Stephanie Zipkin — Assistant Head of Climbing

First year at camp?

My first year at camp was in 2006, I believe. I was a dekopi in Timbertop for two weeks. I remember when my dad came to pick me up, the first thing I said to him was that I was coming back for a month the year after for sure. 

What are you most excited about returning to camp for?

I can't wait to see the lake, do canoeing, have camp fires, seeing everyone and of course.. eat Joe's food!

What's something you're into right now?

Apart from being really busy in school and watching the Canadiens (because they're gonna win the cup)*, I have discovered kick boxing. It's really great to relieve stress. 

*(I had such hopes!)

Being a counsellor. Thoughts?

Being a counsellor is extremely rewarding and fun. You get to be outside and teach kids new skills. It's always nice to see campers grow from year to year.
