For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not of your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV)

Polaroid

This will be Polaroid’s third summer at Camp Thurman and she is so excited to spend it with all of her campers! When Polaroid was younger she was a camper too and just knew that she needed to come back as a counselor to spread God’s love and His word. And it’s even more fun when she’s working alongside her sister and fellow counselor, Timber. Her favorite part about Camp Thurman is that it offers the possibility for kids to grow in their confidence by trying a new activity, and to grow in their faith by learning the spiritual meaning behind the activity.

Polaroid is a recent graduate of Birdville High School’s class of 2018 and will be attending The University of Texas at Austin in the fall to study Anthropology and Journalism. She plans to travel the world taking pictures of and writing about different cultures.
