My name is Alexis Farbman 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 am also involved with volunteering at NSSRA with bowling. My friend Shayna (who also goes to camp) and I volunteer on Sunday mornings at bowling. One thing not a lot of people know about me is I have a camp birthday! My birthday is July 15th, and this summer I will turn 17 at camp.
This summer at camp, I will be teaching skiing and sailing. I like teaching these activities because they were always my favorite activities as a camper. My favorite camp meal is either grilled cheese or 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 of all of the livelong friendships I have made that will last a lifetime. I am most excited for the summer of 2021 because I get to be a counselor for the first time!
