My name is Sophie and this year will be my 11th summer at Chippewa. I am from Highland Park, IL and am currently a senior at Chapman University. Outside of camp, I like to be outside and explore whatever is around me, go on drives while singing along to music, and I am involved in the leadership council for my college. One thing not a lot of people know about me is that I drove across the country last winter to come home from school. I love road trips! I also am an avid Webkinz player (since 2006) and my favorite game is Pizza Palace.
This summer at camp, I will be teaching swimming. I like teaching this activity because the lake is one of the best places in camp and swimming has played such an integral role in my life. Plus, it’s awesome to get to see campers develop such a huge love for the lake and swimming! My favorite camp meal is barbecue and my favorite Cathy’s flavor is Lemon Sorbet. Campfires are my favorite Evening Program because there is nothing better than getting to sing campfire songs, feel the breeze come through the trees, and smell that warm, crackling fire with my best friends in the world to wind down after a fun-filled week. I love being a Chippy because the Chippewa community is unlike anything I could possibly find in “the real world.” I am most excited for the summer of 2021 because I’ll get to spend my time laughing and smiling more than I do anywhere else in the world.
