My name is Emersyn but most people at camp call me Emmy. This year will be my 7th summer at Chippewa. I am from Highland Park, IL and I am currently a sophomore at Highland Park High School. Outside of camp, I like to play field hockey, run cross country and hang out with my friends! One thing not a lot of people know about me is that my family and I rescued a black lab named Auggie who turned out to be the best dog ever!
This summer at camp, I will be teaching skiing and sailing. I love teaching these activities because they are my favorite activities at camp and I look forward to doing them every summer. In 2019, I was lucky enough to join the Chippewa ski team, Chippybats. I can’t wait to help campers improve their skiing and improve toward this same achievement! My favorite camp meal is grilled cheese and my favorite Cathy’s flavor is white chocolate raspberry truffle. Tan & White Capture the Flag is my favorite Evening Program. I love Capture the Flag because it is so fun to get to be with my friends and teammates. I love being a Chippy because nothing makes me happier than the memories and friendships that I have made at camp. I am most excited for the summer of 2021 because I get to be a CIT for the first time, and can’t wait to meet all of my campers.
