Welcome Island Lake Camp Parents Welcome Island Lake Camp Parents

Summer at Island Lake is approaching! Once spring appears, do you know what else comes along with this season? Blooming flowers, budding trees,…oh yeah, and the month of June! What big, important, life-changing event occurs in late June? No, not final exams, silly! Well, yes, many of you will have to suffer through your children’s exams, but more importantly, SUMMER will arrive and CAMP WILL BEGIN! Woohoo! Our countdown to the opening day at camp has kicked into gear and lucky for us, summer at Island Lake will approach before we know it!!!

All summer 2017 families should have received a letter regarding camper forms and a Medical Form along with your March newsletter. Both a parent and a physician, as required by Pennsylvania law, must complete the Medical Form. On our website we have TONS of information to prepare you and your children for this summer. There are forms online that we request you fill out promptly via your CampMinder account. The Profile Form helps us guide your children when they choose their activities and put together their schedules. The Transportation Form lets us know which bus your children will be taking to camp. If we do not receive the Transportation Form in our office by May 1st, we will have to assign a bus to your children. In June, we will send you detailed information on the bus locations, along with luggage tags that you will use to mark your children's bags. You can access all of our other forms on our website at and then clicking “Island Lake Families,” and “Forms & Mailings.”

We are super excited for our change in dates and sessions for this summer. Instead of offering 3 sessions, we are changing it up and offering 2 sessions. Session 1 will be 4 weeks long and session 2 will be 3 weeks in length. Here’s a list of important dates:

  • Opening Day of Camp - Saturday, June 24th
  • Changeover Day - Saturday, July 22nd
  • Closing Day - Saturday, August 12th
  • Open House - Saturday, June 10th
  • Visiting Day - Saturday, July 15th
  • Rookie Day - Saturday, July 8th

Registration for Summer 2017 has exceeded last year’s enrollment at this point in time. We are thrilled to know that we had so many happy campers with us last summer. If you haven't yet registered your child for summer 2017 but plan to do so, please do not put it off any longer. Some bunks are already full! It only takes a few minutes to fill out the registration form, we promise! If you don’t have one handy, just click “Forms & Mailings” to the left of this page and then print the “2017 Enrollment Form”.

To all current Island Lake families, we look forward to an amazing summer 2017 with your children. To all prospective families, feel free to contact us if you have any questions after browsing our website: 800-869-6083 or 914-769-6060. And last but not least, to one and all…. ILC U THERE!
