ILC is an active, casual camp. Campers tend to dress comfortably and prepared for lots of physical activity and for a variety of temperatures and weather. ILC rests in the Pocono Mountains at 2,500 feet elevation. We have amazing summer weather and clean mountain air. There is very limited humidity, beautiful sunny days and cool nights, perfect for sleeping.
Please keep in mind while you are packing that average summer daytime temperatures range from 70-90 degrees Fahrenheit and night-time temperatures can range from 55-70 degrees. Also, be prepared for many different temperature and weather changes throughout the day and session.
Laundry is done once a week at ILC in commercial washer and dryers. It is picked up one day and will be returned the next day. Please provide approximately 10 days worth of clothing. Do not bring delicate clothing.
Luggage is transported to camp with your child. Please use only duffel bags or soft suitcases. All clothing, shoes, linens, equipment, electronics, instruments and cords etc. should be labeled with the camper’s name.
