Saturday, August 6th

Today was another wonderful day here in Starrucca, PA. We woke up to early morning rain but it had already passed before our 8am wake up call. The temperature rose to the upper 70’s and the sky was a mix of clouds and sun until lunchtime. At that point the sun fully broke through and made for a beautiful day here at ILC with temps in the low 80’s.

Camp of Thrones is now in full swing. Kingdoms have been formed, royal families have been chosen, and challenges are on the horizon. Today at dinner the royal families will be introduced. Alliances are currently being discussed. No challenges have occurred yet but that’s next to come.

At rest hour today I will hold my big Canada teen trip meeting with all of our campers and staff who are going on Monday. I will hand out the itinerary, a packing list, talked about our expectations from the kids while we are out of camp, and discussed details about the overall trip. Our 9th grade and older kids participating in this trip are so incredibly excited for our 4 days of fun, which is only 2 days away.

Tonight’s evening activity is Island Lake Live! What is Island Lake Live, you may ask? Well, let me tell you. It’s like Saturday Night Live meets the Tonight Show. A couple of our group leaders will host the event and our rock shop counselors will perform as the house band. We will show some pre-taped segments such as Carpool Karaoke, Mean Tweets, and our CITs will do some live bits for the camp to enjoy. This is the first time we’re hosting this evening activity here at ILC and it’s sure to be a memorable event.

Today’s special feature is LUNCHTIME in the dining room! I just walked around and took photos of a variety of our campers while eating their Philly cheesesteaks, French fries, mushroom cheesesteaks (for our vegetarians), and delicious chocolate chip cookies for dessert. Enjoy drooling over this great food and until tomorrow, ILCUTHERE!
