This is Blush’s first summer being a counselor at Camp Thurman. She has been on staff at camp for four years now and grew up going to Camp Thurman as a camper for five years. Blush just graduated from Mansfield High School and will be attending Texas Christian University in the fall. She loves how Camp Thurman touches on the youth of the next generation of Christian leaders. There is truly no other place where campers get to be silly while learning about our Lord. Blush feels the Lord is leading her to touch the lives of the next generation through Camp Thurman. Blush when not being a counselor feels God is leading her down a medical path. This is why she will be studying biology in the fall. Blush is so excited for this summer! She can not wait to meet all of her campers. This is going to be the best summer ever.
