My name is Ty and this year will be my second summer at Chippewa. I have two cousins at Chippewa and my sister, mother, and aunt are former campers and counselors. I am from Highland Park, IL and I am currently a senior at Highland Park High School. Outside of camp, I am involved with politics and social justice. One thing not a lot of people know about me is that I have flown a plane.
This summer at camp, I will be teaching climbing. I like teaching this activity because climbing was my favorite activity when I went to camp and I love teaching campers and watching them improve their skills. My favorite camp meal is brisket and my favorite Cathy’s flavor is Blue Moon. The Timberlane Social is my favorite Evening Program because that was where I went to camp and I am able to catch up with old friends. I love being a Chippy because I love teaching. I am most excited for the summer of 2023 because of the new people I will meet and the experiences I will have.
