Saturday, July 11th

Happy Rookie Day! We could not have asked for more beautiful weather to host our first of two Rookie Days here at Island Lake this summer. The first Rookie Day is today and the second is next Saturday, July 18th. If you or any of your friends are interested in having your child experience ILC for a day in the life of a camper, just give us a call. We had tons of young rookies here and they all seemed to have had a fantastic time.

Today was a very busy day for us here at ILC. Not only was it our Rookie Day but we also had many events going on for our campers. A busload left early this morning for the Perkins Run in Honesdale, PA. The run takes place at a park to raise money for their nearby hospital. Our campers ran a 1 mile race as well as a 5K race and they placed very well overall.

This afternoon many other kids went out of camp for a tubing trip down the Delaware River. Perfect weather for a day like today. We also had a group of campers go to the Binghamton Tennis Center to train to be ball kids for an upcoming tournament there. In addition to all of this, our 5th grade boys played in a tennis tourney this afternoon and our 7th grade boys had a soccer match. Keeping busy here at Island Lake, that’s for sure!

On the other side of the country, yesterday our kids had a fantastic time witnessing all of the Comicon wildness in San Diego right near their fun-filled dinner Dick’s Last Resort. Today they went to the San Diego Zoo and Sea World. We should have some great pictures of these adventures posted on our website by tomorrow at the latest.

Today’s special feature is none other than our ROOKIE DAY! Tonight’s evening activity is the full camp Minute to Win It finale. Until tomorrow, ILC U THERE!
