My name is Sydnie and this year will be my 9th summer at Chippewa. I am from Deerfield, IL and am currently a senior at Deerfield High School. Outside of camp, I play tennis and badminton, and I love spending time with my family and friends as well! Out of all my clubs at school, my favorite is Warrior Buddies and I am on the executive board as Historian. Warrior Buddies makes such a big difference in people’s lives and promotes kindness and inclusion which I highly value. One thing not a lot of people know about me is that I can barely get up on two skis!
This summer at camp, I will be teaching sailing! I like teaching sailing because it has always been my favorite activity and I want to share my love for sailing with others. Every time is a new experience that you will never forget! My favorite camp meal is BBQ and my favorite Cathy’s flavor is Pirate’s Booty. Tan & White games are my favorite Evening Programs because I love all of the games and how spirited everyone is! I also love Lip Sync because it is a chance to get out of your comfort zone, dress up, and dance your heart out in a Chippy dance party after it! I love being a Chippy because I get to spend every summer at the most amazing place, with even better people. I am so beyond lucky that I can call this place my second home. Camp has allowed me to make lifelong friendships and be myself at all times. I am most excited for the summer of 2022 because I get to be back in my happy place and spend the summer with my best friends, campers, and the whole camp community.
