Happy first full day of 2ndsession!  If your child just arrived for 2ndsession, welcome to my blog.  If you’re still reading from the 1stsession, thanks for your commitment.  Today our campers stayed busy with their 4-minors of auditions, level testing, and trying out activities that they’d like to sign up for as their majors.

This morning we wait for it, wait for it,….we woke up to guess what?  That’s right, we woke up to a beautiful warm and sunny day here in Starrucca, PA.  What a surprise that we once again had blue skies and warm temps!  I couldn’t ask for better weather this entire summer here at camp.  We actually had a small rain shower this afternoon but it was more of a drizzle in the sun that lasted about 5 minutes.

This afternoon, after our 4 minors, we had a pool party and we opened the tennis courts for our avid tennis players.  Our campers played music down at the pool and rocked out while swimming and hanging with their friends on the grass.

Once the pool party was over, our group leaders went around to all of their bunks to sign their campers up for their majors.  All of our department heads were in the office to assist in case of any activity conflicts during the same major.  We assist the campers with their schedule to make sure they can take every activity they like and be sure no one is closed out of an activity.

For those of you who are new to my blog, I post the camp’s Morning News riddle every day for you, the parents, to figure out.  You can email me your guesses at wendy@islandlake.comand I’ll post your name in the blog the following day if you get the correct answer to the riddle.  See, camp can be fun for parents too!  (wink wink!)  Here’s a reminder of Friday’s riddle:  I have two legs but they only touch the ground while I’m at rest.  What am I?  Answer:  a wheelbarrow!  (spelling is up to interpretation).  Here is today’s Morning News riddle:  I have a frame but no pictures.  I have poles but not standing up.  What am I?

Tonight’s evening activity is GROUPS!  As a reminder, here is a list of grades and groups:  5thgrade and under is group 1:  6th& 7thgrade is group 2:  8thgrade is group 3:  9th& 10thgrade is group 4 (11th& 12thgrade CIT’s are in bunks with younger kids).  Here’s a list of what each of the groups are doing tonight for evening activity:  Group 1 boys & girls- Campfire:  Group 2 boys & girls- Cards with Campers:  Boys Groups 3 & 4- Disney Karaoke (would you believe they’ve been asking for this?!?!):  Girls Groups 3 & 4- Messy Twister (sooooo much FUN for the kids!  I will definitely go and take photos to post in the blog tomorrow!).

Well, that’s it for now. Have a great evening and until tomorrow, ILCUTHERE!
