ISC 2016: Family Day

The Indian Summer Camp volunteers woke up this morning super excited to welcome campers to Indian Summer Camp 2016! After last minute preparations, the gates were opened and the camper families came rolling in.
Thanks to Churchill Downs and their sponsorship of Family Day, families were able to enjoy Ice Cream, Cotton Candy, Face Painters, Balloon Artists, Inflatables, a DJ, a Photobooth, and lunch from KFC. It was a fantastic kickoff to camp week, so THANK YOU Churchill Downs!
After parents headed out, cabins decorated their cabin flags before enjoying a salad & pizza dinner. After dinner we did our "all camp photo" and then we began our Olympic march (cabin flags and all) to the campfire circle for our Opening Ceremony campfire. The Opening Ceremonies included songs, skits, and goodies. We also presented the courageous first-time campers bravery feathers.
Hug & tuck patrol (nurses and pharmacists) are going around to cabins now tucking everyone in for a good night sleep so they will be ready for all the fun we have planned tomorrow.
Thanks to all the parents who are entrusting your children with us this week. We are honored to know each of them and to excited give them the best week ever!
