Sunday, July 7th

Happy Sunday Fun-day, or as we like to call it here at Island Lake,…another day of camp.  We had an absolutely beautiful morning in Starrucca, PA.  The sun shined and the warm temps made it a great day for outdoor activities.  The clouds rolled in after lunch and the rest of the day was partly sunny.  Today was a perfect summer day.

We had lots of intercamp sports games today.  Here’s a list of all who participated:

5th grade and younger girls played basketball out of camp this morning

8th & 9th grade girls played soccer out of camp this morning

6th & 7th grade boys played basketball out of camp this morning

10th & 11th grade boys played soccer out of camp this afternoon

It’s great to see that our tournaments have picked up pace and our campers are playing lots of sports in and out of camp.  I’ll blog photos of all of the sports happening here in camp over the next few days so you can see all of the action going on here at ILC.

Riddle me this! Here’s yesterday’s riddle and answer: Whoever makes it, tell it not. Whoever takes it, knows it not. And whoever knows it, want it not. Answer:  counterfeit money.  Who would have guessed?  It was a tough one.  Here’s today’s riddle:  Forwards I’m heavy, backwards I’m not.  What am I?

 Tonight’s evening activity is GROUPS!  Here’s a list of what all of our campers are doing this evening:  Boys Group 1- Kickball;  Girls Group 1- Dodgeball;  Boys & Girls Group 2- Campfire;  Boys & Girls Group 3- theater games (fun improv games that will make everyone laugh the entire time);  Boys & Girls Group 4- Capture the Flag.

Today’s special feature is TENNIS!  It’s so nice to see tons of campers out there on the tennis courts each period.  I could have easily posted over 50 pictures but I narrowed it down to my best 30.  At tennis, we have instruction going on for all 3 of the majors and recreational tennis happening during the minors.  Campers are hitting with one another and I love seeing additional tennis lessons taking place during the minors.  It’s fantastic to see all that our campers have learned in just this past week alone here at ILC.  That goes for all of our departments, not just tennis.

Enjoy the photos below and until tomorrow, ILCUTHERE!
