quite yet!).
In other departments in camp, circus has been busy rehearsing for their big show tomorrow night. The theme is music from the Grammy Awards. If this show is anything like our session 1 Circus Show then it should be magical entertainment for the whole camp to enjoy.
In cooking today they made sushi and dumplings during the majors and channa masala & curry for the minors. Don’t ask me what that is because I have absolutely no idea. I don’t have my assistant, “Alexa”, here at camp to help me out either. I guess I can resort to the old fashioned Google way. (Haha!)
Up in Pioneering they made use of all of the equipment once again and resumed activities on the upper and lower ropes courses, zipline, and giant swing. After all the rain we’ve had there should have been lots of success with “critter catching” earlier for 1st minor. Outdoor cooking, treetopia, pioneering all-stars, and fortifying the frontier continued once again today, too.
In riddle news, here’s a reminder of yesterday’s: Every night I’m told what to do and each morning I do what I’m told, but I still don’t escape your scold. What am I? Answer: an alarm clock! Here’s today’s riddle: I have two legs but they only touch the ground while I’m at rest. What am I?
Tonight’s evening activity is our younger campers’ performance of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.” I’m soooo excited to see this show. I was actually in it when I was a camper myself (only 20 years ago,…wink wink!) so I’m going to have to refrain from singing through the show. We have a great deal of talent this session and I’ve heard this show is going to blow our audience away!
Today’s special feature is highlights from last night’s Dance Show & Magic Show. Enjoy and until tomorrow (as Color War nears), ILCUTHERE!
