This is Camaro’s 7th summer working at Camp Thurman, and her love for it has increased with each summer. She has spent the last three summers lifeguarding, and she absolutely loves being in the water, watching over the kids, and helping them enjoy the outdoors. She is a junior at The Master’s University in California, where she is majoring in English literature and working to become a high school English teacher. She has two siblings who work at Camp Thurman, Hobbes and Ripple, and she is so thankful to have a job in the outdoors, working with family and close friends, sharing the Gospel with amazing kids and seeking to grow in her faith.
