Saturday, July 5th

Another sunny day here in Starrucca, PA.  Today is International Day here at ILC so campers and staff dressed to represent a multitude of international countries.  Although the morning was cool, it’s warmed up a great deal this afternoon.  Today feels like the perfect summer day;  sunny, warm but not too hot, and no humidity.

But enough about the weather,…we kicked off our Wayne County sports tournaments today.  Girls 10th and 11th grade played a hard game of lacrosse against another camp but unfortunately they did not win.  On a brighter note, our 9th grade girls tennis team kicked some major uh, racquet, against another camp and won their tournament 3-2.  Go ILC girls’ tennis!

Yesterday’s 4th of July celebration was SPECTATULAR here at Island Lake!  As we mentioned in yesterday’s blog, our music lunch, cookout, and firework display were all out of this world amazing.  We had the whole camp dancing away at lunch and everyone was in awe of our firework show.  We even had a firework preshow this year- a magic show followed by a rock concert.  We were unable to set off the sky lanterns due to the wind but the campers all sat on the hill by the canteen and seemed to love every moment of their evening festivities.

Today’s special feature,…SKATEPARK.  Check out some “rad”and “gnarly” pics below.


As mentioned in the previous blog posting, our first weekly video is now up for all to enjoy.  Here’s the link:

Well, that’s about it for now.  We hope you’re having a nice relaxing holiday weekend.  Until tomorrow, ILC U THERE!
