Tuesday, July 23rd

Happy Tuesday everyone! Or as we say here at camp,  “What day is today?”  Can you believe we’re already in our 4thweek of camp? We only have a few more full days left in this session.  I know I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again.  Time flies when we’re having fun!  Speaking of which, here’s a link to our week 3 video for your enjoyment:

I’m happy to report that the rain stopped overnight so we had a dry day today in the 18462.  It was overcast and dreary this morning but outdoor activities were able to resume once again.  This afternoon the sunshine broke through the clouds and temps reached a high of only around 72 degrees so it’s nice to have a break from the heat and humidity.

In ILC sports, yesterday our girls did very well in the gymnastics meet at another camp.  Jade O. performed exceptionally well as she came in 4thplace out of a total of 14 camps.  This morning we hosted an in-camp fencing tournament.  Stefan K. came back from behind and won the entire competition.  I was told that our fencing campers really enjoyed this friendly competition.  The ILL Open is finishing up their tennis matches today so I will hopefully have the results for you tomorrow.  We also have a skatepark competition in the next couple of days that I’ll report more about once it takes place.

Yesterday’s riddle was a head scratcher:  I have four blades yet I draw no blood.  What am I? Answer:  a fan or a windmill!  Congrats to Meredith B. and Alexandrea W. for getting this riddle correct.  Today’s riddle is:  What has a head, a tail, is brown, and has no legs?  I give up!

Theater, circus, magic, dance, and music rehearsals are winding down as we begin our performance week tonight.  Abracadabra and a 5, 6, 7, 8!  We kick off this special week with our MAGIC & DANCE SHOW for evening activity in the theater.

Today’s special feature is from last night’s evening activity, Christmas in July!  Our campers had fun with face painting, karaoke, photos with Santa, cookies and milk, snowflake making, dancing to Christmas music, pin the nose on the reindeer, and more.  Check out the fun in the photos below and until tomorrow, ILCUTHERE!
