May Parent News

Hey ILC Parents…Wow, how did May sneak up on us so quickly? With spring in the air, excitement is building and summer 2013 right around the corner! Yay! As of May 27th, all correspondence should go directly to our summer address at camp.

If your child is enrolled for summer 2013 at Island Lake, please be sure to fill out your profile and transportation forms, either by filling out the hard copies you received in your folder or fill out the forms right here on our website. If you choose to fill them out online, just click the “My CampMinder” link or “NEW: MY CAMPMINDER log in”. You will be prompted to enter your email address and then click on “Retrieve password.” We recommend you change the password to one you will remember. If your children are returning campers, we suggest you use the same password that you used last summer or the same one you use to access our summer photos and send emails to your children. The medical form is not on our website so please be sure to fill out the form enclosed in your folder and mail it back to us.

By now you should have received your “Spring Mailing” in the postal mail. Enclosed in this mailing is your Parent Handbook, Camper Handbook, Activities Handbook, Medication Policy letter, travel itinerary form, Open House flyer (if your child is a 1st time camper this summer), as well as a flyer about our online photos, videos, & emails. Whether you are returning or are new to the Island Lake family, please make sure you and your child(ren) take a few minutes to sit down and read this spring mailing thoroughly, as we always add new information to these manuals and letters.

Are you a returning parent who has not yet signed up your child(ren) for this upcoming summer at Island Lake? If 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 any of our devoted campers and it’s very difficult for us when forced to do so each and every year. Please don’t let that happen to your child. It only takes a few minutes to fill out the registration form and send it in to our NY office with a deposit. If you don’t have one handy, click “Forms & Mailings” to the left of this page and print the “2013 Enrollment Form”.

As a reminder to all of our summer 2013 families, don’t forget to read our monthly newsletters. The newsletters provide a great deal of important information for your child’s upcoming summer. Our newsletter link is located on our homepage. All summer 2013 families will also receive their very own hard copy of our monthly newsletter at the start of each month.

Well, that’s about it for now. Enjoy your navigation through our site checking out all of our fun-filled activities and smiling faces. Our camp offers a program that furthers your child’s growth, independence, and sense of decision-making while simultaneously giving them the responsibility to create their own exciting summer. To all current Island Lake families, we look forward to an amazing summer 2012 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 all… ILC U THERE!
