Somersault is so exciting to return to Camp Thurman for her forth summer at camp, and her first summer as a counselor! Some of her favorite things to do at camp are the big zip line, crafts, Tarzan’s Swing, and skits! While she really enjoys doing these activities her favorite time of the day is bible study in the morning! Somersault loves to challenge the girls and help them learn their bible verse for the week.

In her free time you can find Somersault watching football and baseball games. She also really enjoys curling up and watching a movie after a long day at camp!
