My name is Sydnie and this year will be my 8th summer at Chippewa. I am from Deerfield, IL and am currently a junior at Deerfield High School. Outside of camp, I like to play tennis and badminton, both inside and outside of school. I love spending time with my family and friends as well! 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. It is also very fun because you never know what kind of experience you will have each time! My favorite camp meal is BBQ and my favorite Cathy’s flavor is Pirate’s Booty. Tan and White games are my favorite Evening Programs because I love all of the games and how spirited everyone is! 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 2021 because I get to be a counselor for the first time and finally be back in my happy place.
