Happy New Year! All of us at Island Lake hope you had a wonderful holiday season filled with love, happiness, and lots of presents. Our countdown for summer 2021 has already kicked into gear and our opening day of camp will be here before we know it. Words cannot even describe our excitement for summer to get here already! 176 days until camp begins (as of January 1st)!
We’re excited to see a glimmer of hope for this upcoming summer as the CoronaVirus vaccine gets distributed throughout the country and Europe (where many staff come from). With regards to protocols for this summer, we will be working with the American Camp Association as well as the State of Pennsylvania. Once they provide us with guidelines, we will share them with all of our Island Lake families. We hope to have it all sorted out and finalized by springtime at the latest.
We’re busy planning for our annual session 2 TEEN TRIP, which this summer will be to Cleveland, Ohio, only if it is safe for our campers and staff to travel. This trip will be offered to all campers entering 9th grade and higher. Check out more details in your January newsletter and if you have any additional questions, feel free to give us a call. The enrollment form and details for this trip will be mailed out shortly to all who are eligible to take advantage of this fun-filled experience.
A reminder to all of our campers and parents; don’t forget to read our monthly newsletters! You can access them right here on our website. Our newsletters provide important information for parents as well as campers, including enrollment and availability updates. Here’s a direct link to the newsletters on our website: ILC Newsletters
Speaking of enrollment, if you have not yet registered your children for summer 2021 but plan to do so, please, please, please do not put it off any longer. Some of our bunks are now completely full. We truly do not want to turn away loyal campers, so let’s avoid that from happening. You can register your children with the enrollment form mailed to you with your newsletter or you can simply click the link at the top of our website labeled, “enroll.” It only takes a few minutes to fill out the form, we promise!
To all current and new Island Lake families, we look forward to an amazing summer 2021 with your children. To all prospective families, feel free to contact us if you have any questions after browsing our website: 914-769-6060 or [email protected] And last but not least, all of us here at Island Lake wish you, our campers, parents, and staff, a very Happy & Healthy New Year!!! ILC U THERE!!!
