How many summers have you been at camp?
This will be my 11th summer!
What cabin were you in during the summer of 2017?
What is your favorite part about being a counselor at CRC?
I love making memories with my campers, making new friends, and being able to help my campers love camp as much as I do.
What is your favorite memory from the summer of 2017?
My favorite memory from this past summer was on Kahuna Day (the original one) when my campers and I went outside and played in all the puddles by the basketball courts and by the theater. It was so fun to hang out with my campers and to play in the puddles.
What is your favorite camp memory of all time?
I think my favorite camp memory of all time is planning 4th of July with my age group. It brought us closer together and we all loved planning the day. It was something that we were all looking forward to, and we were all so happy with how the day turned out.
What are you most looking forward to in the summer of 2018?
I can’t wait to see all my camp friends and my campers!
How do you stay in touch with your camp friends during the year?
We have a group chat that we talk in a lot and we also have a group snapchat.
What do you do when you are not at camp?
I’m currently a freshman at Tulane, and I joined the club lacrosse team! Last weekend we went to San Antonio for a game and then we’re going to Houston this coming weekend. I also joined a sorority!
Anything else you would like to share with your Chippy family?
Camp friends are the best type of friends you could have. They’re the people you can go to with anything, and they’re like your sisters.They’re always there for you and you create amazing memories with them. When your life is changing, they’re the one constant thing you have.
