My name is Talia and this year will be my 9th summer at Chippewa. I am from Highland Park, IL and am currently a junior at Highland Park High School. Outside of camp, I am involved with the school dance team Jammers and I am on Track and Field. One thing not a lot of people know about me is I am a third generation Chippy :).
This summer at camp, I will be teaching skiing. I like teaching this activity because being on Dam Lake is the best feeling ever and the excitement campers have when they are up on skis is so special. My favorite camp meal is paninis and my favorite Cathy’s flavor is White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle. Songfest is my favorite Evening Program because all the hard work everyone puts in finally pays off and the whole team comes together on stage. I also love Lip Sync because I love dancing, but also you get to see people come out of their shell and dance their heart out on the Chippy stage (Sophie’s Center Stage). I love being a Chippy because the bond everyone holds is so different than anywhere else. No matter who you are talking to that went to Chippewa, everyone can talk about it for hours and hours with a huge smile on their face because we can all agree it is the best place in the world. I am most excited for the summer of 2020 because every year gets better and better and I can’t wait to be back with my age groups, campers, and the entire Chippy community.
