Hammock is so excited for this summer at Camp Thurman. Hammock went to Camp Thurman as a camper for four years, and this will be Hammock’s third summer to work at Camp Thurman and her second year as a counselor. She just finished her freshman year at Baylor University where she is pursuing a degree in Math Education. The Lord has given her a heart to love kids well with the love of Jesus, and she loves Camp Thurman so much because she gets to do just that. Camp Thurman is a place where children get to learn about the Word of God and experience the love of Jesus while doing lots of fun activities. It is going to be a great summer!
