Safari

This is Safari’s fourth year working at Camp Thurman and she is so ecstatic to see what The Lord has in store this summer. Before being a staff member at camp, she was a camper from Kindergarten all the way to 8th grade. She will be attending Texas A&M University in August, majoring in biomedical science as a Pre-Med student. She feels that The Lord is calling her to use the gifts He gave her to serve and meet patient’s needs. Her favorite part about Camp Thurman is the fun and challenging rope’s courses. It’s always rewarding to see campers overcome a fear and try something new.
