February may be the shortest month of the year, but it looks like the Camp Chi Family is prepared to fill it with good things. Check out all the accomplishments and news we have so far.

We all know that Lilly Murphy is pretty special and now all of Chicagoland knows too, as she and some of her classmates were featured in the Chicago Tribune recently for RADD-Tees Inc., a company they founded that uses art designs from students to make T-shirts and then gives part of the proceeds to high school art departments. They were awarded the Young Entrepreneurs award by the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce. You can read the full article here.
