Today was wait for it, wait for it,…another beautiful day in Starrucca, PA!  Shocker, huh?  We woke up to clear blue skies and cool temps in the low 60’s and it warmed up to the mid 70’s by the afternoon hours.  What a perfect day to play camp!

This morning 30 campers went on a day trip to Cooperstown to enjoy the Baseball Hall of Fame.  They spent a few hours walking around the Hall of Fame to learn about the history of baseball, America’s greatest pastime. They usually convince the counselors to let them get some pizza and fudge in town, too.  They just returned from this trip during our 3rd minor.

Today at lunch I surprised all of our campers (& counselors) with another Music Lunch for the session.  They were so excited to listen to music while eating and then sing and dance in the dining room until it was time to go get ready for their 2ndmajor.  It’s always such a wonderful bonding time for our campers when have Music Lunch here at ILC.  You will see pictures posted on Waldo later on.

We have a few fun activities going on here at camp today, as well.  Group Leader Aideen is an avid field hockey player so she offered this activity to our campers in the 1stminor to get them interested in it.  She had a pretty good turnout too.  Our Fortifying the Frontier kids in Pioneering had a big “FTF Game Day” during the 3rd minor so they will had a huge number of kids playing up there today.  Tomorrow is our big Skatepark competition.  I’ll post the winners for you once this takes place.  We’re also waiting on one final match in the ILC Tennis Open.

A reminder of yesterday’s ILC Morning News riddle:  What has a head, a tail, no legs, and is brown?  Answer:  A Penny! I got some great responses to this one. Props to Rachel B., Brian G., Ben W., and Lisa A. for getting this answer correct.  Brian went so far as to also guess a dirty quarter.  Here’s today’s fun riddle:  You will find me in the past.  I can be created in the present, but the future can never taint me.  What am I?

 Tonight’s evening activity is our younger camper show, Frozen!  These kids have been rehearsing and working hard all session to put on a fantastic performance for the camp to enjoy.  We’re all very excited to see our little ones take to the stage to sing, act, and dance their hearts out tonight.  We’ll have lots of pictures posted for you on Waldo tomorrow and I’ll also post some on the blog.

Today’s special feature is a variety of photos from last night’s Dance Show and Magic Show. Enjoy and until tomorrow, ILCUTHERE!
