— Isaiah 40:30-31 (NIV)

Kovu

Kovu is so excited to be working at Camp this summer! This is his 3rd year at camp as a counselor! Kovu also spent time at camp for 7 years as a camper so he knows the ropes! Kovu is a senior at Pepperdine University in Malibu California, studying Theatre Arts with an emphasis in Acting. His current plan is to graduate and then begin working as an actor in Los Angeles, or as a Starbucks Barista, whichever comes first (HA!). His favorite things to do are play ultimate frisbee, walk the beach, or be onstage! He is so thankful for another opportunity to work at Camp Thurman!
