This is Belle’s fourth summer here at Camp Thurman; she has worked all four as a counselor. She is a senior at Texas A&M (Whoop!) and will be graduating in December. She looks forward to coming back to camp every summer because it is a place where God is present. From swimming, ropes activities, into skits and Bible times, He is always there helping everyone have as much fun as possible! God has made a huge impact in Belle’s life through camp, the encouragement from staffers and campers, has pushed her to pursue one of her many, many dreams to go to France after she graduates. While this is likely her last summer at camp, she wouldn’t trade a single minute for anything! She is so looking forward to each week of camp and can’t wait to meet you!
