Hi Island Lake families! It was an amazing 3 days of Color War and the East Coast Grey Team took home the win by only 150 points. Last night’s Sing was exciting for everyone. Great songs, funny skits, and fantastic plaques were enough to make each team proud. The whole camp later sang the camp alma mater while the scores were tallied up and many kids and counselors were in tears (tears of joy, of course). It was a fierce 3 days of friendly competition. Friendships and bonds were strengthened and the love everyone had for one another filled the room with joy. Although one team had to win Color War, the memories over the course of the 3 days are what will stay with everyone for a long time to come.
Our regular schedule of majors and minors resumed today. The sun is shining strong and the temperatures are warm in the low 80’s (nothing like the heat you are all experiencing right now). Our intercamp games and tournaments resumed today with our ILC dancers going out of camp for a Dance Competition over at another Wayne County camp. We placed 3rd out of 23 different dance numbers and received a “Spectacular Technique” certificate for our dancers’ overall wonderful technique. Congratulations to our ILC dancers for doing so well today. Our 8th & 9th grade girls also played in a softball game out of camp this afternoon.
Tomorrow is our 2nd Lazy Day of the session. We are going to take our campers to new activities that should be an absolute blast. Groups 1&2 are going to Montage Mountain Water Park. Group 3 is going to Sky Zone and Group 4 is going to Ithaca and then a Binghamton Mets game. It should be a fun day out of camp for all of our different groups. More details will come in tomorrow’s blog.
