Hello Island Lake Families!

We have had a beautiful day here in Starrucca, and lots of activities happening on and off camp.

Last night we had campers visit the observatory. Our science department does this trip once a summer and it is an absolute favorite every time. We also had our Session Three Social last night for evening activity. There are photos on the CampMinder daily photo page as our very own staff members took turns guest “D.J.ing “ the event. The camper’s favorite seemed to be DJ Matt Stoltz.

In today’s news Our Teen Trip is enjoying Montreal, with today’s visit being to the Lachine Rapids. After a day playing in the water on a jet boat, they will visit the Old Port of Montreal for food, and then experience the Voiles en Voiles. The Voiles en Voiles is a pirate ship that contains a ropes course, extending their day of being pirates into the afternoon. Finally they will visit the SOS Labyrinth, before ending todays memorable site visits in Old Montreal.

Speaking of Pirates, the weather was perfect for today’s campers that were on our Third Session Tubing trip down the Delaware River. The campers had a blast, calling this session’s trip the best one of the summer.

Back at camp tonight’s evening activity is Groups. The Girls and Boys Group Leaders have outdone themselves again with tonight’s inventive activities.

Girls Groups 1,2, and 3, are having Cupcake Wars, which sounds like a very yummy activity; while Group 4 Girls will be enjoying the Slip and Slide. Boys Group 1 will be enjoying the traditional camp activity of a Campfire. Boys Group 2, 3 and 4 will be having some fun with our remaining water balloons and water guns from our visiting day water fight; as Boys Group 2 will be playing Water Balloon Battleship. Boys Groups 3 and 4 will be playing Laser Tag with water guns.

Also still going on around camp is our 2nd annual Camp of Thrones. We hope you enjoyed your sneak peak into the challenges with yesterday’s video. It has been a day full of challenges, so here is your daily update:

The Treedom have challenged Walterfell to which Walterfell has replied with a challenge task equal to that of Treedom’s initial challenge. Translation: Pioneering challenged Sports and won, so Sports has challenged Pioneering to another challenge to even the score.

The Shredquarters have not given up hope, attacking Bakingham for a second time; perhaps it is courage or foolishness? Translation: Skatepark challenged Cooking to another challenge, after losing the first task, you think they would have learned?

As the Challenges continue some departments are trying to regain their kingdoms by issuing a second challenge. Will this work in their favor? Or will it lose them their kingdom? Tune in tomorrow for your Camp of Thrones daily update to find out.

Today’s special feature is a variety of activities! Enjoy for now until we have a special surprise feature tomorrow!
