The Sari Diaries- Thursday 6/11/15

Wednesday, June 10 by Sari Hirsch

Dear Chippies, Parents, Family and Friends,

Every Thursday, Sophie Marwil (Assistant Director) will be guest blogging on The Sari Diaries. I am very excited for you to read her posts as she is an excellent writer and has a great pulse on the happenings around camp. There was quite a process for choosing the Thursday blogger but I am confident that you will love reading what Sophie has to write. Below is her first post…enjoy!

Happy Camping and Love,

Dearest Chippies,

I am writing to you today (as well as for the next 9 Thursdays) at the request of everyone’s favorite Chippy, Sari Hirsch. And although her posts will definitely be difficult to top, I will try my absolute best to keep you entertained and updated with all the important need-to-know Chippy happenings.

Just to give you a little bit of background about myself, this is my twelfth summer here at CRC. If you ask Cliff, he will tell you about how my homesick 11-year-old self got up on stage and sang in front of the whole camp during my first summer. And while this may very well be my Chippewa legacy, today my only real camp talents include slip ’n slide and trampball… But in all seriousness, camp has honestly been one of the most important constants in my life thus far and I could not be happier to be able to spend yet another summer at this amazing place.

That’s enough about me. As for pre-pre-camp updates, today has been one of the best days yet. Whitney Kreiter and Melissa Deutschman (two old-time Chippies) came up to visit for the weekend and Emily Fradin (the Assistant Waterfront Director) pulled into the circle drive at approximately 7:37 tonight. All of these Chippy arrivals are getting us very excited for the rest of the staff to get here oh-so soon. It is already clear that #TheRanch2015 is going to be the greatest summer any of us Chippies have ever seen :).

Well… I think that’s about all for tonight, folks. Thanks for reading and I will talk to you all next week.

Sophie (more commonly referred to as Soph-Aloaf)
