BULLETIN A big thanks to Chris Mostyn for being the editor and publisher of our weekly summer

bulletin.  She’s been great at chasing people (like me….) down who forget to provide her content by the

deadline and making last minute adjustments.  The bulletin is an important part of the ongoing

communications at camp and we appreciate Chris’s efforts!!!


CLEANUP When dining and having refreshments in the Rathskeller please remember to clear your tables

and dispose of plates and glasses in the trash.  If you have a beverage left you do not want to finish, please

take that to the bar so it can be poured down the drain.  Remember we have no wait staff at the Raths.  If

you leave a mess on your table it could be you cleaning it up the next morning if you have a duty on the

morning cleanup crew.


Tree Removal and cottage remodeling projects Please remember that removal of any tree and

cottage projects can only be done with Buildings & Grounds approval.  If you have a tree that needs to be

removed or a project please contact Howard Boress for review and approval.  There are forms and

instructions on the District website IllinoisTurners.org.  If you have an emergency situation where a tree has

partially fallen or is threatening your cottage please contact Dave the Facility Manager at 224-800-3636 for

review.


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED The Illinois Turner Camp Committee is seeking two volunteers for a three year

term to help manage the wooded property across from camp and enforce Turner camp policy for no hunting,

no dumping and no trespassing. The three year term will run from Oct.1 2015 to Sept. 30 2018. New

applications will be solicited in Aug. 2018. For years there has been a serious problem with Trespassing,

Illegal hunting/Poaching and Dumping. The Camp Committee is seeking two responsible, qualified and

trusted individuals to manage the property, report trespassers and dumping to police, and prevent/report

illegal hunting in the wooded property across the street from camp. Volunteers will check the property twice

a week during the off season, check in with the camp facility manager weekly and present a report at all the

camp and district committee meetings. Volunteers will be given permission to bow hunt the property during

bow season for their contribution to camp. If you are interested please send a resume to the Camp

Committee no later than Sept. 15th. Please include your name, address, phone and email, Society and how

long you have been a member. Please include if you are a cottage owner and the frequency you are at

camp in the off season. Send resume to Illinois Turner Camp PO Box 211 Fox Rive Grove, IL 60021.

Individuals who have previously violated camp rules on trespassing, dumping or illegal hunting in the woods

across from camp will not be considered or allowed input on this project. Thanks Kevin Dahm

RECYCLING  We have had another great week in our beautiful camp. The final show was one for the

history books. It was fantastic. A big congratulations to all our camp staff and our campers. It was another

great season.


Just because the program is over does not mean camp is over. We still have a lot of season left, followed by

the fall picnics.


With that in mind nothing will change regarding the recycling program.


One issue we would like to ask you to help us with is the cans only bins located around camp. If you see

any that need to be emptied, please let one of the building and grounds folks know and we will deal with it.

Also please remember to break down boxes when putting them in the bins so we can maximize our space.


Thanks again folks it's been a great season.

RECYCLING Welcome back everyone. We have all experienced something that very rarely occurs during the camp season, a week without the Rathskeller.

We all know why this occurred, that being the 54th National Turnfest.

Our respective societies represented the Illinois District very well. Eiche placed third in their division, Aurora placed second, and Northwest Chicago was first!

A wonderful performance by those groups and a good time was had by all.

Recycling continues to go well in camp, a big thank you for helping make the program so successful. We are helping keep camp .cleaner, safer and are doing our part to help our children's future. The added recycling bin behind the Rathskeller has been a big help. Thanks all of you for utilizing it.

A couple reminders, please remember cardboard boxes do go into these bins, with the exception of pizza boxes. Please, when you put them in,break them down in order to make room for more recycleable material.

Remember foam does not get recycled, it still goes into the regular garbage bins.

A big thank you goes out to Joan Alles for supplying us with the detailed recycling list.

We are all in this together and we appreciate the assistance. If you haven't seen that list, please see the last camp bulletin dated July 17, 2015.

Thanks again for your help keeping our camp pristine. Remember, treasure it, don't trash it.

THERE WAS NO BULLETIN LAST WEEK DUE TO TURNFEST.

YOUTH Thank you to everyone who participated in Turn Fest! Way to show your Turner Spirit!

The 10 and Over Sleepout is this Wednesday. Campers who intend on sleeping out should be at the  €œTeam Spirit € campfire at the pool beforehand. Please let Mike know if you are interested in participating in the scary walk. On Thursday, the 9 and Unders will be going on a field trip to Enchanted Castle and the 10 and Overs can choose to sleep in.

Next week is Olympic Week! The campers will compete in multiple events to earn points for their team and the team with the most points wins the gold! One way to earn points is at the annual Corn Roast up at the pool on Wednesday night in place of the campfire.


Congratulations to last week €™s Campers of the Week: Sierra Bauman and Jackson Garelli; and last week €™s Swimmers of the Week: Jax Coffey, Sophie Shannon, Gunnar Garelli, Evan Boergerhoff, Kelly Bressler, and Nick Lingner. Great job!!


Mark your calendars for the 2015 Final Show on Saturday, August, 8th. There will be costume meetings on Thursday, July 30th, Monday, August 3rd, and Wednesday, August 5th at 3:00 at the pool. Please plan to attend one of these meetings for important information about your camper €™s act(s).
