My name is Sophie and this year will be my 12th summer at Chippewa. I am from Highland Park, IL and recently graduated from Chapman University with my B.A in Integrated Educational Studies and minors in Environmental Studies and Language and Literacy. Outside of camp, I love spending time with my friends and family, getting outside, and doing lots of different art projects! One thing people may not know about me is that I love to collect sea glass. Exploring the many beaches along Lake Michigan with my eyes peeled for specks of color peeking out from the sand and rocks is one of my favorite ways to unwind!
This summer at camp, you can find me in the office and all around camp! My favorite camp meal is barbecue and my favorite Cathy’s flavor is Lemon Sorbet. Campfires are my favorite Evening Program because I think singing campfire songs, feeling evening summer breezes whoosh through the tree, and smelling the warm, crackling fire with the greatest community in the world is the best way to wind down after a busy, fun-filled week. I love being a Chippy because our camp community is unlike anything I could possibly find in the ‘real world.’ I am most excited for the summer of 2022 because camp is a place where I know I’ll always be surrounded by supportive, creative, and genuinely kind individuals who celebrate one another in more ways than we could possibly count.
