Hobbes has worked 7 summers at Camp Thurman and the summer of 2017 is going to be his 8th! He gets his name from the amazing comic strip “Calvin and Hobbes”. He loves Camp Thurman so much, that he is trying his absolute best to just do it for forever. The ability to have fun in God’s creation and show a new group of kids how great our God is, is something that Hobbes treasures very deeply. He graduated from Pantego Christian Academy in 2013, and received an Associate’s Degree in Art in 2016. He is going to be finishing his education at the University of Texas in Arlington in the fall, studying Communication.

His favorite things at camp are BB’s & Archery, Skits, and the BIG ZIPLINE! He loves to sing and dance like nobody is watching (even though most of the time, everybody is watching.) In 2016, he watched 366 new movies that he’s never seen before, and loves the applications that movies can have in our walk with the Lord. Hobbes is SO excited to see what God has in store for your camper here at Camp Thurman, and he’s honored to get to share in that experience.
