My name is Ilana and this year will be my 9th summer at Chippewa. I am from Deerfield, IL and am currently a senior at New York University. Outside of camp, I like to sing and create my own music. I am studying to become a music teacher, so music is a big part of my life. One thing not a lot of people know about me is that I have learned to play 9 instruments while at college.
This summer at camp, I will be teaching archery. I like teaching this activity because I love spending time at the archery range, not to mention that getting a bullseye is an amazing feeling! My favorite camp meal is grilled cheese and my favorite Cathy’s flavor is Elephant Tracks. Tan and White is my favorite Evening Program because I love the excitement of the full camp competing and seeing everyone’s amazing sportsmanship. I love being a Chippy because I love being in a place where I can be myself and forget about any stress or problems happening outside of camp. I can just relax and have fun and let all my worries melt away. I am most excited for the summer of 2021 because it will be great to spend my summer outside in the fresh air away from New York City with my sister, my campers, and my friends!
