My name is Alana and this year will be my 9th summer at Chippewa. I am from Austin, Texas and am currently a junior at Westwood High School. Outside of camp I am involved in a jewish youth group called BBYO, where I am the president of my chapter. I am also on my school’s water polo team, the historian of a teaching club, and occasionally participate in my school’s debate team. One thing not a lot of people know about me is I can do very good impersonations/impressions.
This summer at camp, I will be teaching swimming. I like teaching this activity because swimming as a very important skill to have as a person and everyone finds ways to improve through our swimming program! My favorite camp meal is BBQ or Sunday breakfast and my favorite Cathy’s flavor is White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle. Lip Sync is my favorite Evening Program because I always love watching the energy that campers put in and seeing how well everyone performs. As a camper, I was very enthusiastic and put a lot of high energy into Lip Sync because it was my calling.I love being a Chippy because of the amazing memories that come with being one and the people who associate with this magical place. I am most excited for the summer of 2020 because I’m excited to see my summer sisters and campers that I haven’t seen all year while being the absolute best version of myself!
