My name is Alexis, but people at camp call me Farbz. This year will be my 8th summer at Chippewa. I am from Glencoe, IL and am currently a junior at Lake Forest Academy. 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 17.
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 and White is my favorite Evening Program because I love working hard to win for my team and 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 2021 because I get to be a counselor for the first time!
