My name is Eden and this year will be my 8th summer at Chippewa! I am from Deerfield, Illinois and I am currently a junior at Deerfield High School. Outside of camp, I play field hockey, soccer, and I love to spend time with my family and friends! I am a group leader for the Warrior Buddies Club at my school and the Vice President for the Vision For Tomorrow Teen Executive Board. I truly enjoy both of these positions because I have developed new skills and formed relationships I never knew were possible. One thing not a lot of people know about me is that I was almost born on Leap Day- three hours before!
This summer at camp I will be teaching skiing. I love teaching this activity because I have skied all my years at camp and became a Chippy Bat my 5th summer!! I love helping others learn how to ski while watching them enjoy themselves just like I do. My favorite camp meal is BBQ (the beans!!!) and my favorite Cathy’s flavor is Jolted Cow. My favorite Evening Program is Tan and White. I love every game and admire the friendly competition between the two teams. I have always enjoyed being active and working together with people I love! I love being a Chippy because I have met my best friends, have a home away from home, and have developed lifelong skills that I will cherish forever. I am most excited for the summer of 2021 because camp is my happy place and there is nothing I look forward to more than spending every second with the greatest people in the most amazing place. I am beyond excited to share my love for camp with my campers, and be the counselor my counselors always were to me!
