March Parents News

Happy March! Our summer 2016 countdown has kicked into gear and lucky for us, summer, and for that matter camp, will approach before we know it. 116 more days as of March 1st! Wow, we’re almost at the double digit mark!

Any day now all summer 2016 families should receive a letter regarding camp forms, a Medical Form, as well as your monthly newsletter. The enclosed Medical Form must be completed by both a parent and a physician as required by Pennsylvania law. On our website we have TONS of information to prepare you and your children for this summer. There are forms online that we request you fill out promptly via your CampMinder account. The Profile Form helps us guide your children when they choose their activities and put together their schedules. The Transportation Form lets us know which bus your children will be taking to camp. If we do not receive the Transportation Form in our office by May 1st, we will have to assign a bus to your children. In June, we will send you detailed information on the bus locations, along with luggage tags that you will use to mark your children’s bags. You can access all of our other forms on our website at and then clicking “Island Lake Families,” and “Forms & Mailings.”

A reminder to our summer ‘15 and ’16 families, don’t forget to read our monthly newsletters. You can access them here on our website or at the start of every month in your mailbox in hard copy form. The newsletters provide important information for parents as well as campers, including enrollment and availability updates.

Speaking of enrollment, if you haven’t yet registered your child for summer 2016 but plan to do so, please, please, please do not put it off any longer. We truly do not want to turn away any of our devoted campers and it’s very difficult for us when forced to do so every year. Don’t let that happen to your child. Some bunks are already full! It only takes a few minutes to fill out the registration form, we promise! If you don’t have one handy, click “Island Lake Families”, “Forms & Mailings” and then print the “2016 Enrollment Form”.

To all current Island Lake families, we look forward to an amazing summer 2016 with your children. To all prospective families, feel free to contact us if you have any questions after browsing our website: 800-869-6083 or 914-769-6060. And last but not least, to one and all…. ILC U THERE!
