Hey Island Lake families! It’s hard to believe we’re already 1½ weeks into summer. Time sure flies when we’re having fun! All of us here at ILC hope you’re enjoying all of our social media updates so you can feel as if you are part of the excitement at camp this summer. As a reminder, you can find us on the following websites:

  1. Daily blogs here on our website
  2. Daily tweets on Twitter (
  3. Short videos on our Facebook page (
  4. And of course, our daily photos and weekly videos through your CampMinder account.

Today was Lazy Day so our campers slept in and we had a big brunch at 10:30am. Groups 1&2 (our 6th grade and younger campers) went to see “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” which they appeared to have enjoyed. Groups 3&4 (7th grade and up) went to the bowling alley where they bowled, bumper bowled, and ran around playing arcade games. They, too, had a great time.

Tonight’s evening activity is GROUPS! Here’s a breakdown of what everyone is doing: Boys Group 1- they’re putting on an Ugly Fashion Show with girls group 1. I, personally, am looking forward to attending this evening activity to see what creative outfits these kids come up with: Boys Group 2- Cupcake Wars: Boys Group 3- pool party with girls group 3: Boys Group 4- they having an Egg Hunt, Island Lake style.

On the girls side, Girls Group 1- Ugly Fashion Show with boys group 1: Girls Group 2- Minute 2 Win It (just like the tv game show): Girls Group 3- Pool Party with boys group 3: Girls Group 4- Great Imposter game. This consists of each bunk bringing a laundry bag of items to the location where the activity takes place. The group leader will give them the name(s) of a famous person (or people) or hey, even people here at camp, and then each bunk has to pull items out of their laundry bag to dress up like those people and put on a skit to go along with it.

Today we experienced a mish mosh of weather here at camp. We had sun, we had clouds, we had rain, we had more sun,…the sky just couldn’t make up its mind so it kept us on our toes.

Since today was lazy day, I don’t have any special feature photos to post. I promise to be back with more on tomorrow’s blog. We’ll also post pictures from the movies and bowling alley tomorrow on our CampMinder photo page marked with today’s date. Stay tuned and until then, ILCUTHERE!
