Everybody up, everybody up, up, up! Rise and Shine! It’s a beautiful day in Starrucca, PA! The birds are singing, the sun is shining, the grass is growing. Everybody out of bed. Breakfast, in 10 minutes,…see you there!
Now that we’ve gotten your attention,…although it’s only February and the Northeast has been pounded with tons of snow and cold temps these past couple of months, camp is constantly on the brain for all of us in the Island Lake offices. We love hearing from all of our campers and staff, whether it’s via email or social media. Trip and Dustin are in the midst of their college recruitment tour, seeing lots of previous staff and hiring new fantastic counselors for this upcoming summer.
No time better than the present to send us your thoughts about your Island Lake experiences. We’d love to hear from our campers and staff, returning and new, with information that we can post here on our blog. Why not take a few moments to sit down and email us in your warm, cozy homes, whether it’s shout outs to your friends, memories of previous summers, poems about your camp experience, or anything else camp related?
Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane,…remember opening day when you first arrived at camp, jumped off of your bus, and ran into the arms of your counselors and friends? Watching you all scream in happiness as you embraced your special Island Lake friends is a familiar experience we love to reminisce. Evening activities (did somebody say “Revival Night”?), Lazy Days, special events such as Tribals, 4th of July, and everybody’s favorite, COLOR WAR,…oh so many memories, we can’t even begin to list them all.
But you can! We’d love to hear from you so you can tell us what you love so much about Island Lake. Is it the camp directors that you love so much? (Haha- sorry, I couldn’t resist!) What camp memories are you daydreaming about while you’re in class? How often do you look through your camp photos from last summer? How much time do you spend on the ILC Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest pages? How many online group messages do you have going with all of your camp friends? Have you gotten together with fellow ILC’ers this winter? What are you looking forward to most this upcoming summer?
We want to hear what YOU have to say! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we’ll post your messages here on our blog as well as in our Island Laker newsletter. Until then, only 137 days our Island Lake family will be together once again! ILC U THERE!!!
