November Parent News

Hey ILC Parents!  We hope you and your children had a fun-filled, safe Halloween.  We’d love to post photos on our blog of our campers in their Halloween costumes.  Please send pictures of your children all dressed up for their special day of trick-or-treating to and we’ll happily post them.

Are your kids still sharing their wonderful ILC memories with you?  We sure hope so!  Our summer 2015 countdown is in full swing, as camp will sneak up on us before we know it.  In the meantime, you and your children can continue to view our daily summer photos, weekly videos, blogs, & Facebook videos for several months to come.

All of us in the ILC winter offices are very excited for our CAMP REUNION on November 22nd at Sportime USA in Elmsford, NY.  The reunion will be held from 10am until 1pm and details are provided in our monthly newsletters.  We look forward to seeing many of our summer 2014 campers and staff there on that date, no RSVP necessary.

By now, all of our camper families should have received their Island Lake Video Yearbook on dvd.  We hope you and your children have taken the opportunity to watch this amazing video filled with many exciting summer activities and memories.  For over an hour, you can forget about all that’s going on around you and truly feel a part of the ILC experience.

We are excited to announce that we are in the midst of developing a teen tour for our kids who are of CIT age, entering 11th and 12th grade in the fall of 2015.  We will send out all of the specific details as soon as we have it all finalized, which should be in the next few weeks.  Right now we can tell you that the trip will leave a week or so into the 1st session and they will return to camp in the 2nd session. We plan to have the kids back at camp in time for Visiting Day so you can still come and spend a wonderful day at camp with your children.

Don’t forget, we have a wonderful Island Lake App for your iPhones and iPads.  We hope all of our campers, parents, and staff have already downloaded our app and have taken advantage of all of the amazing features it entails.  You can check out this past summer’s photos, videos, read our monthly newsletters, and even log onto your CampMinder account, which will come in handy next summer while your children are with us at camp. The home screen of our app even has a countdown of the number of days until summer 2015 begins.  Definitely take advantage of our app if you haven’t already checked it out.  We’re really proud of it!

Registration for summer 2015 is going very well thus far.  If you have no yet registered your child(ren) for next summer, please don’t put it off any longer!  We truly do not want to turn away our loyal campers.  You can enroll your child(ren) with the registration forms we mailed home with your monthly newsletters or you can download the form here on our website under “Island Lake Families” and then “Forms & Mailings”.

We look forward to seeing many of our Island Lakers at our camp reunion on November 22nd.  Until then, ILC U THERE!
