Tuesday, August 8th

Hi Island Lake Families! I’m happy to report that the rain has finally stopped! After a full day of wetness, it was time for the grass to dry, tennis courts to get squeegeed, sports balls to be brought back outdoors, horses to ride the trails, swimmers to go back into the lake and pool, and overall have another great outdoor day here in Starrucca, PA. The temps are already warmer than yesterday, reaching 70 degrees for a high. Hopefully the layers of clothing will be discarded as shorts, t-shirts, and tank tops return as the casual wear of our campers once again.

Last night’s Dance Show and Magic Show was spectacular! The dance show theme was Beyonce vs. Gaga. There was a story narrated in between the dances, which were all performed to the songs by these two great artists.  We have some very talented dancers here at ILC! The magic show theme was Magic Through the Seasons so they went through every season performing stage illusion for the camp. The whole night was entertaining and our campers and staff did a fantastic job. Kudos to all of them for a wonderful show!

And now in ILC sports,…it’s back! 7th, 8th, and 9th grade girls played volleyball here at home this morning. 6th & 7th and 8th & 9th grade boys played in basketball games out of camp this afternoon.

In ILC Open news, our finals were played this morning so I have a list of winners for you:

GIRLS: 5th & 6th grade winner- Olivia M. 9th grade & older winner- Gabby G.

BOYS: 5th & 6th grade winner- Ian F.   7th & 8th grade winner- Luc L.   9th grade & up winner- David P. Congrats to all of our 2nd session ILC Open Winners. They will receive their very own tennis trophy at the banquet on Friday night.

Tonight’s evening activity is our younger campers’ show, Seussical! Our little ones put on a sneak peak for us in the dining room last night during dinner announcements and it was adorable. This show should be another fun one to watch.

Today’s special feature is the DANCE & MAGIC SHOW! Enjoy and until tomorrow, ILCUTHERE!
