Good tidings, friends—

Tis, I, your campers Head Counselor making his annual guest appearance on the blog.  I’ll be holding down the fort for the next few days while Wendy is away.  I’ll do my best to live up to the lofty bar Wendy has set for me.

The weather gods did not smile on us much today. We had to deal with rain on and off for the majority of the day.  Thankfully, the clouds parted and the sun shined late this afternoon and we had a beautiful evening at camp. The campers have been amazing throughout the session.  Activities are loud and lively full of leisure and laughter.

The camp day started bright and early here at Island Lake.  The annual Teen Trip left at 6:30am.  Our sleepy-eyed crew of teens, counselors, and Wendy set off for The Cradle of Liberty, The Athens of America, Beantown otherwise known as Boston.

Stop one for the Teen Trip is the Basketball Hall of Fame to soak up all the majesty that is the National Basketball Association.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed one of the lovely teens or chaperones remembers that I love basketball and love souvenirs!  Next up our adventuress crew is heading to the New England Aquarium before exploring Quincy Market for dinner!

Not to be outdone, we will be taking the rest of the campers to Dorney Park tomorrow for Lazy Day. There is a palpable sense of excitement in the air as the campers’ countdown the hours to Dorney.  However, before we can all enjoy a day of rollercoasters and merriment, we have an Evening Activity and Canteen to attend.  Tonight we are flip-flopping the normal routine.  Canteen will be first and the Evening Activity will be second.  Why?  Great question, Reader.  Tonight’s Evening Activity is a Movie Night and you can’t have an authentic Movie Night without snacks, thus, Canteen before Evening Activity.

Until Friday (because I will be at Dorney Park all day riding the rides and eating all the sugary deliciousness I can find), ILCUTHERE
