My name is Talia and this year will be my 9th summer at Chippewa. I am from Highland Park, IL and am currently a student at University of Colorado- Boulder. Outside of camp, I like to spend time in the mountains (hiking, skiing, enjoying the fresh air). One thing not a lot of people know about me is I have played volleyball my whole life. This year during the times of COVID, I have enjoyed giving private lessons to young volleyball players who are not able to continue in the gym with coaches this season. I love working with kids and playing volleyball, so this was a great way to do both while giving back. Fun fact: I’ve competed in the Picolomini challenge at camp 4 times but never won!
This summer at camp, I will be teaching sailing. I like teaching this activity because there is no better feeling than the exhilaration of sailing on your own, and I want every camper to experience that! My favorite camp meal is BBQ and my favorite Cathy’s flavor is ALL OF THEM BECAUSE I CAN’T CHOOSE. Lip Sync is my favorite Evening Program because the whole camp gets to go on stage and be silly. I love being a Chippy because of the people I have met that I know are lifelong friends. I am most excited for the summer of 2021 because I get to be with my amazing campers that I miss so much!
