My name is Alexis and this year will be my 9th summer at Chippewa. I am from Glencoe, IL, and am currently a senior at Lake Forest Academy. I will be a freshman at the University of Michigan in the fall. Outside of camp, I like to play field hockey and lacrosse. I play for the varsity team, for both sports, at my school. I also volunteer every Thursday at the Nuestro Center for Homework Club. At this club, I help Spanish-speaking students in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade with their homework and English. I love working with these kids and forming connections with them. I learn so much from them and get to work on my Spanish! One thing not a lot of people know about me is that I have a camp birthday! My birthday is July 15th and this summer I will turn 18.
This summer at camp, I will be teaching skiing and sailing. I am teaching these activities because they were always my favorite as a camper. My favorite camp meal is quesadillas and my favorite Cathy’s flavor is Pirate’s Booty. Tan & White is my favorite Evening Program because I love the competitive energy around camp. I love being a Chippy because I love being a part of the Chippewa family. I know that all of the other Chippies will have my back forever. I am most excited for the summer of 2022 because I get to be back at my favorite place with my favorite people!
