Camper Spotlight- December 2018

Grace F is featured in our December Camper Spotlight. Grace is an incredible camper who has been a loved member of the Chippewa community for quite some time. She is one of those campers who makes a point to get to know everyone at CRC- campers and staff alike. She is always willing to lend a helping hand and never fails at putting a smile on our faces. Grace is able to show her appreciation for Chippewa and takes advantage of her time at camp by making new friends, working hard at her activities and cheering as loud as she can in the lodge. Grace also happens to be a second generation Chippewa camper- her mom was both a camper and counselor at CRC. Grace was literally a Chippy from birth :). Read below to read all about Grace and her camp experience.
