The November Camper Spotlight features Zoe S. Zoe is an awesome camper who embodies what it means to be a Chippy girl. She is spirited about all things Chippewa and is truly a kind friend to everybody in our camp community. This Fall, she had her Bat Mitzvah, and for her Mitzvah Project, she chose to raise money for Camp for All Kids- an organization that is so important to the CRC program. We are incredibly appreciative of her efforts and very proud of what she accomplished. Through Zoe’s hard work, more campers will be able to attend Chippewa through Camp for All Kids. Zoe is amazing- both in and out of camp- she makes Chippewa a better place and we are looking forward to seeing how Zoe grows over what is sure to be a very long camp career. Read below to learn more about Zoe’s camp experience, her life in the off-season and a bit more about her Mitzvah Project.
