My name is Rachel and this year will be my 9th summer at Chippewa. I am from Deerfield, IL and am currently a student at Lake Forest Academy. Outside of camp, I like to play tennis and hang with my friends. I play tennis 4 times a week and I love playing. Also, I am involved with an organization called FARE which allows me to mentor young kids with severe food allergies. I love having the opportunity to make an impact and meet new people. One thing not a lot of people know about me is that I love baking with my Dad.
This summer at camp, I will be teaching tennis. I like teaching this activity because I love being able to mentor younger campers and motivate them to play tennis outside of camp. My favorite camp meal is BBQ and my favorite Cathy’s flavor is White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle. Tan and White is my favorite Evening Program because I love being competitive and I love being on the White team! I love being a Chippy because it is such a strong community where everyone cares for each other and treats each other like family. I am most excited for the summer of 2020 because as CITs we finally get to lead Tan and White. I’ve been looking forward to this since my first summer in 2012!
