Sunday, July 5th

We hope you all had a great 4th of July! Ours was pretty fantastic here at Island Lake. Ending the night with the firework show was an awe-inspiring topper to an amazing, spirited, fun-filled day.

Today we woke to clear skies and the temperatures rose to mid-70’s. Yay! Intercamp games resumed and we had several tennis tournaments home and away. We also had a boys basketball game as well as a boys hockey game out of camp today.

Our CITs are having an enjoyable time in San Francisco as you can see from the pictures we’re posting on CampMinder (& a few here on the blog). Yesterday they started their morning walking across the Golden Gate Bridge and then went back to Lombard Street to see the most crooked road during the day. They drove around San Francisco with our amazing tour guide who provided them with a great deal of history about the city. They then grabbed a bite to eat and headed to Alamo Square to see Victorian Row. Before dinner they went to the Cathay House and spent time shopping at Union Square. Their evening ended with a firework display at Chrissey Field. Today they are visiting Stanford University and Hearst Castle before heading to Pismo Beach, CA.

Back here at Island Lake tonight’s evening activity is our infamous ILC social! Our girls love to get dressed up and look pretty for the social while we’re lucky if the boys shower and put on a clean shirt. The kids all head to the gym where DJ Dennis spins some records (ok, maybe he just plays songs from his laptop) and our campers get down and boogie all night long. Social is one of our campers’ favorite evening activities.

Today’s special feature is PIONEERING! We’ve got some pics of the climbing wall, low and high ropes course, outdoor survival skills, and the zipline. There’s also a couple of pics of our kids on the teen tour. Enjoy and until tomorrow, ILC U THERE!
